Adrian Dwyer an "exceptionally good" Astrologer in Theater Magdeburg's The Golden Cockerel

1 November 2022

We are thrilled to share some wonderful reviews of Adrian Dwyer's performance in The Golden Cockerel/Der goldene Hahn. Theater Magdeburg's production of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's final opera has been called "musically and scenically brilliant" (Ute Grundmann, Opern News) and runs through to the 27th December, 2022.

"Tenor Adrian Dwyer convinces with his incredibly high, bright, and very clear tenor as well as with his lively, multifaceted playing, which leaves no doubts about his pride in his creation of the cockerel, his desire of the tsarina or his rage over Dodon."

Birgit Kleinfeld, Operngestalten

"...finally, Adrian Dwyer as the Astrologer, who delivers the almost painfully high tenor part without any grating, preserves the mystery inherent in the composition of the character, and acts with almost dance-like agility."
Andreas Falentin, Die Deutsche Bühne

"The astrologer, sung by Adrian Dwyer, is cast in this piece with an extremely high tenor. This is the voice range Rimsky-Korsakov called "tenore altino," and Dwyer does an exceptionally good job despite these demands."
Aspekt Magazin

There are three more opportunities to see Dwyer in The Golden Cockerel at Theater Magdeburg; find out more here. Dwyer can also be seen as Mime in Longborough Festival Opera's Siegfried on OperaVision until the 19th of February 2023.
