Vocalist - Tenor
Bottesini's ALI BABA - Opera Southwest

"[The] tenor was the lyrically gifted Christopher Bozeka [as Nadir] whose smooth but warm and hefty legato immediately won the audience over to his side of the argument."

Bottesini's ALI BABA - Opera Southwest

"Tenor Christopher Bozeka sang the role of Nadir and is a major voice to look out for in the future. The tenor has a fine and elegant sound that he controls and uses to compelling effect. On this evening he sang with an ardent and rounded sound that easily moved through the legato orchestral line.

In his Act One aria, he relished the vocal lines, extending them with gorgeous piano sounds that crescendoed to a forte and that went into the upper tessitura beautifully. As he became more desperate about losing Delia, his voice garnered a more passionate weight that climaxed in the final lines of the act on “O Gioia” once he found the money to marry Delia. Here he let out glowing high notes that cut potently through the orchestra.

Then in Act Four he sang another aria accompanied by a mandolin with bright and joyous timbre that portrayed the happiness Nadir felt upon seeing Delia return to him. In this aria he held out legato lines as long as he could and his upper register gleamed with delicacy and beauty. His duet with Delia at the end of Act One was also a highlight as both voices harmonized into one."

"[Rosina]... paired well with Christopher Bozeka (Almaviva), who serenaded his object of desire with a longing tenor while standing on a giant guitar. Bozeka dialed up the humor when disguised as a drunken soldier and substitute music teacher..."

Theatre Review: Rossini’s ‘The Barber of Seville’ at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap

"Bozeka’s clear tenor radiated romance in 'Se il mio nome,' setting his intentions for the entire show and never leaving a trace of doubt in the sincerity of his love. This sincerity, however, was contrasted by his hilarious interpretations of his two disguises."

Helen Ganley, MD Theatre Guide
Music takes center stage in Wolf Trap’s over-the-top “Barber of Seville”

"Tenor Christopher Bozeka’s clean and focused high notes gave him the right vocal swagger for Almaviva, with just enough hamminess to pull off the character’s disguises as soldier and music teacher."

Charles T. Downey, Washington Classical Review
L'ELISIR D'AMORE - Opera Las Vegas

"Nemorino, sung by tenor, Christopher Bozeka, established immediately his comfort and command with this role in his opening aria, 'Quanto è bella,' singing with a beautiful, clear tone... A highlight of the first act was 'Chiedi all’aura lusingiera,' Adina and Nemorino’s duet. Their chemistry was evident as Adina tolerated Nemorino’s desperation. Here Bozeka came into his own vocally with superb phrasing, amazing dynamic control, and a breathtaking decrescendo... A touching moment was 'Una furtiva lagrima,' which was gorgeously sung by Bozeka, displaying velvety tone coupled with simple and highly effective vocal delivery. He received a well-deserved 'Bravo!' from the audience."

"Christopher Bozeka played the charlatan Adolfo Pirelli with elixirs concocted of piss and ink, his bright tenor bright and pleasant."

Atlanta Opera gives ‘Sweeney Todd’ plenty of edge

"Christopher Bozeka shines in the supporting comic role of the showy mountebank Adolfo Pirelli: He performs the part as a broad satire of a flashy, pompous, old-school Italian opera singer, a fitting and funny take that he pulls off with aplomb."

Andrew Alexander, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Kinetic Ensemble "Inner Voices" Concert

"Tenor Christopher Bozeka, an HGO studio alumnus, entered Cotton’s 'Pastoral' scene with a pure, clarion voice, and sensitively added tender playfulness to paint the picture of 'a very little, little flock'...Bozeka was fantastic in the 'Lyke-Wake Dirge,' building up an atmosphere of menace and fear within the repetitive construction of the verse through a variety of vocal colors, from muted and ethereal to firm and powerful...[He] showed off another side of his versatile voice in Jonson’s 'Hymn to Diana,' having a bit of light-hearted, nimbly articulated fun while the strings shimmered brightly behind him."

“Christopher Bozeka as the greasy showman Pirelli brought a knowing chuckle from this opera-savvy audience which recognized their form’s excesses.”

“Among the singers who managed to shine even under the circumstances were soprano Amina Edris and tenor Christopher Bozeka, who joined forces for a tonally lustrous and expressively captivating account of the love duet from Gounod’s ‘Roméo et Juliette.’”
