CRITICAL ACCLAIM


"... vocal mastery..." – J-Wire


Bluebeard’s Castle– "the Premiere at the Opera House last night was met with a rapturous response by a thrilled audience. Why? Very simply the chance to hear Australia’s own great bass-baritone, Daniel Sumegi in a role that truly displays his vocal mastery. It is worth the admission price on its own. There is such pleasure in listening to a voice such as his, that’s somewhat under-represented in the main works in this field. I look forward to hearing this magnificent voice again soon."

__________


"... he delivered the famous Toreador Song with gusto..." – BachTrack


Carmen – "Escamillo was taken on by bass-baritone Daniel Sumegi, who appeared in garb suggesting a cross between Tom Jones and an ageing Elvis. Playing the character as a rockstar with fawning groupies, he delivered the famous Toreador Song with gusto.”

__________


"... authoritative bass Daniel Sumegi..." – Australian Arts Review


Lohengrin – " Supporting roles are filled equally as outstandingly, with large, authoritative bass Daniel Sumegi in a balancing act of diplomacy and command as King Heinrich.”

__________


"... thrilling vocal turns as Jochanaan..." – Sidney Morning Herald


Salome – “With its cavernous auditorium, The Palais is the closest thing Victoria has to a grand European opera house. The acoustic is no challenge for Australian bass-baritone Daniel Sumegi. . . who give thrilling vocal turns as Jochanaan.”

__________


"... excellently played by Daniel Sumegi..." – Arts Hub


Sweeney Todd – “Arrogant, evil Judge Turpin, who is hiding dark secrets, was excellently played by Daniel Sumegi. Turpin and Todd’s duet ‘Pretty Women’ is another highlight of the show.”

__________


"... mighty voice and his deft acting..." – Seattle Times


Der fliegenda Holländer – “As Senta’s father, the sea captain Daland, Daniel Sumegi creates a memorable portrayal with his mighty voice and his deft acting.”
