His performances have been critically praised for both attractive lyrical singing and accomplished acting:
Peter Kirk shone as Arthur Rimbaud, moving seamlessly between superb acting (it took a detailed reading of his biography to convince me that he hadn’t been imported from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts) and mesmerizing song. (Bachtrack Feb 13).
Peter Kirk revealed a gorgeous young lyric tenor which made one wish he had a larger part than just Lucano. (capricciomusic.blogspot.co.uk Nov 12).
From September Peter has been invited to join the Opera National du Rhin's prestigious Young Artist Programme in Strasbourg for the 2014/ 2015 season, he will perform a number of roles there, amongst them Paolino in Cimarosa's Il Matrimonio Segretto.
