Notes & Reviews:

"John Tomlinson is one of the finest singing actors on the opera scene today. He is unsurpassed in Wagner, but here he dispays his versatility and his exemplary diction in a highly eclectic programme of arias in English ranging from Handel and Mozart to Offenbach and G&S...In Russian arias by Mussorgsky, Borodin and Dargomizhsky, he is equally impressive, and most of all in the two Verdi items..." ***** -Osborne, BBC
