Reviews

“A true stage presence, an advantageous and well-employed physique, considered and well-thought out acting – devilishly emotive, a truly beautiful, resounding and well-projected voice, with a vibrant and lyric upper range as well as gorgeous low notes”

Joel Heuillon

“le Figaro Anas Seguin (Révélation classique de l’ADAMI) qui réjouit dès sa première entrée sur scène, dans son incroyable véhicule : un vélo-carriole, lui permettant de transporter un passager devant lui, passager dont le siège n’est autre qu’un fauteuil de barbier ! … Ce Figaro à la barbe fournie et remplie de fleur, déploie une voix agile et bien timbrée, qui sait être tranchante comme son rasoir ou s’aérer tel un brushing, le tout à la mesure des lieux et du public, comme son jeu d’acteur.”
