    Tenor Greg Fedderly filled the other great theatrical/comic role, Monostatos. This production dresses him in a Divine-like getup, wrapped in a bat-wing cape, and Fedderly let the camp speak effectively for itself, while singing and acting with light-hearted verve.
    George Grella, The New York Classical Review, 28 September 2017

    “Greg Fedderly’s portrayal of Monostatos is wonderfully witty…”
    David M. Rice, Classical Source, 27 September 2017

    “The rest of the cast was made of superb character actors. Greg Fedderly in the role of Monostatos, the Queen’s slave, who goes undercover in Sarastro’s temple, played the part as a villain in a cheesy superhero TV show, perhaps even the Penguin.

    In collaboration with Markus Werba’s Papageno, Fedderly made the dialogue come alive with spectacular comic timing.”

    “Maria Valdes made the most of her small role as Papageno’s exuberant intended, Papagena; while tenor Greg Fedderly was such a lively Monostatos, the villain of the piece, it was a joy to watch him looming over Pamina. With Solís, these three could give Broadway veterans some competition.”

    Pamela Feinsilber, The Huffington Post, 28 October 2017

    “Tenor Greg Fedderly engagingly provided an evil counterpoint with his portrayal of the lecherous Monostatos.”

    James Ambroff-Tahan, The San Francisco Examiner, 21 October 2017

    “Tenor Greg Fedderly, known here for roles in Peter Grimes, Samson and Delilah and Murder in the Cathedral, projected with effective passion in the often-underappreciated role of the Messenger.”

    “The gifted tenor Greg Fedderly is especially effective as the Senator, an omnipresent and overbearing father figure who urges his daughter on to vengeance from beyond the grave.”
