    Biography not for publication, for an up to date version please contact Oliver Clarke.



    “Dem Belcore von Thomas Lehman hatte man einen italienisch aussehenden stummen Statisten als Begleitung an die Seite gestellt, aber akustisch konnte der Stipendiat des Förderkreises durchaus mit einer effektvoll vorgetragenen Auftrittsarie überzeugen. Als er und die Seinen zur Hochzeit auch noch in Galauniform erscheinen durften, war auch optisch alles perfekt.”
    – Der Opern Freund

    “Thomas Lehman, ein temperamentvoller Valentin mit wohllautendem Bariton, gefällt in dieser Rolle. Wenn er sterbend seine Schwester verflucht, müssten sensible Zuhörer/Innen zusammenzucken.”
    –Der Neue Merker

    “Thomas Lehman scores as pithy-laddish Valentin.”
