REVIEWS
 
Bern Theatre - LOHENGRIN
Her swedish saviour Lohengrin's (alias Daniel Frank) play and appearance wasn't conceived as a brilliant hero but as a contrarian outsider. Vocally he convinced most of all with the Narration of the Holy Grail, which he started piano, steadily increasing up to the heroic point of culmination.
Der Neue Merker - Alex Esinger - 11/2015
«Lohengrin» Daniel Frank, tenor und hard rock singer, who already shone as Britten's Peter Grimes in 2014, gave the audience a lingering vocal sophistication.

Prague State Opera - TANNHÄUSER
'His voice is not big but it is bright, cutting above the orchestra, and to judge by Saturday night's performance his chief virtue is stamina.
