    • From the House of the Dead
      Opera North

      But the opera’s great heart beats strongly throughout, animated by an impressive ensemble boldly led by Robert Hayward (Shishkov), Jeffrey Lloyd Roberts (Luka), Alan Oke (Skuratov) and Richard Morrison (a last-minute substitute for Roderick Williams as Goryanchikov), all of whom sharply etched their characters and their harrowing back stories. Diction was excellent throughout.

      The central role itself was finely presented at this performance by Richard Morrison…
      George Hall, The Stage
      Another all-too-brief glimmer of the hope of humanity can be seen in the relationship that blossomed between Goryanchikov and Alyeya. Played by Richard Morrison (standing in for an unfortunately indisposed Roderick Williams) and Claire Wild, their vocal dexterity and emotional intelligence served as a welcome break from the coarseness of the other prisoners. The smooth clarity of Morrison’s voice elegantly portrayed the father-like quality needed for his interaction with Alyeya.

    • Tom Jones
      Naxos

      Tom's role is very well taken by Richard Morrison, tonally focused in his songs, including 'A Foundling Boy', one of the bonuses. The booklet lists Germont, Enrico and Don Giovanni among his operatic repertoire, so one will expect the strong tone, with which comes an easy top. He produces a winning performance.
      International Record Review
      The baritone, Richard Morrison, delights in the title role. He displays a gallant, controlled voice with a robust middle, virile and in dominant in performance.
      Das Opernglas
      “Richard Morrison as Tom manages to provide that carefree charisma needed to attract attention and sings well with clear diction in ‘West Country lad’.
