Music inspired by Shakespeare: Purcell, Blow, Locke, Draghi – BBC Proms at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

“Samuel Boden’s tenor was shown to its best in the following aria, “I see she flies me”, where the more melancholic and austere moments let the creaminess of his voice take on a more reflective colour.” “The comedy that these two singers created, particularly Boden, spectacular in drag and crying “no Kissing at all” was terrific fun and dispatched with impressive speed and precision – Boden’s vocal inflections were highly enjoyable.” ★★★★☆ Backtrack, 14th August 2016
