Tim's "beguiling" and "sensual" Endimione returns to Munich

Tim is currently reviving his portrayal of Endimione in Cavalli's La Calisto at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich under Christopher Moulds. This is his third revival of David Alden's dazzling production at Munich and he will reprise his role next season when the production enjoys a revival in Spain. Tim has once again been enthusiastically received by the Munich audience and earned praise from the critics.

"The greatest happiness of the evening… is another counter-tenor, Tim Mead: Endymion, the lover of the Moon, is the most poetic character of the work, and everything in his role is attractive but Mead brings him a voice so fluid and so sensual, a musicality so delicate that it eclipses all its partners."

"the duets of [Anna Bonitatibus] with countertenor Tim Mead (Endymione) were the highlight of the evening. Mead was beguiling as the languorous lover; his countertenor was elegant, smooth, never edgy, perfectly supported on the breath."

"Tim Mead, a mortal shepherd, is a wonderful alto"

Tim's season continues with a concert performance of the title role in Giulio Cesare with the Early Opera Company and Christian Curnyn and a recital of Bach cantatas at the Wigmore Hall with La Nouva Musica and Daivd Bates.
