Paul's Tom Rakewell: "sung with colossal exuberance"

“The foolhardy Rakewell, sung with colossal exuberance by tenor Appleby, finds everything in his new life amazing” -translated from Place de l’Opera review of De Nationale Opera – Dutch National Opera’s The Rake’s Progress, full review here.

“Vocally the most difficult role to occupy is the anti-hero role of Tom: heavy, versatile and bulky but here, by the American tenor Paul Appleby, strongly sung and played, with exactly that degree of bravado that you need for his glorious escalation from good boy to wandering fool.” -translated from NRC review, full review here.
