Samson et Dalila , Grange Park Opera -  The High Priest of Dagon

"...Michel de Souza (the High Priest of Dagon) made the most of the glorious lyricism of Saint-Saëns’ settings; de Souza also impressed in his exchanges with Dalila in Act II."

David Karlin,  Bachtrack, June 2015

"Musically, there are worthwhile performances from  Nicholas Fowell as the vicious Abimélech and Michel de Souza as the genocidal high priest."


George Hall, The Guardian , June 2015     

"Michel de Souza made a suave High Priest of Dagon, siging with a nice sence of style and a feel of constant present Danger."


Robert Hugill,  Planet Higill, June  2015

La Fanciulla del West , Grange Park Opera -  Sonora

"Special Mention to Michel de Souza's Sonora...

Cara Chanteau, The Independent, June 2016

"Michel de Souza was a touchy and prickly Sonora...." Planet Hugill Robert Hugill June 2016

"Michel de Souza sonorous Sonora...." The Art Desk" Stephen Walsh  June 2016

..."Sonora (Michel de  Souza) is a young star to watch out..." Louise Lewis   British Theatre Guide June 2016

"Brazilian baritone Michel de Souza was a vocally commanding and convincing High Priest of Dagon."

Sebastian Scotney,the arts desk, July  2015


Turandot, Royal Opera House - Mandarin


"Credit must also be given to Michel de Souza’s very finely sung Mandarin. An attractive baritone voice that promises much, he is another Jette Parker Young Artist who is well worth watching to see how he progresses."



Antony Lias,  Opera Britannia, September 2013

Jette Parker Young Artists Showcase, Royal Opera House 

Turning now to the 2012 intake, the most exciting prospect I felt was the baritone, Michel de Souza. He made an outstanding Papageno in the first excerpt (which was conducted by Paul Wingfield who was also given the chance to display his skills in the overture from Die Zauberflöte.) Mr de Souza has already completed Scottish Opera’s Emerging Artists’ Programme, and it shows. He offers superb projection and excellent diction as well as an energetic and engaging stage presence. He is most definitely “one to watch.”

Tosca, Royal Opera House - Angelotti

Michel de Souza’s Angelotti was strongly sung and well acted.


Mark Pullinger,  Opera Britannia, March 2013

The cunning little Vixen, Glasgow - Forester

The Forester I saw, Michel de Souza, was a fine, warm-toned, eloquent portrayal of the role. 

Michael Tanner, The Spectater, February 2011
