Reviews & Press


Bembo L’Ercole amante

A tout seigneur, tout honneur : Yannick Debus campe un Ercole plein d’autorité. Verticalité, beau métal de la projection sont mis en valeur par le gras du timbre. Son ultime aria, celle de sa mort, est particulièrement réussie

Rihm - Jakob Lenz - Lenz

Yannick Debus, as Jakob Lenz, rises to the challenge of this difficult material. Debus was fantastic in the title role, his standing ovation well-earned. He brought deftness and complexity to both the spoken and sung parts of the role, whether clambering up and down towers of boxes or curled up in the foetal position, whether delivering the text in a broken whisper or hitting the high notes with aplomb. More importantly, perhaps, he makes you care about Lenz, unable to dismiss him as a madman as his contemporaries do. (There is a genuinely chilling moment in the final scene when the ghosts are screaming and no one but Lenz can hear them.) In the end, this remains the power of Jakob Lenz: to destabilise, to tug at the heartstrings, to leave you haunted.

Innsbrucker Festwochen - Ottone - Emireno

Alone among the singers, Yannick Debus, essaying the role of Emireno, delievered the most consistent performance of the evening. He has a strong stage presence and is a good actor.
