“...vivid performances from those above and from Paul Nilon (Scribbler), Stephanie Corley (Emma) and Ben
Khovanschina, Birmingham Opera Company
(The Times / Anna Picard)
"...Ben Thapa was a resolute figure of vocal authority..."
Lucio Silla (Aufidio), Buxton Festival
"...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
“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)
"Ben Thapa gave strong support as Arbace"
Idomeneo, Buxton Festival
"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 - Tenor
"A notable Melot"
Tristan und Isolde, Longborough
