An uninhibited Joan Martín-Royo excelled as Papageno, totally at ease on the stage, he is the owner of a beautiful voice.
ABC, April 2012
This season has seen the emergence of Joan Martín-Royo at the Liceu, with three strong roles of which, following Benguerel's Dalí and the other Mozart role (Figaro), Papageno was the icing on the cake. His good-natured stage presence, never exaggerated or vulgar, coupled with a meticulous song line, show the great Catalan baritone of the moment.

The Spanish baritone Joan Martín-Royo was sensational in the role of Papageno. He has a beautiful high-quality voice that can always be clearly heard. Artistically he was unbeaten in the role.

This stunning Flute has benefitted from a delightful and very strong Papageno, baritone Joan Martín-Royo, who holds the attention of the entire audience and portrays the character perfectly.
Moments d'Òpera / COM Ràdio, April 2012
Joan Martín-Royo’s Papageno is a prodigy. Perfect vocally, musically exquisite, and as an actor, completely attuned to the extroverted vision of [director] Joan Font, he becomes his alter ego.
