Adrian Dwyer “bold” and “bright” in Opera North’s Swanhunter

27 April 2015

Adrian Dwyer has triumphed in Opera North’s production of Jonathan Dove’s Swanhunter, which opened recently at the Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.  Singing the role of Lemminkäinen, Adrian’s performance has been described as “bold”, “sterling” and one of “sturdy presence”.  Here is a selection of some of the excellent reviews which Adrian has received:

“Adrian Dwyer makes a bold Lemminkäinen.” – George Hall, The Guardian

“The singers, though, are adept at their multifunctional roles, especially Adrian Dwyer’s sterling Lemminkäinen.” – Richard Fairman, Financial Times

“Adrian Dwyer, as the hero, gets nimbly round some richly ornamented vocal lines for high tenor.” – Michael Church, The Independent

“The most prominent role is that of Lemminkaïnen himself: Adrian Dwyer brought a fresh and clear tenor voice to the role, not afraid to open up on the high notes to bring the devil-may-care feel to proceedings.” – David Karlin, bachtrack.com

“Adrian Dwyer as the adventure-seeking and philandering young Lemminkäinen has a sturdy presence and a clarion edge to his bright tenor.” – Geoffrey Mogridge, Opera Britannia

“Adrian Dwyer was believably intrepid and full of youthful spring in the hands and voice.” – Colin Clarke, Seen and Heard

“Adrian Dwyer does sterling work in the title role.” – Mark Valencia, whatsonstage.com
