Jamez McCorkle (USA) flourishes and sets the foundation for excellence with Lensky’s aria from Tchaikovsky's 'Kuda, kuda…'

Mittelbayerische

Jamez McCorkle [was] particularly compelling: A giant of a man, which one would have the enthusiastic poet Lensky from Eugene Onegin hardly have expected. But he was very convincing, very moving precisely in this role and with the famous aria.

Nordbayern

Among the minor roles, the gem is Taupe - a sleepy opera prompter who wakes up after everybody is gone - sung by James McCorkle with perfectly understated comic charm.
