Reviews

Cloudstreet State Opera of South Australia

“Nicholas Cannon, as his brother Quick, creates the complexity of a young man who initially lives in his brother’s shadow only to become his carer and close friend; there is a warmth and sincerity to his performance” Greg Elliott - In Daily May 2016 

 

“As the Lamb brothers Nicholas Jones and Nicholas Cannon and as their love interest Rose, Desiree Frahn, are actor-singers who could wring tears out of a stone and certainly did with the world premiere Adelaide audience.” Diana Simmonds - Stage Noise May 2016

“Cannon, in particular, flourishes in embracing these features of Australian speech, crafting a nuanced performance as Quick Lamb”

Jane Howard - The Guardian May 2016 

The Magic Flute State Opera of South Australia

“Nicholas Cannon brings to birdman Papageno an easy charm and comic timing”

Ewart Shaw - The Adelaide Advertiser February 2016

“Nicholas Cannon took on the birdcatcher role of Papageno with comic zeal”

Graham Strahle - The Australian February 2016

Nicholas Cannon (Quick Lamb) & Nicholas
