"Not only does Simon O'Neill possess one of the most exciting tenor voices of his generation but he also knows how to manage it: with his vocal energy and the charismatic luminous power of his sound, this youthful heldentenor unrelentingly impels not only his stage partner [but also the conductor and orchestra.] ... O'Neill shows that he is able to do what only the greatest can."  (SuddeutscheZeitung)
