“The tenor Andrew Glover was mightily impressive, as Aurelio’s friend, Giovanni.”
PETER REED  THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

“Andrew Glover is an imposing Lysander with a high, pure tenor.”
OPERA BRITANNIA

“…several individual performances come over well, notably those of Andrew Glover and Quirijn de Lang, who make every word tell as two upper-class army officers…”
GEORGE HALL  THE GUARDIAN

“We have come to expect scintillating cameos from Andrew Glover on the opera stage. Suave and droll as the auctioneer Sellem, backed by the outraged cries of chorusing citizens, he made one wonder whether Stravinsky, like Kurt Weill, had a soft spot for the satires of Gilbert and Sullivan.”
NEW ZEALAND HERALD

“…Andrew Glover contributes a terrific cameo as Monsieur Triquet, Tatyana’s tutor. This young tenor has it all: accomplished stage skills, an expressive face and a pleasing, nimble singing voice…”
