Reviews

Luigi / Il tabarro / Mid Wales Opera / 2021
“…with vocal virility, his ringing tones gloriously ardent.”
(Opera Today)

“…sung by Evans with almost excruciating ardour.”
(Wales Arts Review)


Ruggero / La rondine / West Green House Opera / 2021
“Robyn Lyn Evans reveals a brilliantly smooth and light sound as Ruggero…”
(MusicOMH)

“Evans adds powerful singing to well-measured acting in the part.”

Devereux / Roberto Devereux / Welsh National Opera / 2019
“Devereux was sung by Robyn Lyn Evans. It was revelatory. A young singer, with the virility and passion the part needs but also the high lyricism in the voice to carry off all the emotion and charm the character requires. It was one of the most exciting evenings I can recall in recent years of many, many performances.”
