Handel's Messiah, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra 2016:
“…Smooth, dark and resonant bass Christopher Richardson was outstanding throughout, his final “The trumpet shall sound” noble and assured with a comforting vocal flexibility that even his colleagues clearly delighted in”.
Paul Selar, Herald Sun, December 2016
Hercules (Handel), Canberra Choral Society, 2015:
“The primo uomo role of Hercules was realised by Richardson’s firm and secure Bass voice, resonant even in the most acrobatic passages…”
Judith Crispin, CityNews 1 June 2015
Iphigenie en Tauride (Gluck), Pinchgut Opera, 2014:
“…Christopher Richardson cuts a chilling figure as Thoas, hands steeped in pitch, garbed in black with white face paint. He makes the bloodthirsty, superstitious, tormented King a truly terrifying figure, singing with firmness and character."
Clive Paget, Limelight Magazine, December 2014
"As Thoas, the Scythian ruler, Christopher Richardson is striking and dramatic in black, and gives a glittering menacing performance. Crow-like, he is tall and lethal, his face in white makeup and in fine commanding voice"
Lynne Lancaster, ArtsHub, December 2014
Alexander Balus (Handel), Canberra Choral Society, 2014:
“…Christopher Richardson as Ptolemy was a powerful presence, matching his majestic vocal performance with very convincing, animated dramatic skills. “.
Jennifer Gall, SMH, 22 September 2014
The Creation (Haydn), Canberra Choral Society 2013:
“…Richardson, too, has a beautiful voice, and with a big range, reaching some impossibly low notes with ease. He has plenty of potential to realise in a voice that surely will capture the world’s stages….”
Clinton White, CityNews, 3 December 2013
KURSK: An Oratorio-Requiem (Chisholm), World Premiere, Melbourne Festival 2011:
“...more striking were the principal vocalists, particularly bass-baritone
Christopher Richardson whose solid production remained impeccable.”
Clive O'Connell, The Age, 22 October 2011
