“Matthew Newlin’s refined lyric tenor beautifully encompassed the high writing of the serenade...” -- South Florida Classical Review


“Matthew Newlin brought a light, graceful tenor to his solos as well as more vehement expression when raging against the perfidy of women.” -- Chicago Classical Review



“Sporting a parade of French, Latin American, British and New England accents, Matthew Newlin was an entertainer par excellence. A strong lyric tenor, Newlin encompassed the dulcet Mozartean melody of the finale and the high tessitura of the Cardinal’s speech without strain. He is definitely a young singer to watch.” -- South Florida Classical Review


The tenor, Matthew Newlin was a real discovery.  His clear lyric instrument had the sweetness and agility needed to distinguish all of his contributions, notably the recitative ‘Comfort ye, my people’ and its accompanying air, ‘Every valley shall be exalted.’” -- Chicago Tribune


“Other good singing came from the two armored guards in Act II, Matthew Newlin and Ryan Milstead, who sang this wonderfully prophetic, almost Romantic music with real flair.” -- Palm Beach Arts Paper


“Santa Fe Opera apprentice Matthew Newlin was a sweet-toned Condulmiero, who appears in the opening scene then, regrettably, disappears.” -- Simon Williams, Opera News


“And how about a shout-out to apprentice tenor Matthew Newlin, who brought pungency and focus to the first scene’s Condulmiero.” -- Lee B. Ahmo at Parterre Box
