Opéra national de Lorraine, Nancy - Beautiful Helen - Ajax I, December 2018

Christophe Poncet de Solages et Virgile Frannais, les deux Ajax, excellents tous deux, le premier écrasant l’autre de toute sa haute stature.

- Olyrix.com, José PonsRead the article

Les deux Ajax sont interprétés par Christophe Poncet de Solages et Virgile Frannais, le plus grand aux allures romaines écrasant le plus petit aux allures napoléonienne, y compris vocalement.

- Opera Online, Elodie Martinez Read the article


Serbian National Theatre - Juranic - The Last Flower of Summer

Having previously performed in Latin in Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex, the French tenor Christophe Poncet de Solages demonstrates his versatility here by singing in Croatian, and he seems to manage it exceptionally well.

- Opera JournalRead the article


Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France - Britten - St Nicholas

The girl singing the treble part was lovely, as was the tenor (Christophe Poncet de Solages) and the full choir striking.

- Instant EncoreRead the article


Grange Festival - Carmen - Remendado

Tiago Matos and Christophe Poncet de Solages caught the operetta elements of Le Dancaire and le Remendado but made it a characterful double act which never fell into hackneyed comedy. 

- Robert Hugill, Opera TodayRead the article

Marianne Croux, Filipa van Eck, Tiago Matos and Christophe Poncet de Solages make up a strong quartet as Frasquita, Mercédès, Le Dancaïre and Le Remendado respectively and together with Goldman introduce an excellent ensemble dynamic to ‘Nous avons en tête une affaire’.

- Sam Smith, Music OMH Read the article


Philharmonie de Paris - Elektra - Ein junger Diener

"Très remarqué par ailleurs, le jeune serviteur interprété par Christophe Poncet de Solages, voix de ténor percutante et bien placée" 

- José Pons, OlyrixRead the article
