.....The most accomplished of the singers is Amar Muchala, originally from Bombay, who performs Tamino in a way that puts him, as he should be, but almost never is, at the centre of the audience's interest. Tamino tends, thanks to the deficiencies of the text, to alternate between being a wimp and a prig, but Muchala, with his handsome looks, romantic acting and eloquent, free singing, gives us a character who develops from being primarily conscious of his royal status to being concerned to discover the fullest potential of being human...
.....I'd be surprised if we don't see and hear a lot more of her and Muchala...
... ...If Amar Muchhala's Tamino cuts a rather stiffer figure, his tenor is light and easy, with a hint of baritone adding weight...
...There were some attractive voices on display. Amar Muchhala, as Tamino, made a wonderfully smooth sound...
....The solo vocal star of the show was Amar Muchhala as Tamino......... he is musical, slim, handsome and an unfussy actor. He should go far.
...Ohne schlechtes Gewissen darf der warm timbrierte Tenor Amar Muchhala sein politisch unkorrekt gewordenes Auftrittslied "O welche Lust, Soldat zu sein" auskosten – die in naiver Girlie-Attitüde lechzenden Dorfschönheiten sorgen dafür, dass man die schneidige Anmache auch heute noch versteht.
(The warm timbered Amar Muchhala was allowed to enjoy, his entry song "oh what fun, to be a soldier" which has become politically incorrect, without a bad conscience the village beauties take care, that one understands the snazzy erotica of that time even today by presenting their parts in a naive girlie attitude)
...Mit Amar Muchhala, der mit "Komm', o holde Dame" eine der schwierigsten Tenorarien überhaupt meistert, steht zum ersten Mal in der Kammeroperngeschichte ein Inder auf der Bühne.
(Amar Muchhala, who has mastered "komm, O holde Dame" one of the most difficult Tenor aria, is the first Indian in the history of the Chamber opera, to stand on stage for the first time)
