Critical Acclaim

As Rigoletto in Rigoletto, Pellegrini Opera:

 

British-Canadian baritone Jeffrey Carl sang the title role. The only real “name” on the program, Carl is a legitimate Verdi baritone, with plenty of ring in his tone, and capable of enormous sustained power in the highest part of his range. He gave a nuanced portrayal of Verdi’s bitter, hunchbacked buffoon…His Pari siamo was a tour de force, swirling with powerful subcurrents of contempt, self-loathing and despair.

- Natasha Gauthier, Ottawa Citizen


As Monforte in I Vespri Siciliani Opera in Concert, Toronto:

 

Jeffrey Carl as Monforte,...proved to be adept at Verdi’s difficult baritone high notes and coloratura, showing an attractive, expressive voice.

- Paula Citron, CFMX

 

 

As Nick Shadow in The Rake’s Progress, Teatro Communale di Modena:

 

The company of singers was totally engaging, including…the outstanding Jeffrey Carl

 

Without hesitation! It has been a long time since we have attended a performance so convincing, intelligent, ironic and meritoriously profound, as Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress which opened the opera season on Friday, and which provoked our total, indeed terrified, admiration. At a comparable height at the opening, better even that the rosiest of expectations, [were] all the company of singers…the superb Shadow of Jeffrey Carl, diabolical but with an exceptional musical command

 - Gazzetta di Modena

 

 

Belshazzar’s Feast – Amadeus Choir, Toronto, Nova Amadeus Orchestra Rome:

 

It’s to the great credit of the guest soloist, British-Canadian opera singer, Jeffrey Carl, that he brought such fiery conviction to his delivery. Although Feast is a standard part of Carl’s repertoire, he sang his baritone part with such an intensity that was something to behold as well as hear.

- Eric McMillan

 

 

As Scarpia in Tosca, Holland Park (London):

 

[N]obody could compete with the evil presence of Jeffrey Carl as Scarpia. This role was a gift for Carl, who has a great future ahead of him playing the bad guy---when he glares at the audience even the back row can see the whites of his eyes. James Naughtie asserted in his programme note that Scarpia's first entrance is ‘the moment at which the atmosphere of Tosca is established’, and in this production at least it was true; Carl’s Scarpia was at the same time terrifying and hugely entertaining, without over-simplifying the character.

- Erica Jeal, Opera

 

The Holland Park company has a star Scarpia in Jeffrey Carl, who took an iron grip on the performance. With his brown leather jacket and hair slicked back into a tiny pigtail, he is a natural casting for Puccini’s Bad Cop. His firm baritone has enough rasp to cut through the evening air under Holland Park’s canvas.

- John Higgins, The Times

 

 

As Lusignano in Caterina Cornaro, Cyprus:

 

Jeffrey Carl as Lusignano, some beautiful singing, in particular “Ah non turbarti”...

- Sylvia Goodman, Opera Now

 

 

Opera in Concert Canadian Music Gala, Toronto:

 

It was a good opportunity to hear baritone Jeffrey Carl, who is making a splash in Europe. He has a strong, manly voice and is an excellent interpreter, as shown by his stirring arias from both Harry Somer’s Louis Riel and James Rolfe’s Beatrice Chancey.

- Paula Citron, CFMX
