Rick Perdian,

Dallas Opera, La bohème, March 2019

Scott Cantrell,
Dallas News

Tulsa Opera, The Little Prince, February 2019

“Will Liverman as The Pilot was without a doubt the anchor of the whole show. His is a darkly-hued baritone with the peculiar quality of depth and elegance."
Freddy Dominguez,
Operawire

George London Foundation Recital Series, December 2018

“His baritone is one of sheer beauty—booming, round and totally consistent across his register; his high notes never thinned, his low notes were never too weighty.”
Opera News

The Metropolitan Opera, Marnie, October 2018

“… Met debutant Will Liverman, who deftly limned the duplicitous Malcolm Fleet.”
F. Paul Driscoll,
Opera News

Florentine Opera, The Magic Flute, May 2018

"Baritone Will Liverman delivered a likable, funny Papageno, singing the role with warmth and power." 
Elaine Schmidt, Journal Sentinel 

Lyric Opera of Chicago, Fellow Travelers, March 2018

"Will Liverman is the insightful and scheming friend of Potter, Tommy McIntyre. His singing is suave and compelling."
M.L. Rental, Hyde Park Herald

Seattle Opera, Barber of Seville, November 2017

"The Chicago-based baritone is one of the most versatile singing artists performing today, being equally skilled in classical repertoire and less mainstream works..."
Erica Miner, Bachtrack

Seattle Opera, Barber of Seville, November 2017

"In the lead role of Figaro on closing night, Will Liverman brought the character to life with bravado, moving freely about the stage, animatedly leading the characters through the action as the plot unwound."
Lina de la Torre, 
Huff Post

Seattle Opera, Barber of Seville, October 2017

"Liverman’s warm, agile baritone was enhanced by a suave and savvy stage presence." 
Melinda Bargreen, The Seattle Times

English National Opera, Yardbird, June 2017

"You would be hard-pressed to find a new opera sung with more verve or virtuosity...Indeed, as you listen to [Parker's] duet with Will Liverman’s Dizzy Gillespie you really feel something of the freewheeling joy that those pioneers generated in their 1940s heyday, albeit transferred here from instruments to voices."
Richard Morrison, The Times (UK)

"Will Liverman as Parker’s friend Dizzy Gillespie brought some much-needed humour into the proceedings." 
Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph

"The cast is strong with Angela Brown as Charlie’s mother Addie and Will Liverman as Dizzy Gillespie standing out in particular."
Sam Smith,
MusicOMH

"Angela Brown brings heft to the predictably drawn role of Addie, Charlie’s mother, while baritone Will Liverman is a plausible Dizzy Gillespie."
David Gutman,
The Stage

Portland Opera, La Bohème, May 2017

"Will Liverman was an exemplary Marcello, handsome of voice, full of energy."
Mark Mandel,
Opera News

Virginia Opera, The Barber of Seville, November 2016

"As Figaro, Virginia Beach's up and coming baritone Will Liverman was in top form, his every appearance enhancing the action. He excelled in his rapid-fire, vocally gymnastic patter-type moments..." 
Virginia Gazette 

"Virginia Beach native Will Liverman is brilliantly engaging as the Barber, formerly Count Almaviva's servant and now Doctor Bartolo's barber and fixer of everything from love's pitfalls to minor forgeries. Undaunted by Rossini's fast, difficult ornaments, his lithe baritone easily handles the challenges of his opening aria, "Largo al Factotum," his duet with the count, and the hilarious sestet that finishes Act I, all while moving smoothly about Shoko Kambara's excellently workable set." 
M.D. Ridge, The Virginian-Pilot

"Will Liverman as Figaro has a robust and rich tone and impressive rhythmic control, especially in the staccato runs, and an endearing charisma."
Andrew Garrigue, Richmond Times-Dispatch

Wolf Trap Opera, The Rape of Lucretia, June 2016

"...a lithe, metallic baritone..."
Anne Midgette, The Washington Post
