RAVE REVIEWS FOR DENNIS PETERSEN'S MIME IN SIEGFRIED AT SEATTLE OPERA 2013
"If anything, [Petersen’s] robust tenor voice seems even larger and sweeter (yes, a melliflous Mime!) than ever before. Petersen creates a sharp characterization of a sniveling, sinister force of evil. Yet the inherent humor that we expect from any great Mime is present as well."
—Opera Warhorses, 8/8/13
"Petersen's portrayal of Mime, and the duality of the relationship with Siegfried, was fascinating to behold. Not only was Petersen's voice marvelous, his diction impeccable and precise, but . . . he and Vinke [Siegfried] show that there is a curious intimacy between them, for all of Siegfried's berating and bullying."
—Northwest Reverb, 8/9/13
