Jay Hunter Morris’s Ahab is a ‘force of nature’ at San Francisco Opera
Jay Hunter Morris thrilled in the San Francisco Opera premiere of Jake Heggie’s Moby-Dick as “he sang with a pressurized fury that practically shook the seats of the War Memorial Opera House. […] Amazing Morris stepped on stage and announced Ahab’s obsession” (Mercury News). Jay Hunter Morris was described by The San Francisco Examiner as “the new leading heldentenor in San Francisco and Metropolitan Opera Wagner roles (who) handles the high-tessitura effortlessly”, whilst the San Francisco Chronicle mentioned he “sang tirelessly and with fierce lyricism in some of the opera’s more fine-grained scenes”.
