   "I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Maestro Charles Morris on Das Rheingold for the Hartford Wagner Festival.  His knowledge of the opera along with amazing intuition created a perfect dramatic arc to the performance" 

Robert Brubaker, (Mime) Metropolitan Opera Tenor


“ A few seasons ago, I had the pleasure of working with Maestro Morris on a new production of Wagner’s Das Rheingold. He impressed us all with his deep & thorough knowledge of the work as well as his able, attentive technique conducting this complicated piece.”

Ross Crolius, (Fafner) Metropolitan Opera Bass


"Maestro Charles Morris conducted Das Rheingold with a singer's sense and complete knowledge of the work. His ability to communicate from the orchestra pit to the singers is unmatched in my own experience. Entrances were precise and his conducting style is clear and understandable, allowing me the freedom I needed to express my character."

  Kyle Erdos-Knapp, (Loge) Tenor


Opera News 1974- "Charles Morris created the role of Padre Francisco in Thomas Pasatieri’s “The Penitentes”. “…baritone Charles Morris ably sang the role of Padre Francisco with a smooth, pleasant baritone.”


Lynchburg Daily Advance 1974 review of Man of La Mancha, “The title role of Don Quixote was sung by Charles Morris who was every bit as good as Richard Kiley whom this reviewer saw in the original Broadway production. Morris brought an understanding of the torment of Quixote in his quest for right in the world as he saw it. His rendition of “Impossible Dream” was a show-stopper.”
