wagner DER FLIEGENDE HOLLÄNDER / komische oper, berlin

"Caspar Singh ist ein wunderbar lyrischer Steuermann, mit frischem Tenor, sauberen schlanken Spitzentönen und schönen Piani."

"Caspar Singh is a wonderfully lyrical Steuermann, with a fresh tenor, clean, slender top tones and beautiful piani."

Dr. Ingobert Waltenberger, Online Merker (November 2022)

verdi FALSTAFF / komische oper, berlin

"Entzückend soubrettig die Nannetta von Penny Sofroniadou, und deren Liebster wird fein tenoriert vom langen Caspar Singh (hörenswert und einer der besten heute)."

"Penny Sofroniadou's Nannetta is delightfully sublime, and her lover is finely tenored by the tall Caspar Singh (well worth listening to and one of the best today)."

Schlatz, Opern- & Konzertkritik Berlin (November 2022)

"Das war neben Caspar Singh als Fenton das vokale Highlight des Abends. Singh kommt von der Bayerischen Staatsoper, wo er erst dem Opernstudio angehörte und seit 2020/21 dem Ensemble, 2022 wechselte er an die Komische Oper. Er ist also ebenfalls neu, sieht mit seinen zwei Metern in der Kostümierung von Katrin Lea Tag aus, wie der junge Christopher Reeve in „Deathtrap“. Also perfekt. Und er singt sein Sonett mit berückendem Schmelz, auch wenn Nánási für ihn keine lyrischen Bögen spannt, auf denen dieser „canto estasiato“ zum Schmachtereignis wird. Aber da steckt offensichtlich viel Zukunftspotenzial drin."

"Along with Caspar Singh as Fenton, that was the vocal highlight of the evening. Singh comes from the Bavarian State Opera, where he first belonged to the opera studio and since 2020/21 to the ensemble, in 2022 he switched to the Komische Oper. So he's new too, at two meters tall in Katrin Lea Tag's costume, he looks like a young Christopher Reeve in Deathtrap. So perfect. And he sings his sonnet with enchanting mellowness, even if Nánási doesn't span any lyrical arcs
