Marc Molomot
REVIEWS

The Fairy Queen / Chicago Opera Theater

"The nucleus around which the supercharged particles of this Fairy Queen whirred was the Puck of tenor Marc Molomot…he conquered every challenge, singing attractively even when burdened with ridiculous stage business…he inhabited the rôle and his music from the heels of his cordovan loafers to his neon-pink hair. The tenor’s voicings of ‘Come, all ye songsters of the sky’ and the epithalamium ‘Thrice happy lovers’ were the performance’s finest instances of Purcellian vocal authenticity. Singing, dancing, joking, hectoring, reduced to his undershirt and jockey shorts, Molomot never succumbed to superfluity. In a production with much to offend, his multifaceted Puck indelibly made amends.”

Voix des Arts

 

The Fairy Queen / Long Beach Opera

“It is Puck who undergoes the most touching transformation. Moreover, the example of a brilliantly Falstaffian performance by French tenor Marc Molomot seems to lift the level of everyone around him.”

Los Angeles Times

 

Lord Cockburn: Fra Diavolo / Opéra Royal de Wallonie, Liège

“Marc Molomot and a hilarious Doris Lamprecht were excellent as the English couple, Lord Cockburn and Lady Pamela.”

La Libre

 

Arnalta: L’Incoronazione di Poppea / Opéra national de Lyon

“…an excellent actor-singer, capable of conveying derision as well as murmuring his lullaby to make it the emotional heart of the opera.”

Le Monde

 

Iro: Il ritorno d’Ulisse / Boston Baroque

“The rest of the cast was impeccable with standouts including (i.a) Marc Molomot’s loathsomely funny Iro.”

Boston Classical Review

 

“…played and sung to the hilt by Marc Molomot.”

The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

Iro: Il ritorno d’Ulisse / Linn CD

“…the parasitical glutton Iro, Marc Molomot, is characterised vividly…”

GRAMOPHONE

 

Don Basilio: Le nozze di Figaro / Villa Montalvo, Saratoga

“Marc Molomot was a hilarious, preposterous Don Basilio.”

San Francisco Chronicle

 

Pygmalion / On Site Opera

“In the title role Marc Molomot embodied a gently forlorn quality that matched his impeccably stylish singing.”

Opera News

 

McPhee: A House in Bali / Cal Performances

“… rapturously sung by Marc Molomot”

Wall Street Journal
