Theater Plauen/Zwickau - Tannhäuser - WOLFRAM
Hinrich Horn as their noble companion, who abandons the old dogmas due to Elisabeth and Tannhäuser. His aria “Song of the Evening Star” was truly magnificent. The actors’ class, including the clearly singing choir might have astonished many a doubter. It makes a visit of Zwickau well worthwhile.
Remarkable Hinrich Horn as melodious Wolfram. He has a warm and rich, but also very flexible, lyrical baritone voice, that has the potential to perform with various creating possibilities and tone colors.
Theater Plauen/Zwicau- Il barieri di Siviglia - BARTOLO
The best vocal impression was left by baritone Hinrich Horn (Bartolo), whose voice has not only an impressive dynamic but also a dark, metal timbre, which perfectly suits the Italian repertoire.
