“THE TENOR AARON SHEEHAN, who sings the role of Orpheus, a finely nuanced interpretation.”
— Gramaphone Magazine 2014

“Played by Aaron Sheehan, whom I've seen in French, Italian, and English roles, though he's arguably at his best in the French repertoire. His high tenor brings a fine sense of style to a very well produced instrument, and a rich vocal warmth. Sheehan's agility isn't on display in this score, but his air "Ah! Bergers, c'en est fait" is an excellent example of his evocation of pathos” — Fanfare Magazine Oct 2014
