Rave Reviews for Garsington Orfeo

“Ed Lyon’s traumatised yet gloriously lyrical Orfeo… His epic central performance culminates in a white-hot account of the virtuosic Possente Spirto”

The Times Review

“At the centre of it all was Ed Lyon’s Orfeo - lived, moved and sung with absolute conviction…It was magnificently paced, daringly pared back”

Opera Magazine

“Lyon has the full range of tone that the Monteverdi demands, from hushed through lustrous to dark, he decorates the text with formidable assurance”

Guardian Review

“He dominates not only the score but all the tensions, passions and tragedy that drive Orfeo’s story. His voice can switch from lyrical to sturdy in a heartbeat, and he negotiated Monteverdi’s elaborate notation with expressive ease.”
