*in preparation

Anthony Gregory's Quint, younger and handsomer than most, sounds disquietingly beautiful.

Guardian

Anthony Gregory's Quint is exquisitely sung, his villain all the more disturbing for his vocal beauty

Spectator

Audacious happiness radiated from Anthony Gregory... Gregory used his lovely, warm tenor to raise Florizel above the stereo-type of ‘disguised lover-prince’, showing him to be both gallant and headstrong.
