I have known for some years that Paul Carey Jones is the next big thing in British Wotans, but even so I could not have expected him to be as good as this. He slipped into the role as effortlessly and perfectly as though he'd been playing it all his life, singing with wonderful freedom and authority, bringing out the god's petty vanity and arrogance and foreshadowing his future tragedy. The audience didn't need to be told that he ruled the world: we knew. My mouth waters at the prospect of seeing him in Longborough's newly developing cycle. - Katie Barnes, Wagner News
