Wagner and Beyond | West Australia Symphony Orchestra

"The integration of music and drama is central to Wagner’s performance concept and it was thus invaluable to have bass-baritone Shane Lowrencev on hand to sing powerfully from Meistersinger and Die Walküre. Especially in the latter, Wotan’s farewell to his daughter Brünnhilde, the singer conveyed both tenderness and a strong dramatic presence, a highlight of the evening that was acknowledged by the audience."

Carmen | Opera Australia

“Shane Lowrencev has an imposing presence as swaggering toreador Escamillo and sings the bass-baritone role with apparent ease.”

Lyric Opera Winter Gala

“…Shane Lowrencev stealing the show… Shane is described as 'charismatic, sexy and a great actor'. He has a rich baritone voice, full of energy and connected with his audience. The days of 'stand and deliver' are well and truly gone, singers must also be actors, and Shane does this in spades.”

Don Giovanni | Opera Australia

“The vocal standout among the men is Shane Lowrencev as Leporello. Powerful and clear at the top with excellent diction, the role is a perfect fit for him right now and he relishes every moment, knowing exactly what liberties he can take to further the comedy.“

La Bohème | Opera Australia

“Shane Lowrencev gave the musician Schaunard’s role a high camp edginess and vocal incisiveness.”
