  • March 6,7,9 Richmond Symphony: Britten, Les Illuminations “Dorian Wilson, sixth of the music-director candidates to conduct Masterworks concerts with the Richmond Symphony, is joined by a onetime University of Michigan classmate, tenor Robert Breault, in one of the most striking selections in the orchestra’s current season: "Les Illuminations," Benjamin Britten’s song cycle on poems of Arthur Rimbaud.”…In the second of three performances of "Les Illuminations," Breault, positioned above and behind the strings, projected forcefully and sounded thoroughly immersed in both the spirit and imagery of Rimbaud's strangely evocative texts. Expressively, the French language was no barrier to the listener's understanding. Breault was a clarion narrative voice in "Villes" and "Royauté." In more impressionistic texts, such as "Antique" and "Being Beautious," his tone was softer, more misty, and his inflection more poetic. His consistency of tone production, up to some very high notes, was remarkable. In all, he delivered an absorbing performance. Letter V (Clark Bustard) March 8, 2009 Richmond Symphony, Les Illuminations, Britten Performance, completed 2009.

  • Milwaukee Florentine Opera: Handel, Semele (Jupiter). “…But songs like “Where‘er you walk” are more matter-of-fact and clean. Their emotional heft relies more on clarity and phrasing than booming, sing-to-the-cheap-seats firepower. That’s exactly what tenor Robert Breault gave the song, with beautifully sensitive accompaniment by the Florentine Orchestra, conducted by Jane Glover.” Milwaukee Magazine (Kosidowski) March 3, 2009
 Florentine Opera (Milwaukee), Semele, Handel “The singers commanded the music from a place high enough to allow them to focus, first, on the emotional shadings rather than the thousands of notes and, second, on stylish acting and nuanced comedy….Tenor Robert Breault's Jove is a smooth operator, in the way he sings and the way he moves.. His rendition of the lyric aria "Wherever You Walk" would melt any woman's heart.” Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (Strini) February 28, 2009

  • Edmonton Opera: Verdi, Rigoletto (Duke). “Tenor Robert Breault made his EO (Edmonton Opera) debut with distinction as the Duke of Mantua. He looks the part of a man who can seduce women with more than just his power and wealth, and he has a lustrous voice. I hope the company puts him at the top of the list for future ventures calling for an excellent voice with an attractive masculine presence.” Opera Canada (Rankin) January, 2010 Edmonton Opera, Rigoletto, Verdi. Performance, completed 2009.
