"...notable in the small role of Aufidio, Silla's confident, and he made Aufidio's recitative vivid..."
(Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill)
"...Ben Thapa was a resolute figure of vocal authority..."
“...vivid performances from those above and from Paul Nilon (Scribbler), Stephanie Corley (Emma) and Ben Thapa (Kuzka)” (The Times / Anna Picard)
"Thapa as Kudryash was uniformly excellent. Delectably cheeky, with a bright and handsome tenor, you were witnessing a man living in the moment. His singing of Janácek's synthetic "folk song" was one of the highlights of the evening." (Opera Britannia / Antony Lias)
Ben Thapa - Tenor
“Ben Thapa as Tamino showed promise of a tenor that will mature to fit him for heavier roles and he was already colouring his singing expressively” (Opera / Margaret Davies)
"Ben Thapa sings Johnson's "Ch'ella mi creda" with feeling." (The Telegraph / Rupert Christiansen)
"A notable Melot"
