Reviews:

Giovanna D'Arco - St. Gallen

Anooshah Golesorkhi was brilliant as Giovanna’s father, Giacomo that sets himself as opposition between the union of Giovanna and the King thus creating a typical Verdian triangular character setting found in many of his operas. Anooshah Golesorkhi has already had a career that has taken him through the world’s major opera houses and yet he has not reached the fame that is due and in line with his talent. He is the genuine and true Verdi Baritone at a time where such singers are becoming more difficult to find and are rare commodities. The St. Gallen premier benefited and profited not only from his round color and sound but also from the power and volume of his voice especially in the higher tessitura and top notes which is a must in such a role. The artist’s energetic and impulsive singing along with his generous “Al Fresco” mannerism and acting provided for a sensitive and dramatically growing and fulfilling presentation.
Das Opernglass - Th. Baltensweiler

Art-Tv.Ch Culture Television In The Network

Verdi, with the role of Giacomo, created another of his grateful father figures (Rigoletto, Boccanegra, Miller, Nabucco, Germont ...). The baritone, Anooshah Golesorkhi, is able to convey the contradictory feelings of this human being in a convincing manner, with a warm, strong voice, in a very differentiated way. On the one hand, he is the anxious father, on the other the religiously blinded zealot.
Welt der Oper

Il Tabarro

Anooshah Golesorkhi Sang the part of Giorgetta's husband, Michele, in a healthy and expressive baritone voice, imbuing the character with a mixture of Sorrow and Cynicism.
The Washington Post

Salome - Teatro Dell'opera Di Rome

...Anooshah Golesorkhi, the young American Baritone of Iranian origin, in his Rome debut, sang (Jokanaan) with soft legato, a beautiful and powerful voice, especially when he exhorted Salome to ask for forgiveness...
Il Messaggero - Alfredo Gasponi

...Bravo Anooshah Golesorkhi, a Jokanaan with soft legato phrasing, spowerful in his prophetic pronouncements...
Sera Italia

Rigoletto - Basel

Anooshah Golesorkhi’s singing and acting makes for a fascinating Rigoletto. Golesorkhi possesses a robust, powerful and steely baritone that personifies and co-exists with every degree of the tragedy of this figure (Rigoletto). While the direction in total, refuses and goes against a "Naturalistic" interpretation of the piece, Golesorkhi’s powerful facial expression and acting fully delivers every bit of the content of the opera. To see the sorrow, infirmity, affliction and defect of (Rigoletto) one does not need the humped figure, Golesorkhi delivers all of it with his gestures, voice and performance.
From Alexander Dick

La Gioconda

Anooshah Golesorkhi, as the villain Barnaba, made his mark with solid singing and true Verdi-baritone heft.
The New York Times - Anne Midgen

...evening's happiest surprise: the superb Barnaba of baritone Anooshah Golesorkhi, who savored every word he sang. He played the role with a precision and economy of gesture that many "legitimate" actors might envy.
Newsday (New York) - Marion Rosenberg

The most important and rewarding discovery of the night was the magnificent and imposing presence and voice of the Barnaba (La Gioconda) of Anooshah Golesorkhi. He is a mixture of clean action and a powerful and metamorphosing voice, which makes him, predestined for this role. His singing embodies a clean legato line, a constant abundance and profusion of beautiful sound as well as demonic intensity along with a sharp and clear understanding of the text which did not leave any wishes unfulfilled.
Orpheus

Nabucco

The rightful Babalonian king is now and for the first time arrived in Berlin. His name is Anooshah Golesorkhi and he is the very embodiment of the old testement tyrent: charismatic, unpredictable, a singing mad King George with his majestic robes and suspenders …Viva Verdi--he is once again living in Berlin.
Der Tagesspiegel Berlin

Of the greatest importance is the voice and the extraordinarily spellbinding performance of Anooshah Golesorkhi as Nabucco. His highly trained Italian Baritone possesses immense power and impressive dramatic content.
Orpheus (Berlin)
