Nick Pritchard “in glorious voice” in ETO’s critically acclaimed Ulysses’ Homecoming

15 November 2016

Nick Pritchard has received terrific reviews for his ongoing performance of Telemachus in English Touring Opera’s new production of Monteverdi’s Ulysses’ Homecoming.  Already several weeks into its tour, the production has been very well received by the critics, all of whom are united in their glowing praise for Nick:

“The tenor Nick Pritchard was in glorious voice as their son Telemaco.” – Peter Reed, Opera Magazine

“But there are also outstanding performances from… Nick Pritchard’s forthright, attractive Telemachus.” – Tim Ashley, The Guardian

“Fine performance too from Nick Pritchard as the loyal son Telemachus.” – Richard Morrison, The Times

“The male voice trio with Telemachus (Nick Pritchard) is sublime.” – Michael Church, The Independent

“Nick Pritchard’s outstanding Telemachus.” – Alexandra Coghlan, The Spectator

“Nick Pritchard is vital as his son Telemachus.” – George Hall, The Stage

“Pritchard exhibits tremendous stamina and focus.” – Claire Seymour, Opera Today

As well as performing the role of Telemachus, Nick is singing that of Mercurio in ETO’s La Calisto, a performance which has been described as “beautifully sung” (The Spectator), one of “eloquent grace” (The Independent), and a “comic tour de force” (bachtrack).

Nick is also singing in ETO’s concert performances of Bach’s St John Passion.  With engagements of the same work this season with BBC NOW, Polyphony and the choir of New College, Oxford the following review is particularly welcome:

“Of the young voices among the soloists – all required to move around the stage a good deal – tenor Nick Pritchard was the most impressive: the clarity of words, his full but sweet tone, together with the ability to inject an urgency into his sound without undue effort, stood out.” – Rian Evans, The Guardian

Performances of all three productions run until early December.  To find out more and to book tickets please click here.
