Press coverage

Every house can only wish such a tenor…

Zoltán Nyári is Siegfried. With never ending power and imposing splendor he sings the gigantic play from the heroic smithy songs over the lyric wood weaving up to the ecstatic finale without least fatigue phenomena and with consistently nice tone. With this achievement he could be welcome to the biggest houses." (
"Zoltán Nyári as Siegfried, and her partner as Brünhilde take full advantage of the vocal virtues demanded here, mastering the demanding vocal tasks of their roles with flying colors."
"With the soloists, the Theater Hagen is lucky, although a good Tristan is even harder to find than true love. The Hungarian tenor Zoltan Nyari encounters this in every respect: extreme game and well-divided strength. Again and again he lets the lyrical highlights of the game appear cultured, but when it comes down to it, he effortlessly drowns out the loud orchestra. "
"The tenor solos of Zoltán Nyári are also close to the listeners in their highest expressivity."
Münchener Abendzeitung
"Nyári has everything that the role demands from the tenor: height-secure dramatic singing, coupled with immense radiance in the voice, in some sections heldentenorian, then again melting-hearted. The singer threw himself into the game irrespective of losses and won all the way."
Der Opernglass
"Zoltán Nyári is celebrated as a hero of the title. His Siegfried is bursting with energy, so really heroic. His compelling tenor develops almost Italian bel canto when immersed in melodies in the midst of many recitative movements. The Hungarian, as strong in the Oldenburg ensemble as most others, also gains many nuances from the piano."
"... Zoltán Nyári has been hired for the extremely demanding role of Tristan. The Hungarian tenor, in this production especially demanded by acting, did not save with vocal expression and had even in the third act, in the long monologue of Tristan, enough reserves for the high notes of this enormous Wagnerian work and mediated through his impressive game much of the suffering and the inner torment of the unfortunate hero Tristan. Much applause also for him. "
Zoltán Nyári is Paul, a height-sure, yet seemingly unpretentious, therefore believably acting tenor, to which the drama is clearly a concern. Admirable, as he finds at the very end still almost internalized tones for the "Glück, das mir verlieb".
Wiener Zeitung online
"Nevertheless,  Zoltán Nyári, who interpreted Paul as a sovereign, textually clear, virile heroic tenor with bronze timbre, proved to be a fortunate stroke of luck: a vocal and dramatic masterpiece!"
Die Presse
"Zoltán Nyári, otherwise mostly heard in Budapest, was successful two years ago in The Duchess of Chicago (Kálmán) at the Komische Oper. As a youthful Heldentenor color, crystal-clear intonation and his design of the big role are a true pleasure." .
"But as Hoffmann, the Hungarian tenor Zoltán Nyári … has the strength to manage the full deroute and the overall impression of Offenbach’s ‘fantastic opera’ turns out as yes, just precisely fantastic." .
Thomas Michelsen, Politiken
