"Daniel Kirch is able to give his Florestan the tenoral beautiful sound, his 'Gott, welch Dunkel hier...' is a breathtaking accusation for personal freedom." (Operapoint.com)
The German Tenor started his international career with parts like Lenski (Eugen Onegin), Belmonte (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), Fenton (Falstaff), Truffaldino (Die Liebe zu den drei Orangen), as well as Steuermann (Der fliegende Holländer), Ferrando (Così fan tutte) and Tamino (Die Zauberflöte).
