Soundbites

Opernglas, January 1994 (C. Hoegl).

Translated by Ursula Turecek

“… Simon Keenlyside brought a Papageno onto the stage whose singing as well as acting are of an excellent quality. Keenlyside seems to be one of the few opera singers whose spoken dialogues are more than merely necessary insertions into the action…”
