Press

“The most confident singing came from the Serbian bass, Sava Vemic, as Rodolfo. Mr. Vemic brought a mellow, full-bodied voice, a feeling for bel canto phrasing and commanding stage presence to his portrayal.”
February 10, 2016

 

“In Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux, the role of Sir Walter Raleigh is a bass cameo, unlikely to be singled out for review. But when Sava Vemic sang it with Eve Queler and the Opera Orchestra of New York at Carnegie Hall last spring, reviewers sat up and took note.”
Spotlight Artist of the Month, May 2015
