“‘He’s great, he’s brilliant,” [Monica Huisman] enthuses. “Todd is generous, humble, kind and ridiculously talented. It’s just such an honour to share the stage with him, and not only do we get to sing together, but we get to have fun together.”
The London, Ont.-based Cavanagh — another native Winnipegger — who directed Thomas in Il Trovatore echoes those sentiments.
“For all his power and all the force of his vocal personality, Todd also has this incredible vulnerability as a human being and as an artist. That is just so rare and makes him so immediately likable onstage. His sound has such incredible warmth and colour that can only come from a guy with a big, huge heart and a deep soul,” Cavanagh says.”
