PHILLIPS

JACOB

Baritone 

'Jacob Phillips’ Schicchi was at the center of the show, and demonstrated impeccable technique alongside impressive dramatic range. He’s slick and oily, with the hint of the playboy, and does Buoso’s voice to hilarious pantomime effect. He felt ruthless enough to defraud the dead, and charming enough to plead extenuating circumstances in the coda, bust of Dante in hand – a sharply-drawn and impressively crafted portrait.'

Jacob Phillips as the YA Count also impressed. The steadfastness in Philips’s beautiful rich baritone is still running through me today at my time of writing.
