Rolando was recently spotlighted on Schmopera, interviewed by Classicalite, HowlRound, and Broadway World Opera, and profiled in Montgomery Magazine, talking about his world premiere production of Andrew Lippa's I Am Anne Hutchinson / I Am Harvey Milk, starring Broadway legend Kristin Chenoweth.

Rolando was exclusively interviewed in the Latin Post, discussing his work with Young Artists of America, singing for the Baltimore Orioles, and how his soul and voice belong to Verdi.

He was also featured in The Baltimore Sun after singing "a raucously well-received national anthem" at the Baltimore Orioles playoff opener the same night as his opening of Amleto at Baltimore Concert Opera. 

Rolando was recently selected by popular vote as the winner of "The Star-Spangled Sing-Off", representing classical music and the Maryland State Arts Council. He performed as part of the Star-Spangled Spectacular to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of our National Anthem. The week-long celebration also featured performances by Kristin Chenoweth, Melissa Etheridge, Denyce Graves, Little Big Town, Pentatonix, Smokey Robinson, Kenny Rogers, Train, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.



Nemorino in L'elisir d'amore, Florentine Opera

"Rolando Sanz's Nemorino was built of gorgeous musical deliveries, including an "Una furtiva lagrima" that won the biggest applause of the evening. The tenor used light-footed physical energy and priceless, communicative facial expressions to make the audience care what happened to him.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Alfredo in La traviata, Virginia Opera

"As Alfredo, tenor Rolando Sanz nails the personality of the smitten bon vivant...with a natural, compelling tone."

Boris in Kát'a Kabanová, Spoleto Festival USA

"Rolando Sanz brings a ringing tenor voice to Boris's shallow persona."

Alfredo in La traviata, Florentine Opera
