G&S legend Richard Suart still very much delivers the goods as a character singer, with some rougher edges all proving part of the charm

(Opera Wire August 2023)


There’s expert playing too from Richard Suart as Robin’s trusty retainer Old Adam Goodheart…

(The Stage August 2023)


Il Trittico

“such expert character singers as Julian Close, Louise Winter, Jim Cleverton and Richard Suart add to the brilliance of the entertainment.

(The Stage March 2023)


La Bohème

As ever, Glyndebourne’s tough full casting extends to the smallest parts, with a wonderfully characterised Benoit from Richard Suart, understated in his drunken comedy.

(BachTrack June 2022)

Richard Suart made a characteristically vivid turn as Benoit.

(Opera Wire June 2022)

Richard Suart, with the evening’s best Italian,  gave significance to the tiny part of Benoit.

(The Guardian June 2022)


The Gondoliers 

Patter song grandee Richard Suart provided the horseplay as The Duke

(BachTrack October 2021)


There’s vintage G&S bluster from veteran D’Oyly Carter Richard Suart as the spluttering Duke of Plaza-Toro…


The Mikado

Richard Suart, the veteran Lord High Executioner,  remains dependably colourful, returning with his ample toolkit of comic techniques, side-curls flailing and whole-body squirming. His “little list” of potential subjects for execution (those who’ll “not be missed”) now includes the Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox (“the rotund legalist”) and a certain “blond-haired populist”.

(The Stage November 2019).


The Marriage of Figaro

..the dishevelled gardener Antonio (a spot-on Richard Suart) clambers through the window at the end of Act 2.

(The Times June 2019).


What a joy too to have that dramatic stalwart Richard Suart as the elderly but beady-eyed Antonio - a gardener very much the equal of his superiors.

(Opera Today June 2019)


Having that great singing-actor Richard Suart as Antonio is luxury casting indeed, and he must have inspired his younger colleagues with his professionalism and humour.

(MusicOMH June 2019)


Other parts are excellent with the great Richard Suart playing Antonio, the gardener, as he should be played: a disgruntled but insistent servant.
