Duus, Simon - Bass-Baritone

  To Roster


Seneca (L’Incoronazione di Poppea), Copenhagen Musikteater, 2011
”It was the music, it was the characters, who captured us. For instance, Simon Duus as Seneca, the philosopher, who with an attitude as a Socrates accepts his death sentence. Simon Duus, a good-sized bass, was heard already in March in the same role in the Opera Academy’s excellent production of “L’Incoronazione di Poppea” at The Takkelloftet. His diction and his singing voice is like one. It is as splendid as it was to hear Ulrik Cold at his break-through in the role in 1966”
Gergers Dirkinck-Holmfeldt August 27th 2011
Leporello (Don Giovanni), Opera Hedeland, 2012
“The real sensation both vocally and dramatically”
Mogens H. Andersson, Operalogg
”A rare dramatic talent”
– Henrik Friis, Politiken
Domingo (Farinelli), Tivolis Koncertsal, 2013
“As a longhaired pirate with glittering rings on all fingers, bass-baritone Simon Duus shone both vocally and physically”,                                                                                        
– Christine Christiansen, Jyllandsposten
Verdi gala, DR Koncerthuset, 2013
“As a surprise from The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus, Simon Duus’ bass-baritone was a delicacy”
– Thomas Michelsen, Politiken
