Sweeney Todd – Bergen

“Tenor Samuel Boden sang as sweetly as the birds admired by his romantic interest Johanna”
Opera Now, January 2020

“As an opera critic with a certain orientation towards pre-modern times, I was excited to hear the young British tenor Samuel Boden in the role of the young and charming sailor Anthony Hope. Boden is one of today’s finest exponents of the wonderfully peculiar voice type, haute contre , a very bright tenor voice found mostly within French 18th-century opera. It was fun then to hear Boden sing in a 1979 musical with the greatest of course.”
