"After being Ernesto in last November's Don Pasquale, South African tenor Levy Sekgapane returned to Bari to play the role of Conte d'Almaviva in perhaps an even more credible manner, as Rossini's colouratura allowed him to perform formidable vocal feats, most evident in the final rondo Cessa di più resistere, performed with absolute precision [...] " (translated to English) ..More

" Am beeindruckendsten aber Levy Sekgapane. Der junge südafrikanische Tenor zeigte u. a. bei der Arie Ah dov’è, dov’è il cimento aus Semiramide Belcanto der Weltklasse. Sekgapane sollte in Hinkunft öfters in der Staatsoper vorbeischauen. "

" Most impressive, however, was Levy Sekgapane. The young South African tenor showed world-class bel canto in the aria Ah dov'è, dov'è il cimento from Semiramide, among others. Sekgapane should visit the State Opera more often in the future. " (translated to English)

„ The young Levy Sekgapane opens the recital with a melody by Rossini. His timbre shines in the high medium, set with a lively vibrato. [...] A performer of great sensitivity, he masters the nuances and varies the tones, sometimes melancholic, sometimes playful on a popular Verdi song. He becomes passionate and heroic when tackling the cavatina with its formidable high notes from Donizetti's Marino Faliero [...] “ (translated to English)

“Malfi’s voice glitters like diamonds, but she is perfectly matched by her Prince Charming, Don Ramiro (Sekgapane, and their two voices (as well as their fairy tale personas) blend beautifully. Sekgapane’s clear tenor unites unerring bel canto flair with consistently ringing high notes.“ ..More

“ Another champion, the Camille de Rossillon played by Levy Sekgapane; the tenor, who recently published an interesting Rossini recital, gave voice masses, pianissimi, dazzling high notes, highly articulated phrasing, impeccable diction. True bel canto lesson applied to operetta. It is no coincidence that Sekgapane and Cannavacciulo were, in fact, the most applauded.“
