“Opernwelt” about Brokeback Mountain (2014)
Christian Tschelebiew und Mark Omvlee bleiben dem unglücklichen Männerpaar in keiner Hinsicht etwas schuldig, sängerisch, optisch und darstellerisch sind die beiden eine Idealbesetzung.

“Opernglas” about Brokeback Mountain (2014)
Großartig waren die beiden Darsteller ‘...’ Sie konnten sowohl darstellerisch mit Einfühlvermögen und Ehrlichkeit überzeugen als auch musikalisch met Subtilität und Ausdruck. Omvlee brillierte mit seinem markant hellen schlanken Tenor, der sowohl lyrische Finesse wiedergab als auch für das Parlando und den Konversationsstil, den Wuorinen pflegt, perfekt geeignet ist.

“Frankfurter Allgemeine” about Brokeback Mountain (2014)
Die Besetzung der beiden Hauptfiguren ‘...’ ist ein Glücksfall. Beide meistern bravurös die vertracktesten Intervallsprünge, sie verfangen sich nicht in den zuhauf ausgelegten rythmischen Fußangeln, statten ihre Partien auch noch mit Schönklang aus und folgen überdies präzise der ausgeklügelten Personenführung vond Ludger Engels.

"Opera Nederland" about Owen Wingrave with "Opera Trionfo" (2013)
Mark Omvlee excels as Lechmere, being the energetic opposite of Owen. The performance of this difficult, high-pitched tenor part could be considered his best achievement so far.

"Frankfurter Algemeine" about Mahlers Lied von der Erde (2012)
…both with crystal clear intonation and highly agile expression, combined with impeccable vocalization and articulacy of the German text – one would wish to see such high quality of both vocals and text deliverance in all the foreign singers who currently fill our opera houses and concert halls.

"NRC Handelsblad" about Barbe Bleue with "Opera Zuid" (2011)
At that moment enter the sissy despot Bobeche played by Mark Omvlee, who terrifically hams it up. He literally tumbles over his subjects, and immediately the production gains pace and becomes irresistibly corny.

"De Volkskrant" about Barbe Bleue with "Opera Zuid" (2011)
Vocally strong bright spots are Mark Omvlee as the king...

"Place de l’Opera" about Barbe Bleue with "Opera Zuid" (2011)
Especially Omvlee has them laughing. Not only his acting is tremendous, but he also possesses a carrying tenor which he even colors sharply. In my opinion, he was the highlight of the evening.

"NRC Handelsblad" about Nozze di Figaro with "Opera Zuid" (2010)
All in all it's a cheerful, sometimes even farcical production featuring entertaining performers, especially Mark Omvlee (Basilio and Curzio).

"De Telegraaf" about King Artur with "Xynix Opera" (2009)
...the charming Arthur, splendidly played by Mark Omvlee, is the knight in shining armour.

...the two servants of Falstaff, Bardolfo…en Pistola…are good for much vocal and theatrical fun.

"8Weekly" about Falstaff with "Opera Zuid" (2009)
His timing of jokes and actions is flawless and he knows how to relay his text and support others with subtle gestures as well as with his whole physique.

"De Stentor" about Johannes Passion (2009)
...the tenor Mark Omvlee, who sung the demanding role of the Evangelist in a seldomly heard clear and expressive manner

The cast is excellent.
