Britten: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Oberon)

Nevill Holt Opera (June 2019)

Their king and queen, Timothy Morgan and Daisy Brown, bring ethereal sound and neo-Elizabethan ornamentation to their new-romantic looks.

Hugh Canning, The Times

[Morgan] sang “I know a bank” with alluring soft charm.

Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph

exceptional standouts from Timothy Morgan’s lucid Oberon.

George Hall, The Stage

Special mention should also be made of local Leicestershire singer Timothy Morgan, whose pleasing countertenor is given many opportunities to shine in the role of Oberon.

2019 Ferrier Awards

Finalist (April 2019)

Very bravely, countertenor Tim Morgan started things off with an unaccompanied folk ballad, ‘I will give my love an apple’…he sang it with steely purity of tone and huge conviction … complete composure to sing Handel’s ‘O Lord, whose mercies numberless’ from Saul (he’d given Iestyn a run for his money). This was beautiful singing, the pianissimo perfectly judged in the Wigmore’s hallowed hall, legato lines singularly placed and vibrato controlled. He communicated well and looked good in a dark suit…
