Review: “Il Trovatore” Pulls Out All the Stops at L.A. Opera
“The role of Trovatore (Manrico) is brought to life by the gifted tenor Limmie Pulliam (Othello, Pagliacci). His tone was remarkably broad and powerful, conveying Manrico’s urgency and desperation. In his two most tender love songs, Pulliam expressed his torment of being torn between romantic passion and family duty flawlessly.”

LA Opera reopens with Il trovatore, and the music soars
“Musically, the night was a raging success. Debuting in the role of Manrico, Limmie Pulliam’s silky tenor was exquisite in the pianissimo passages and resonant in the character’s impassioned arias.“

Review: L.A. Opera ends its pandemic hiatus with a triumphant, season-opening ‘Il Trovatore’
“Limmie Pulliam’s Manrico is yang to her yin — physically, vocally and theatrically. He has a healthy, focused, ringing tenor that penetrates space but is never vulgar… If Pulliam required noticeable effort to sing softly, that effort had as touching an effect as the effort Yu needed to sound heroic.”
