Samuel Pantcheff - Masino

Blythe-Buesst Opera Prize (2010)

Maxwell Davies's Eight Songs for a Mad King was frankly stunning. Here we had a piece which was designed to be music theatre and Pantcheff's incarnation of the protagonist was mesmerising. Marchment had created a sequence of dramatically credible scenes, much involving a bath! But it was Pantcheff's spot-on projection of the variability of madness, combined with his incredible vocal histrionics. The vocal part, with its combination of baritone and alto registers with extended vocal effects, was written for the South African actor Roy Hart and was tailored to his particular skills. This means that each soloist must find his own way through the part, this Pantcheff did confidently and dazzlingly. - PLANET HUGILL (2014)

Samuel Pantcheff is excellent as the mentally ill officer as he struts across the stage in his regal garments singing to a "bird", thinking it is a beautiful woman. - CAROLIN KOPPLIN (2014)

Samuel Pantcheff puts in a startling, full-force performance as the Mad King. His perfectly controlled voice slides from growls to screeches, screams and yelps as he prances around a bathtub in a pool of white feathers. - TIM BANO (2014)

Samuel Pantcheff, playing a shell-shocked soldier who believes he is King George, delivered a bravura rendition of Peter Maxwell Davies' s songs, full of human pity, humour and violence, and (in everyone's favourite bit) grabbing and smashing one of the band's violins. Nice one! ***** - OPERA NOW (2014)

Samuel Pantcheff, tall and English-handsome, gave a bluff, consistently well-acted Guglielmo, with focussed, unaffected singing to match. - OPERA MAGAZINE (2014)
