"Joseph Dennis, who stood in for the sick Sebastian Kohlhepp, shone as Tamino with a melodious, almost baritone sound. With his youthful and amiable demeanor, coupled with an impressive vocal expressiveness, the gradual transformation from naive boy to self-confident man in the course of the opera was all the more enjoyable. Dennis reflected this change in small format in "This portrait is enchantingly beautiful" and calmly analyzed his new feelings, with ever greater self-confidence and greater determination."
