"Touched with comic genius"
The Independent

This amazing singing actor…everything he does is absolutely riveting. You can hear every word and every word is nuanced.
BBC Radio 3

"Director Simon Butteriss, who also plays Ko-Ko, is my nomination for greatest living Englishman. His Little List was hilarious, his timing is immaculate, his singing is excellent, his instinct for observing tradition while making it relevant is impeccable.
5 stars."
Tully Potter, Daily Mail

"Now as irreplaceable as his famous D’Oyly Carte forebears in the comic baritone roles"
Hugh Canning, Opera, November 2021


Simon's productions of PATIENCE and THE MIKADO, for the National G&S Opera Company this summer, garnered five star reviews:

"Gilbert and Sullivan audiences never had it so good, especially as the effervescent Simon Butteriss is back in three of his best roles…sharp edged…hilarious…perfumed perfection. Verdict: Bravo, Mr Butteriss!"
Tully Potter, Daily Mail

His play, MAKING MASSINGER, commissioned and produced by Wiltshire Creative, was streamed to five star reviews and has been nominated for a 2022 Off West End award.

"A thrilling tragedy…the writing is beautiful. Five stars."
