July 12th, 2009The Rape of Lucretia, Collatinus

Harry Rolnick, Concertonet.com

February 11th, 2009Impressions of Pelléas, Golaud

"The evening’s most impressive performance came from bass/baritone Allen Boxer as Golaud. Tender and pleading at first, Mr. Boxer later became wounded and impassioned as Golaud confronted his wife and brother. His movement from frustration to true rage was impressive, and [...] he brought ample expressiveness to the role’s wide tessitura, with particular warmth in his middle and upper range."
Dave Allen, The Bulletin

"Also effective was Allen Boxer, the firm-toned bass-baritone who sang the role of the Moorish physician who helps Iolanta regain her sight."
Robert Baxter, Concertonet.com
