PHILADELPHIA, THE TALES OF HOFFMANN (Il Conte D'Hoffmann)

"But the evening belonged to bass Scott Conner, who was a menacing Lindorf, Copéllius, Dappertutto and Dr. Miracle with a masterful voice—pitch perfect, resonant, and robust.” - by Gale Martin

PHILADELPHIA, DON GIOVANNI

"Scott Conner just owns Don Giovanni’s lustful swagger and as offensive as that can be to contemporary audiences, his basso is big, assured and as sublimely lithe as Mozart’s music.”

- Alternatetakes2wordpress

 

"And as the Don, Scott Conner was a vivid actor with a solid bass voice.”

- Steven Cohen thebroadstreetreview

AIX EN PROVENCE, ROSSINI RECITAL:

"Scott Conner… what a beautiful voice and great musicality!  He is also an accomplished actor, both in voice and body language. His rendition of the different accents in the famous "Medaglie incomparabile" aria brought the house down. The parts where Don Profondo mocks the English, the French, the Germans, the Russians, etc., were so well done by Scott that we had the impression that he was singing in English, French, German, and Russian instead of Italian.  His acting range is very good too, since he interpreted arias that go from tragic to comedic to solemn... he acted the parts as if he was in the full operas.”  - Luiz Gazzola

"As the escaped prisoner Cesare Angelotti, bass Scott Conner sang with penetrating tone, and one could see this zealot’s passions in his burning eyes.” - Mercury News by Richard Scheinin

CLEVELAND OPERA, DON GIOVANNI:

"As in the opera’s original Prague and Vienna productions, bass Scott Conner doubles as Masetto and the Commendatore, lavishing both with sonorous command. (he’s a future Giovanni/Leporello.)" - by Donald Rosenberg, the Plain Dealer 

 

ZURICH OPERA, LES PÊCHEURS DE PERLES
