FEATURED REVIEWS

“Stephen Chaundy was the vocally glamorous Paris ...”


Michael Tippett "King Priam", Brighton Festival  

Tim Ashley, The Guardian 29th May 2012.

“Auch mit Stephen Chaundy hat man den richtigen Interpreten für die Hauptrolle gefunden, der den Candide als durchaus ernsten und doch den Freuden des Lebens nicht abgeneigten Weltenbummler charakterisierte und auch gesanglich viel Leidenschaft und tenoralen Schmelz versprühte.”


Leonard Bernstein "Candide"  Volksoper

Michael Wruss, Oberösterreichische Nachrichten

24th January 2012.

"Der Tenor Stephen Chaundy karikiert seinen Antagonisten Robespierre nicht, gibt ihm aber einen umso erschreckenderen Fanatismus in Stimme und Blick." 

 

The tenor Stephen Chaundy does not caricature his (Danton’s) antagonist Robespierre, but gives him a fanaticism both vocally and in his gaze which is all the more frightening.
