Scottish Opera, Macbeth, 2014

 

Faulkner’s bass is rich and smooth and Banquo’s reappearance after his murder is a genuine coup, coming as a door falls flat onto the stage with a huge thump.

- Kevin Holdsworth, Opera Britania

Opera Frankfurt, Die Passagierin 2015

 

Sonores Bass-Material, das Lust auf mehr machte, brachte der junge Thomas Faulkner für den Passagier mit.

- Der Oper Freund

Meistersänger Halle, Nürnberg, Messiah, 2015

 

Vokale Höhepunkte hört man vom Bassisten Thomas Faulkner, vor allem in der klangmächtig aufgezogenen Arie „Warum entbrennen die Heiden und toben im Zorne".

- Nürnberger Zeitung

Der Rosenkavalier, Oper Frankfurt 2016

 

Particulary notable...Thomas Faulkner as Polizeikommissär. The young Brit has a beautiful toned Bass-baritone, and is captivating with his exemplary diction. Hopefully he will shortly be taken into the house ensemble, where one would very much like to hear him in larger roles.

- Der Operfreund


Frankfurt - Xerxes - Elviro - 2016/17

Gerne mehr gehört hätte man von Thomas Faulkners wunderbar sonor und volltönend singendem Passagier.

- Ludwig Steinbach, 22.5.2016, Der OpernfreundRead the article

Und Kiwahn Sims dunkelherber Silva, aber auch Thomas Faulkners Waffenträger Jago bestätigen, dass in der Oper Frankfurt auf starke Verdi-Stimmen Verlass ist.

- Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Ernani, Jan 2017

… Kihwan Sim als Silva überzeugte ebenso wie der jüngst erst vom Opernstudio ins Enseble gewechselte, jugendlich-prachtvolle Jago-Bass Thomas Faulkners.

- Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Ernani, Jan 2017

Thomas Faulkner gibt einen sängerisch starken und ausgesprochen clownesken Diener Elviro.

- EgotripRead the article

Thomas Faulkner beweist komödiantisches Talent und faziniert durch mühelose Leichtigkeit seines klangschönen Basses.

- O-Ton, Christiane Franke

Im komischen Fach darf… Thomas Faulkner als Diener Elviro brillieren. Seinen eleganten und wohltönend schlanken Baß weiß er wirkungsvoll einzubringen. Es ist ein Gewinn für das Opernhaus, daß er nun vom Opernstudio ins feste Ensemble gewechselt ist.

- Michael Demel, 10. Januar 2017, Der OpernfreundRead the article
