“It remains to say how much we appreciated the American tenor Tyler Nelson. Velvety timbre, power, impeccable phrasing … and above all, dramatic commitment of every moment. Nelson is an exceptional character in this role, which is truly a glove for him, from his entry “Quanto è bella, quanto è cara” to the famous romance “Una furtiva lagrima”. The enthusiastic applause he receives at the end of the show shows that the public is aware of it.”

-Brigitte Cormier ForumOpera.com, August 2017

“As Belmonte, Tenor Tyler Nelson sang like the perfect handsome hero.”

-The Oakwood Register, 2017

“The lone tenor in a name role, Tyler Nelson as Don Ottavio — Donna Anna’s fiancé — made the most of his limited opportunities, delivering his arias with ringing emotion.”

-Dean M. Shapiro, New Orleans Advocate, 2016

“Of course, there’s still no reason to doubt Rosina’s preference for the energetic and passionate Almaviva of Tyler Nelson.”

                                         -Michael Dervan, The Irish Times, March 2016

“Tenor Tyler Nelson makes a wonderful Almaviva. His smooth, lyrical voice is well suited for bel canto and he does a fantastic job with his role. He sang his arias and ensembles with cleanly defined phrases and finely crafted expressions.”

                     -Edward Reichel Reichelrecommends.com, February 2015

“Possibly the most compelling singer in the whole evening and a great discovery for me is Tyler Nelson, who nearly steals the show in his heroic,heartfelt portrayal of Don Ottavio, the fiancé of Donna Anna.”

                                                                   -Susan Galbraith, DCTheaterscene.com, July 2014

“Tyler Nelson as Ottavio won over the crowd with his clean, sincere singing. Ottavio’s two arias (and two-dimensional character) often seem tedious, but here the musical delivery more than compensated.”

-Robert Battey, Washington Post, July 2014t13

“Tenor Tyler Nelson has the ideal dulcet, warm and melodious tone for Mozart. His seamless, melting“Un’aura amorosa” (“A breath of love”) was enchanting while his cavatina “Tradito schernito” marvelously juxtaposes
his bitter disappointment with his love for Dorabella.”

-William Thomas Walker, CVNC, October 2011

 “Tyler Nelson was hilarious as a travesti Delfa, managing the passaggio of his tenor with notable skill and looking for all the world like Mollie Sugden’s Mrs. Slocombe on Are You Being Served?”

-Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News, April 2010
