Tenor

Hire Angelos Samartzis ›
«Seine Stimme ist in den Tiefen kraftvoll, in den Mitten transparent und kommt in den Höhen gänzlich ohne Tremolo, ohne Zittern, aus. Dazu verfügt er über ein beachtliches Volumen. Damit hat Samartzis alles, um die ganze Gefühlsbreite einer Oper abzudecken.»
Helmstedter Nachrichten, 20.09.16 (2016)
«Er agiert souverän, ist absolut höhensicher und wärmt mit seiner Strahlkraft den Hörern die Herzen.»
Thüringer Allgemeine, 26.09.16 (2016)
«Vor allem er sticht besonders positiv aus dem Figurentableau heraus: Angelos Samartzis, seit dieser Spielzeit Ensemblemitglied des Theaters Nordhausen. Er macht als Narraboth mit kraftvollem, intonationssicherem Tenor und darstellerisch überzeugend auf sich aufmerksam.»
