Goodness, my head was spinning whilst reading the past and upcoming engagements. You are definitely on the move, Michael. Congratulations and I can't wait to see you in New York!
rather impressive for a son of mine.
Michael!Congratulations to your new website! You're fabulous! Can't wait to see you soon!
Yay! You have an official website! It looks fantastic. Can't wait to see you--hopefully soon!
Dude, your Romeo clip on youtube from March 2010 is awesome! I'm so glad you're doing well . . . great website too.
My best wishes to you ! I had the chance to see you now twice in Salzburg and I must say that I was deeply impressed. I wish you much success for your future, and my wish for myself is to be able to visit lots of your performances. Unfortunately I did not find any dates in Vienna, although you have a Viennese management ? Well, that's typical ... *sigh
First of all, congratulations on your engagement to the beautiful Tara.Secondly, we reviewed your busy schedule. You are already so sought after, my my.Thirdly, read your press releases. My heart filled with pride and love for you.
Michael, thank you for the opportunity to hear your voice. I believe that you feel very deep everything you sing about. My father is opera singer too. And we both like finding your audios and videos in Youtube and listen them when we need something positive and bright!
Miguel, So very proud of you. Come visit the farm when you're stateside.
From a tenor in Canada, I found you while looking for YouTube clips of a Viaggio scene that I'm singing in. After hearing all your youtube videos, I've determined that I should have heard about you a long time ago! Your voice is a great gift to the world, and you are doing well to use it. Thanks for the inspiration and I hope to see you perform one day, or maybe even be on the same stage! Cheers!
Michael, I can't tell you how happy I am for you and your success. You are such an amazing singer and the world needs to hear and see you! Can't wait for your CD, I will definitely buy it.Whenever I check for your videos on YouTube, my little daughter Emily is mesmerized by your voice! She's your "smallest" fan! :-)Great webpage, btw - love the look! I really hope to be able to see you on stage sometime soon!All the best,Daniela (hope you still know who I am)
Hi Michael. I am a great fan of Händel. Searched for 'Comfort ye' on Youtube and found you and your divine voice. Can't stop replaying the video, and I am deeply moved by your voice. I don't no much about music, but I am highly sensitive and sense music with heart & body (not my head).If you ever perform in Denmark, I must go and see/hear you.All the best of luckfromEdith NielsenDenmark
Dear Michael, I just "discovered" you this evening, and I'm positively blown away. You are an absolutely superb artist. Voice, expression, languages - all incomparable. I look forward to hearing you next time you're in Vienna. Until then, multitinous "Toi, toi, tois."
Wow! Having just seen the Messiah at the Sydney Opera House, I went to youtube to hear 'Comfort Ye'. Having now heard yours now a number of times, it is the definitive, best rendition! I look forward to seeing you perform live at the earliest opportunity. Bravo.
Like others, I found you on youtube. Come to New York or Berlin!!! All the best.
Dear Mr. Spyres:My wife Marie-Pierre and I were thrilled by your performance in Les Huguenots at Bard the summer before last, and we are delighted that we will have a chance to hear you in another Nourrit role at Caramoor this July. Good luck preparing this very demanding assignment!!With best wishes for your continued success,Michael Ellmann
You know I listen to your videos all the time and am amazed. You sing with such passion and beauty I am spellbound. I would love to see you and Tara and hear you sing together sometime. What a treat that would be!!!! I love you both.
When is your CD going to be available? I will have to have it. I still listen to the first one you gave me years ago. I knew you would have a wonderful career.
Michael, I don't know if you remember me or not, but I was one of the dancers from MFAA the summer of '96. I saw an article in the paper about you performing in La Boheme in Springfield this weekend and I thought, "I know that guy!" You've certainly accomplished a lot in the past 15 years...Congratulations!!! I wish you the best of luck with your performances and all the success in the world!!!
Also found you off of YouTube! Tremendous vocal talents! Any prospects of appearing in Southern California??
All the best to you; keep up the fine work!
I enjoyed meeting you at Energy Conference tongight with Russell G.
I went on your site (obviously) and man-oh-man do you have some pipes! I love your voice and will certainly buy some of your music. Stay in touch and we will continue to "nudge" folks into being good stewarts of all the wonderful things God has provided for us.
