Testimonials and reviews:
'I worked with Nicholas last summer on a new musical as one of the lead characters, and also playing some smaller roles. I was always impressed with his sense of adventure, discipline and sense of humour throughout the process and loved watching him bringing the roles to life on stage. A great performer, a great voice, a great person to have in any production.’
-Preece Kilick, Director 'Marco Polo, An untold love story' musical
‘Nicholas has a powerful, well-trained Baritone voice fitting well the role of Khogatal in "Marco Polo. A Ne ... w Musical" at The Shaw Theatre in the summer of 2016. He diligently studied his role in a highly disciplined manner. He also exhibited both teamwork and camaraderie with his fellow performers for the whole duration of the show.’
-Roger Saldo Chua, Composer/ Producer
'Nicholas Lupu's performance as the conductor of the Vienna State Opera in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION was well researched and thoroughly believable. He met the challenge of conducting a symphony orchestra with hard work and good spirits. By the time filming had wrapped, he probably could have conducted the opera TURANDOT for real. In fact, he basically did!'
-Joe Kraemer, Award winning film composer, 'Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation'
‘We had the pleasure of working with Nicholas during our panto season. He was a delight to work with and we always found him to be enthusiastic, punctual and reliable. He puts great detail and care into his work and we would jump at the chance to work with him again.’
-Griff Mellhuish, Artistic Director Carousel Theatre
‘It was an absolute pleasure to direct Nicholas in my film 'The Swallow' (Official Selection, Cambridge Film Festival) – in addition to being a very fine actor, he is a generous collaborator and a consummate professional on set. I can wholeheartedly endorse him and hope to work with him again soon!‘
-Harry Baker, Director/ Filmmaker
‘Nicholas Lupu(…) has stood out through expressivity and artistically mastery that suggest a good understanding of the artistic act, both musically and mpost of all theatrical.’
-Janina Badici, Music news( Actualitatea muzicala, 2011)
'Nicholas Lupu, a vocal quality between that of Florei, Iordachescu and Herlea, has stood out in songs such as 'Chanson a boire ' by Ravel, in 'Zaza' by Leoncavallo, and in the duet with Corina Constandis he was impeccable and took the audience by storm with 'Don Pasquale' by Donizetti, proving that he is an amazing baritone.'
‘Nicholas Lupu (…) is the most gifted from the ensemble, born to be Figaro in my opinion, is someone I haven't seen in any other creations of Mozart, Rossini, Donizetti, Strauss, Ceaikovski, Verdi, Bizet... He posses a volcanic vitality, knowing when to give and when to take energy, and with every studied or spontaneous gesture, knows when to point out an idea or a symbol.’
