“…the camp but caring nurse, Belize, here given a marvelous performance by countertenor Derek Lee Ragin, who also doubled convincingly as the hallucinatory Mister Lies and a Bronx bag-lady.”

Stephen Mudge, Opera News, February 2005 , vol 69 , no.8


Whatever he sings, Ragin sings with ardent musicality coupled with suppleness of technique and liquid phrasing. At times, he is the virtuoso, displaying his florid technique; but Ragin is also a singer of lyric breadth and remarkable warmth. That he can do both with such apparent ease is what makes him the artist he is.
