Richard Leech press reviews

"A WORLD-STAR IS BORN!" "An operatic event of the first order has created a major stir on the Berlin cultural scene. 'The premiere of Les Huguenots was a sensational success and a great share of this was due to lyric tenor Richard Leech, the great discovery of the season. The effect of his performance, in this, his European debut, cannot be overestimated." - Volker Gerth, Bild (Berlin), May 11, 1987

"Les Huguenots stands or falls with the tenor who sings Raoul de Nangis, and it was commonly assumed that there were none around. Ten minutes into the opera we found out there was! Richard Leech delivered "Plus blanche que la blanche hermine" with such tender bravura that the performance simply stopped dead for minutes of applause, repeated after each of his solos, and tumultuous at the final curtain." - James Helme Sutcliffe, International Herald Tribune, May, 30-31, 1987
