"It is rare indeed to find a performance of a Bellini opera these days, and with its vertiginous lead roles Puritani is rarer than most. But it is such a treat!" - Seen and Heard International
"Scott Hendricks’ baritone is honeyed and mellifluous. His aria and cabaletta in the opening scene are really beautiful, and he rises to the challenge of his duet with Arturo with thrilling skill." - Seen and Heard International
