NODA: PARIS (Thomas Edmonds) The role of Paris is one of a young, debonair and personable young man. Thomas made an impression on his entrance, you have a strong clear light tenor voice when singing, there was an obvious attraction between you and Helene from the start and you had the other girls in the palm of your hand. When you appeared as Auger in the Swan Boat you looked a little like Ozzy Osbourne and I wondered whether you were going to break into singing some rock. Good interaction with the other, members of the cast you gave a confident and convincing performance, well done on a first class performance. (2019)
