Macduff / Macbeth / Mid Wales Opera / 2024
“…Robyn Lyn Evans, a wonderfully Italianate tenor, outstanding in Macduff’s big aria…”
(Opera Now)

“Macduff’s aria lamenting the death of his wife and children is one of the most affecting and Robyn Lyn Evans sang it with heartfelt expressive tone.”

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)

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.”
