Turner "a force of nature" in Pacific Opera Victoria's "Fidelio"

10.18.2018

 

 

"Fortunata is well matched with tenor Brent Reilly Turner, who renders the imprisoned Florestan’s Act 2 aria (God! What darkness here!) with impressive passion and power across a range of feelings — despair, resignation, fortitude and longing. When husband and wife finally reunite late in Act 2 (O nameless joy!), we hear a veritable explosion of ardent lyricism." -Times-Colonist

"Tenor Brent Reilly Turner was a force of nature as Florestan. Remarkably strong and dynamic in vocal performance, his moment in prison of chasing a single beam of light across his cell was heartbreaking." -Schmopera

"Occupying space—and portraying emotion—came easier to tenor Brent Reilly Turner. As Florestan, he brought down the house with his Act II declaration of his trust in God, “Gott! Welch Dunkel hier!,” and his feverish vision of Leonore coming to save him, “In des Lebens Frühlingstagen.” Turner possesses a beautiful tone and heldentenor-like power, combined with an enviable ability to draw the audience in to feel both his pain and joy."
