"Anthony Webb, who impressed me in a concert of Caramoor Bel Canto Young Artists a few seasons ago, was Rodolfo ...

Mr. Webb is very comfortable on stage, and among the cast's strongest actors."
"The Little Opera Theater is presenting “The Reformed Drunkard” with alternating casts; on Tuesday the strongest impressions were made by Anthony Wright Webb, a nimble tenor, as Mathurin, and Ron Loyd, a robust baritone, as Lucas.
