Virginia Opera brings out the affection, grit and relevance of Weill’s “Street Scene”

"As Sam Kaplan, Rose’s caring friend and neighbor, David Blalock served up ardent anguish and bluesy loneliness with his solid tenor."

Grace Jean, Washington Classical Review
Street Scene Sparkles in Fairfax, Norfolk, and Richmond

"Maureen McKay and David Blalock (portraying the would-be lovers Rose and Sam) are in beautiful voice and emote well for the duets 'We’ll Go Away Together' and 'Don’t Forget the Lilac Bush.'”

Mark Dreisonstok, Fairfax News
Virginia Opera's "Street Scene" is a real find

"McKay’s lyric soprano duets with David Blalock, as the 'nice' boy in her life, are filled with the lyrical ring of young, Broadway-style, love. His rich tenor scores, too, with 'Lonely House,' one of the periodic, too abrupt, mood changes to darkness."

Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot
PELLÉAS ET MÉLISANDE – West Edge Opera

"Tenor David Blalock, fresh-voiced and fervent as Pelléas, avoided the cliches of the role by dancing nimbly across the boundaries of willful pursuit and passivity."

Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle
So Much More Than ‘Sleep No More’

“Appropriately, these two roles boasted On Site’s strongest casting. Tenor David Blalock made a powerful case for the Count’s vigorously florid vocal writing and projected the disturbing sense of fratty entitlement of a grown-up Patrick Bateman.”

James Jorden, New York Observer
Home brew

“But the evening was dominated by its master, tenor David Blalock as a swaggeringly confident yet faintly ridiculous Count. Blalock, who also sang the Count in On Site's Barbiere, handled the score's most florid part with commanding charisma if crumbling self-possession."

Christopher Corwin, Parterre Box
Following ‘Figaro’ From Room to Room in a Townhouse

“The wonderful cast includes the charismatic tenor David Blalock as the count ..." 

Anthony Tommasini, New York Times
Il Barbiere di Siviglia

"David Blalock's unflappable Almaviva was another charmer; his dark tenor negotiating his music stylishly."

David Shengold, Opera News
Paisiello’s Barbiere from On Site Opera in New York Landmark Building

“The Count of David Blalock exuded youthful impetuosity, his tenor bright and engaging. His beautiful strophic serenade to Rosina, “Saper bramate” (the tune of which she picks up at the window), was meltingly sung.”

Robert Levine, Bachtrack
On Site’s ‘The Barber of Seville’ Unfolds in a Surprising Setting

"Count Almaviva (the appealing lyric tenor David Blalock) serenaded the smitten Rosina."
