Gluck Orphée et Eurydice – Nederlandse Reisopera

“The tireless Samuel Boden was totally convincing as the shell-shocked Orpheus…with a honey-toned, easy upper range.”
Backtrack.com, 13 May 2015

“British tenor Samuel Boden is perfectly cast as Orpheus: not only does he have a wonderful timbre, but he also conveys with great conviction the changing moods of the title hero”
Translated from the Cultural Press Agency, 2 May 2015

“Particularly impressive is the performance of the protagonist, the English tenor Samuel Boden. Singing with someone on your shoulders, blindfolded, running laps around the stage like a rabbit disappearing into an open grave: few opera singers could offer the same.”
Translated from the Twentsche Courant Tubantia, May 2015

The Tempest – Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

“tenor Samuel Boden being outstanding”
The Independent, 26 January 2015

“Samuel Boden sang ‘Arise ye subterranean winds’ which [has] a slightly awkward melody, but with quite a virtuoso element which was beautifully realised by Boden.”

“Boden showing a mellifluous lyric tenor voice and excelling at the elaborate ornamentation of the songs”
