Paul Appleby Press Reviews
"Paul Appleby, as Gomatz, revealed a promising tenor with a good deal of warmth and agility, not to mention an unfailingly elegant sense of style."
Tim Smith, Opera News
"“As Gomatz, tenor Paul Appleby give a strong characterization. Appleby was at his best in the spoken melodrama from Act I, in which he bemoans his bitter fate at seeing Zaide interred in the Sultan's harem. His is a fine tenor voice. Sadly, the extant musical numbers for his character tended toward the surface and the silly, thus not allowing Appleby to show us the depth or range one suspects he has.”"
