​​"...Ben Thapa was a resolute figure of vocal authority..."

Lucio Silla (Aufidio), Buxton Festival

(Mark Ronan)

“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”

Magic Flute, Regents Opera
(Opera / Margaret Davies) 

"...notable in the small role of Aufidio, Silla's confident, and he made Aufidio's recitative vivid..."

(Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill)

“Ben Thapa made a vivid Tito, anxious from the word go and really bringing out the character's dilemma. His big Act Two aria was finely done, and there was little sense of this being a last-minute stand in, the performance was confident and fully formed”

La Clemenza di Tito, Chelsea Opera Group


"A notable Melot" 

Tristan und Isolde, Longborough

(The Stage)

​​​Ben Thapa - Tenor

“...vivid performances from those above and from Paul Nilon (Scribbler), Stephanie Corley (Emma) and Ben
Thapa (Kuzka)”

Khovanschina, Birmingham Opera Company
(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."

Katya Kabanova, Scottish Opera on Tour
(Opera Britannia / Antony Lias) 


"Ben Thapa gave strong support as Arbace"

Idomeneo, Buxton Festival

(Planet Hugill)

“As Siegmund, Ben Thapa displayed a Kaufmann-like rounded beauty of tone with Sieglinde, magnificent power upon his releasing of the sword Nothung and transcendent humanity during his duet with Brünnhilde. Thapa’s voice is a strikingly versatile instrument. Effortlessly powerful when required, in ‘Winterstürme’ – one of the evening’s many highlights – it also startled with the kind of plangency ideal for a Die schöne Müllerin.”
