Reviews

Jacob Phillips è invece dotato di voce ampia e timbrata. Riesce a imporsi senza problemi sull’orchestra e ci regala un bel personaggio, a fuoco sia vocalmente che scenicamente.

Jacob Phillips ist ein exzellenter Graf mit großer Ausstrahlung und Prachtstimmer."

Fra i migliori della serata il Conte deciso e vocalmente convincente di Jacob Phillips, che sfoggia voce piena e sonora e un fraseggio nobile e curato.

Jacob Phillips als Conte faszinierte durch seine edle, virile Baritonstimme und Bühnenpräsenz

Jacob Philipps est en revanche un superbe Schaunard très idiomatique.

But here, in the great OHP tradition, comes another interesting new talent: baritone Jacob Phillips in the small role of Marullo. He is still completing his studies, and sang in Carmen last year. Fingers crossed we will hear more of this fine voice from a strong stage presence.

Jacob Phillips’ Marullo is a malevolent presence, with a baritone as precise and neatly-clipped as his mustache (he is a young singer who continues to impress, and I look forward to hearing him debut in a more substantive Verdi role.)

Smaller roles as.. Marullo (Jacob Phillips) are excellently filled in an evening that adds up to the most memorable of recent Rigolettos.

Jacob Phillips makes a strong mark as Marullo.

'Real quality singing came from.. baritone Jacob Phillips, as an impressively forthright Zuniga'

Bachtrack - Stephen Pritchard 

Opera Holland Park  - Carmen 2022

'There is strong singing too from fellow baritone Jacob Phillips as upright Zuniga.'

'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.'

ARTMUSELONDON - Karine Hetherington

Opera Holland Park - Le nozze di Figaro 2021

Jacob Phillips's Nick cast a literal shadow over the lives of all. Dressed in a natty red-and-black checked suit, Phillips gave a standout performance, his generous. dark-tones baritone swelling with unctuousness and dangerous, calculating charisma. 

Opera Magazine - Claire Seymour

Royal Academy Opera - The Rake's Progress 2022 

'Jacob Phillips brought a less bullish, more lithe, swagger to the role of Zuniga both vocally and physically, in a refreshing change to the usual characterization.'

Operawire - Benjamin Poore 

Opera Holland Park - Carmen 2022

'This was a terrific ensemble performance, both kaleidoscopic and cohesive. The confidence characterisation of Jacob Phillips (Wig Master) impressed..'
