DUKE BLUEBEARD
(Bartók: Bluebeard's Castle)
"Frank Blees is a more vulnerable than brutal Bluebeard. Almost with fear he observes his Judith when she, door after door, opens the castle of his heart."
(Radio NDR 1, 24.01.2009)


DUKE BLUEBEARD
(Bartók: Bluebeard's Castle)
"Frank Blees as Bluebeard and Sarah van der Kemp are ideal interpreters of their parts, they were brilliant in this demonic one-act opera. Frank Blees's dark bass-baritone reminds of a gloomy dungeon that slowly opens. Blees becomes more and more impassionate and finally is deeply moving in his ardent warnings."
(Bert Lingnau, Kulturkalender/Unterwegs in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, März 2009)


IL GIIUDICE ADAM
(Testi: La Brocca Rotta)
"This Adam with his shrewd cleverness is a bit reminiscent of Verdis Falstaff; and FRANK BLEES, bald-headed, damaged and in underwear, being a pathetic sight in the beginning, plays this coulourful role with vehemence and, moreover, sings very convincingly with his sonorous and resonant bass."
(Orpheus, 11./12. 2007)


WASSERMANN
(Dvorák: Rusalka)
"Very impressive is the costume of the old Water Sprite, played by the German Frank Blees, who sings his part with splendour."
(TheaterCentraal.nl, Celia Noordegraaf)


WASSERMANN
(Dvorák: Rusalka)
"Frank Blees (Water Sprite) sings from the edges of his flippers."
(De Telegraaf, Thiemo Wind)


DOKTOR DULCAMARA
(Donizetti: Der Liebestrank)
"A pronounced, cunning arch-comedien with an awsome stage-presence ist the Doctor Dulcamara of Frank Blees."
(Trierischer Volksfreund)


ELIAS
(Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Elias)
"Frank Blees sang with devotion and presented impressive noble sounds. He showed what in general is called "mature": the voice. In any way he demonstrated such an understanding of this part, that one can assume he has studied Mendelssohn's libretto and maybe also the First Book of Kings from the Old Testament. There one finds martial attributes, which present this pious believer in a way the composer may have imagined: vigorous, fervent, wrathful and frowning."
(Remscheider Generalanzeiger, 12 January 2007)


WOTAN
(Wagner: Das Rheingold)
"This young singer owns a well placed and nice sounding bass voice, he is blessed with great musicality, and has the persuative power to provide this Father of Gods with all necessary authority."
(Orpheus, 10/2001)
