“Reynolds’ pure sound with its subtle vibrato proved the hit of this night…”

Clive O’Connell, The Age, 17 May 2012

“Timothy Reynolds as Aeneas was no less impressive. An Australian with a resonant tenor voice, he brought appropriate angst and tension to the role, no more so than during the gripping denouement.”

Tim Wilcock, FringeReview (UK), 12 August 2014
