wagner DAS RHEINGOLD / la monnaie | de munt
"Le ténor Peter Hoare brille aussi, avec une interprétation très vive et théâtrale du forgeron. Les cris de désespoir de Mime sonnent forts et poignants, témoignant d’une maitrise vocale puissamment déployée."
"Tenor Peter Hoare also shines, with a very lively and theatrical interpretation of the blacksmith. Mime's cries of despair sound loud and poignant, testifying to a powerfully displayed vocal mastery."
Soline Heurtebise, Olyrix, 25 October 2023
"Doveroso citare anche, tra gli altri interpreti, il buon Mime del tenore inglese Peter Hoare."
"It is also worth mentioning, among other performers, the fine Mime by the English tenor Peter Hoare."
Alma Torretta, giornaledellamusica.it (26th October 2023)
Berg WOZZECK / aix-en-provence festival
"In McBurney’s conception, the figures of the “elite” oppressors are given no features of humanity—they are a caricature of evil that inspire no empathy. Under such direction, the characters of the Doctor and the Captain were played with mastery by Brindley Sherratt and Peter Hoare, respectively. Well acquainted with Berg’s musical ironies, they stressed as much as they could the strangeness of the text, a strangeness that needs to be visible for the play to work. I particularly cannot forget how Hoare sang “from South to North”—stressing the high note on “South” while leaving, with exquisite irony, the low note of “North” almost inaudible. A true sign of a performer unafraid to give himself to the text."
João Marcos Copertino, Operwire, 17 July 2023
"Le ténor anglais Peter Hoare est un Capitaine portant haut ses couleurs vocales, la voix infusant avec virtuosité, passant des griffures percutantes du grave au miel brûlant de l’aigu"
"English tenor Peter Hoare is a Captain wearing his vocal colors high, his voice infusing with virtuosity, passing from the hard-hitting scratches of the bass to the burning honey of the treble"
Florence Lethurgez, Olyrix, 13 July 2023
"Peter Hoare’s horrid Hauptmann and Brindley Sherratt’s sinister Doktor are exquisite villains."
Shirley Apthorp, Financial Times, 10 July 2023
"Hoare was even more effective than at Covent Garden, with a more percussive ring to the Captain’s manic outbursts."
David Karlin, Bachtrack, 8 July 2023
"Peter Hoare mezcló perfectamente el buen canto con el histrionismo que también le reserva Berg consiguiendo unos resultados excelentes."
"Peter Hoare perfectly blended good singing with the histrionics that Berg also offers, achieving excellent results."
Javier del Olivo, Platea Magazine, 8 July 2023