Travel well my friend

Looking forward to your visit to Minnesota.
I have seen you for the first time in Salzburg as Ozia in "La Betulia Liberata". What a beautiful performance! Since then, I follow you on your Web Site and I listen to all your videos on youtube. I look forward to get your solo album. I just love your voice! I hope I will be able to go and hear you in Caramoor. Take good care of yourself.
Wow - a voice so beautiful, it's like melted butter on a freshly baked bread! Please tell me you are heading to either Ireland or the UK again!
What a fantastic voice. Listen to 'Je crois entendre encore' at You tube and try not to cry. Please wait to sing Puccini, Verdi etc. Stay at Bizet, Donizetti, Rossini and Bellini for a while! All the best and thank you. Hope to see you soon in Europe.
Hi Michael, we are absolutely impressed with your God-given talent!- and our best wishes for a blessed career!! Love you!

You're a rare bird: a superlative tenor. I came across your videos on youtube and bought your first album. Amazing! Incredible technique and a natural delivery. Makes one wonder if you ever had to overcome any difficulty. You have a great future ahead. All the best! Greetings from Brazil.
Ive been following your youtube clips for quite a few years..lovely musicianship and a great pleasure.Im sure many would hope you keep enjoying your career for a long time into the future.Stay relaxed!
Wow man, your si ritrovarla on Youtube is just outrageously good! When will you be in the Netherlands or Belgium?
Kind regards from an aspiring singer in the Netherlands,
So proud of you Michael - what an amazing family I have! Love you lots! Keep on keepin on!
Bravo! Che dono ha ricevuto, che tecnica sta maturando, che carriera luminosa la aspetta, Maestro!
What a joy to hear your wonderfull voice. If, by any chance you have the curiosisity, time, and willing to visit me in Lyon (France) I would be tremendous happy to show how to make your singing french even better..... because your singing is SO superb, the little mistakes you still show could disappear. I hope my name says you something... (Les Huguenots / Erato with Richard Leech, Les Troyens / Decca with Gary Lakes, La Damnation de Faust / Decca with Richard Leech.....and much more....) I don't sing any more, I teach now..... Friendly yours, Françoise POLLET. And congratulations, BRAVO, e tutti quanti : you are absolutly great.
My husband "discovered" you on youtube last week and has been raving about you ever since. I've watched many of your clips and listened to your CD and we both just love your voice and charming demeanor. We immediately purchased tickets to see you at Caramoor next summer. So looking forward to seeing you live, and I hope more in the NYC area in the future! Very best of luck to you.
It is such a pleasure to listen to your recordings on youtube. You have such an incredible voice. One day I will make it out to where I can see you live on stage. I am studying as a tenor at my college and I was curious as to your practice habits. I want to improve anyway that I can, so getting an idea of how many hours you practice a day and any tips on improving/furthering my training would be greatly appreciated.
Keep up the good work!
I kept looking for that one tenor that has it all.I read about you in Opera News,and looked you up.I got your CD today.WOW!! Can the Met be far behind.Take care of this gift from God.
We love you & Tara and the rest of your musical family and are thrilled for the successful career you have earned and deserve. All the best!
gentile Maestro, ho trovato il Suo sito casualmente attraverso la citazione della mia recensione del Suo Candide al'Opera di Roma. Ancora complimenti e spero di poterLa ascoltare presto
wow, what a wonderful voice..........
Thanks for sharing an informative post. I do like how you encourage the readers to take the time to think. I definitely enjoying every little.
I follow this young singer since the very first releases on YouTube and CDs, and I would like to say that he is one of the very few operatic singers who knows how to sing properly and ... he sings wonderfully!
All my best wishes and hope to see you once in Italy! :)
Je vous ai découvert cette année dans deux rôles rarement représentés: celui de Masaniello à Paris et Baldassare à Pesaro, j'ai tout simplement été impressionné par la beauté et l'étendue de votre voix.
Merci pour votre enthousiasme, votre audace et pour tout ce que vous apportez à l'art lyrique.
Un grand bravo et longue vie à votre carrière.
Proud of you Mike. Just talked to Sean today to congratulate him on the birth of his new son, didnt know you were in. Let me know next time and we can get together.
