SUPERB SINGING AND PLAYING IN OPERA BOSTON'S FIDELIO "The cast —Christine Goerke (Leonore), Andrew Funk (Rocco), Michael Hendrick (Florestan), Meredith Hansen (Marzelline), Scott Bearden (Don Pizzaro), Jason Ferrante (Jaquino) and Robert Honeysucker (Don Fernando) — was excellent throughout, all boasting of big and beautiful instruments that they used to full effect."
~ Mark Kroll, The Boston Musical Intelligencer

Mershon Auditorium - Columbus, Ohio (USA)

FIDELIO @ OHIO STATE- AND THE WINNER IS... "I grew up hearing Jon Vickers do the role, so my standards are impossibly high, and Jon Vickers in his 80s is living a happy retirement in Bermuda. But bing-o, tenor Michael Hendrick is en route to save the show. He gets off a plane at 9 pm on March 8 while the first dress rehearsal is going on, comes in to Mershon auditorium with his coat on and luggage in hand, gets on stage and sings…and sings…WOW! Mind you, the guy barely had time to take off his coat. Thank you, Michael Hendrick."
