Steffan Lloyd Owen as Brundibár was a suitably pantomimic villain.

Cardiff Times
From the costumes to the set this performance oozed colour and all gave outstanding performances. Steffan Lloyd Owen delivered a powerful vocal performance as the villain, Brundibar.

The Pilgrim's Progress

Lord Hate-Good in The Pilgrim's Progress at the RNCM, Manchester
The Arts Desk
Steffan Owen stood out for his singing and his characterization as Lord Hate-Good (now, with the text as cue, a be-wigged and merciless judge).

Number 9 Review
Although not all the singers had the volume to counter the orchestra in this, the opera’s most heavily-orchestrated scene, there were some good turns from ... Steffan Owen as Lord Hate-Good.

Tosca

Tosca was absolutely brilliant, with world-class opera heavyweights gracing the pavilion stage alongside young talent such as Steffan Lloyd Owen and Joseph Elwy Jones.

Concerts & Recitals

Concert at the North America Festival of Wales, New York
Ninnau vol.42
We then were introduced to Steffan Lloyd Owen’s musical presentation. A prodigiously talented and personable performer, he is already greatly accomplished as he pursues his musical studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He won the prestigious Osborne Roberts Blue Riband awarded to the best soloist under the age of 25 at the 2016 National Eisteddfod in Abergavenny. As has now become an eagerly awaited tradition, NAWF provides an opportunity for the Blue Riband recipient to perform at NAFOW the following year. Steffan thrilled his audience with his program, further enhanced by a lovely duet sung with his partner Gwen Elin. The good news is that Steffan will be performing at NAFOW in Alexandria next year with his trio who have been receiving rave reviews in Wales. On this high note the evening ended with a rousing rendering of “Hen Wlad fy Nhadau” before the gathering moved to a Noson Lawen and hymn singing in the hotel lobby. A copy of the booklet honoring Catrin Brace will be available on NAWF’s website: www.nawf.wales
