Pangloss/Candide - Royal Opera, Stockholm 2019

Dessutom har man en engelsman i rollen som Pangloss, Ragotski och Martin – barytonen Jeremy Carpenter, även han briljerar. Diktionen är överlag strålande. 
Gunilla Brodrej,  Expressen

Jeremy Carpenter in his various disguises is also topnotch.
Göran Forsling, Seen and Heard International

Schauspieler/Der Ferne Klang - Royal Opera, Stockholm

As the Actor, baritone Jeremy Carpenter sang with elegance

Sebastian Turgeon, Operawire

Marquis de la Force/Dialoques des Carmelites - Royal Opera, Stockholm

En Marquis de la Force, Jeremy Carpenter incarne aimablement un père indolent par une gestique naturelle, chantant avec un baryton lyrique.

Andreas Wahlberg, Olyrix

Le Marquis de la Force de Jeremy Carpenter est scolaire et banal

Laurent Vilarem, Opera Online

Danilo Danilowitch/Glada Änkan - Royal Opera, Stockholm

Jeremy Carpenter’s high baritone is both seductively smooth and spitefully venomous.

Göran Forslin, Seen and Heard International

Chou Enlai/Nixon in China - Royal Opera, Stockholm

Ett mjukt tonfall som har sin kinesiska motsvarighet i Jeremy Carpenters elegiskt samvetsfulle Chou En-Lai som också får sista ordet till en mytiskt vibrerande cellostämma: ”Hur mycket av det vi gjorde var av godo?

Martin Nyström, Dagens Nyheter.

Den som får sista ordet är Jeremy Carpenters stilfullt melankoliske premiärminister Chou En-lai, som undrar om inte allt är på väg utom räddning.

Erik Wallrup, Svenska Dagbladet.

Jeremy Carpenter is a noble, philosophic Chou En-lai,

Göran Forsling, Seen and heard international.

While all the main singers showed attractive voices with good characterisation, the principal negative of the performance was that they virtually all struggled to make themselves heard above the orchestra, with the notable exception of Jeremy Carpenter as Chou En-Lai, whose warm baritone was strong enough to be always audible above the wash.

David Karlin, Bachtrack

Germont/La Traviata - Folkoperan, Stockholm

Germont sjungs innerligt och obehagligt styrande av Jeremy Carpenter - klok tolkning i både gester och röst.

Per Feltzin, Sverigesradio.

 

Jeremy Carpenter som pappa Germont är imponerande, full av pondus och medkänsla.

Bo Löfvendahl, Svenska Dagbladet.

 

Jeremy Carpenter gör en stor insats med sin baryton som Germont. Här finns svärtan, sorgen och auktoriteten i en sällsamt vacker kombination.

Claes Wahlin, Aftonbladet.

 

Men allra mest jublar publiken åt Jeremy Carpenter, den engelske barytonen .......... Hans insats är mästerlig, hans röst är varm och fängslande.

Patick Uhlmann, Eskilstuna-kurriren

 

Förtätat blev det när Jeremy Carpenter gjorde entré. Hans baryton är lugn, varm och fokuserad. På så vis fick hans Germond stå för det mera beständiga, det stilla reflekterande i tillvaron.

Michael Bruze, Norrköpings Tidningar

The Protector/Written on Skin . Royal Opera, Stockholm

"Jeremy Carpenter is also terrific as The Protector, warmer in his cruelty and agony than most portrayals."
Guy Damman, Financial Times.

 

"Jeremy Carpenter's baritone switches between elated megalomania and absolute darkness."
Gunilla Brodrej, Expressen.

 

Med mjuk tonbildning gör Jeremy Carpenter ett enastående nyanserat porträtt av Protektorn, vars undertryckta sidor då och då sticker upp ovanför ytan.

Bo Löfvendahl, Svenska Dagbladet.

 

"Jeremy Carpenter as her malignant husband has authority and power."
Claes Wahlin, Aftonbladet .

 

"The baritone Jeremy Carpenter also fills the role as Protector with the entire register from fury to emptiness."

Martin Nyström, Dagens Nyheter.

'Jeremy Carpenter, making his Royal Opera debut, sang a fine Robert Cecil, his advice to the queen that ‘the art of government is in procrastination and in silence and delay’ raising a laugh'.  Opera Brittanica.

                                                                                                                                                   

'Jeremy Carpenter’s Lord Cecil is the emblem of gravity and stateliness; the guarded confidence between the Queen and her ‘trusty elf’ is complemented by a Machiavellian manipulation, most particularly in the Act 3 ‘Cecil’s Warning’, as the influential Lord cunningly persuades his monarch to repel her former devotee'.  Opera Today.

Belcore/L’elisir d’amore Nantes/Angers Opera 

'The Englishman Jeremy Carpenter though steals the show from his ​​two male partners. Possessing exactly the physical attributes - a handsome hunk with impressive stature and carnivorous smile - he delivers an interpretation full of panache.  With his macho allure he delivers a real ease in vocalizations an elegance in phrasing and a vibrant timbre'.   ConcertoNet.com.

                                                                                                                                                 

Carlo Gérard/Andrea Chénier - Royal Opera, Stockholm

Conte Almaviva/Mozarts Marriage of Figaro, St Gallen 

'Why this performance was an enthralling success was not only the acting ability,but mostly the quality of singing and the thorough learning of the performers. Jeremy Carpenters performance in the role of Count Almaviva was worthy of any big opera house. This young, well sounding, free resonating and well-focussed Baritone voice is a discovery and compares favourably with any great Mozart  Baritone'.   Markus Horsch, Südkurier.
