Andrew Thomas Pardini

Baritone

"At the top of the list in this production [was] bass-baritone Andrew Pardini as Don Giovanni...Mr. Pardini radiated a rough and ready wit through his commanding vocal presence…" — Communities Digital News

"Andrew Pardini as Figaro was extremely charismatic and a boundless ball of energy. He provided some of the best moments of the evening as he schemed and charmed his way out of every new conflict occurring in the story and had the audience on his side from the first moments of the opera." — BWW Opera World

"Of course, Andrew Pardini stole the show as Papageno — Schikaneder knew what he was doing. But not by flouncing around, rather by making a complete character — someone you felt you knew by the end of the opera."
— The Berkshire Review for the Arts
