Hugh Russell press reviews

Hugh Russell handled the more prominent baritone solos [of Faure's "Requiem"] with admirable restraint, scaling back the operatic heft he had exhibited in the concert's opening work, Mahler's anguished song cycle "Songs of a Wayfarer." —Indianapolis Star - January 30, 2010

In vocal terms, I thought the adorable Papageno, Hugh Russell, possessed the most complete combination of tone and technique in the cast... —Opera (UK)

Hugh Russell, singing and acting with easy assurance, does a bravura turn as Papageno. He is immensely entertaining as the bumpkin who is at once coward and braggart and whose appetites overrule his reason, but affecting, too, as the goodhearted, put-upon soul who yearns for love.. —The Victoria Times Colonist
