As Escamillo in Carmen

“Granted, the resources of this new and intrepid opera company are limited, but apparently not the talents of its members, who offered a fine performance of [Carmen]. …soloists, dancers and chorus moved fluently and purposefully on stage, the action always aligned with the story. …All of this would be irrelevant, of course, if the singers did not come through. They did… but more importantly, many of these youthful voices showed real promise for the future…. Escamillo was beautifully sung by Sepp Hammer.”
-The Boston Musical Intelligencer
