"Michael Hewitt sings such life into Angelotti in his first and only act, that we continue to care deeply for him and cheer his heroic act of defiance" - DC Theatre Scene 

"Michael Hewitt's Angelotti...is luxury casting" - A Beast In A Jungle

"Michael H
ewitt’s vibrant baritone served him well as Angelotti. "- Opera News

"Michael Hewitt brought the necessary touch of darkness to the plot as Jud Fry."

- Wall Street Journal 

"I was very engaged by Michael Hewitt’s well-considered take on Jud Fry, which explored the personal contradictions that inform the show’s most interesting and varied personality. Mr. Hewitt’s Jud is a handsome man, and a reliable worker, seeming nothing like the odious threat some productions offer. Instead, he becomes more and more interesting as the layers of his tragic character peel away. His participation in Pore Jud reveals real humanity, and by the time Michael takes on Lonely Room, the pathos and urgent desperation in his beautifully produced, bronzed baritone draw us into his emotional paralysis. This was a memorable role assumption."

- Opera Today

"Colorado baritone Michael Hewitt gave an authoritative performance as the 14th century monarch Edoardo III… Hewitt’s focused baritone has the weight to convey the darker emotions of an unsympathetic character."

 

- Opera War Horses

"Lieutenant Horstmayer, a German Jew married to a French woman, performed with a simmering intensity by Michael Hewitt, was perhaps the most complex and sophisticated of the characterizations."

 

- seeandheard-international.com

"Michael Hewitt was especially strong as Lieutenant Horstmayer."

 

- Classical Voice America

"while baritone Michael Hewitt excelled as Lieutenant Horstmayer, with his surprising secret kept under wraps until the end."

 

- BroadwayWorld

"the baritone Michael Hewitt, the tenor Frederick Ballentine, and the soprano Laura Choi Stuart were among those who particularly caught my ear. - Washington Post

The singers… managed juggling roles and musical styles with their skills and daring-do, bringing to mind the proverbial Barnum and Bailey three-ring circus. Performances by Alexander McKissick, Michael Hewitt, Eliza Bonet, Laura Choi Stuart, and Frederick Ballentine were all commendable with Bonet and Hewitt pulling off the equivalent of an operatic triathlon."
