“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
