Oren Gradus gives a “stylishly sculpted” performance in Lyric Opera Baltimore’s Nabucco

This weekend Oren Gradus’s performance as Zaccaria in Lyric Opera Baltimore’s production of Nabucco was met with acclaim. Writing for The Washington Post, Tom Huizenga noted that the Brooklyn-born bass “sang with requisite bluster and beauty.”

Likewise, Tim Smith of The Baltimore Sun had praise for Oren’s account of the Hebrew priest in Verdi’s Babylonian drama: “As Zaccaria, the high priest of the Hebrews, the bass Oren Gradus sculpted his music stylishly.”
