Duus, Simon - Bass-Baritone

  To Roster


Papageno (Die Zauberflöte), The Royal Danish Theatre
The entire cast was spectacular (…) Simon Duus as Papageno was absolutely hilarious and brought the show to a new level.
Copenhagen Post
Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro), The Royal Danish Theatre
The singing was always honourable and frequently much more than that. Simon Duus was a wonderfully vivid Figaro. He successfully mapped his character’s emotional journey from love to jealousy, as well as his ingenuity in running rings around the Conte. Indeed, I’ve never heard aprite un po’quegl’occhi sung with such violent jealousy before. His rustic yet handsome baritone was always sung off the text and he was a highly engaging stage presence.
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.

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.
