Read on for press highlights from Mehta’s “suave but threatening” Tamerlano in Milan:

“…an extraordinarily thrilling portrait of the title role.” –Opernglas

“Tamerlano is portrayed by the American countertenor Bejun Mehta. I will not deny that he is one of the greatest singers in the world. Listening to him and seeing him on stage is a pleasure that should be frequently repeated. He always sings on the breath, with perfect intonation, a swift and precise voice, and impeccable style.”

{Tamerlano è interpretato dal contraltista americano Bejun Mehta. Non temo smentita presentandolo come uno dei più grandi cantanti al mondo. Ascoltarlo e vederlo in scena è un piacere che andrebbe ripetuto periodicamente. Ha cantato sempre sul fiato, con intonazione perfetta, messe di voce fulminee e precise, stile impeccabile.} –Opera Click

“… countertenor Bejun Mehta delivers a suave but threatening reading of Tamerlano in a piercing tone.” –Financial Times
