"James Morris created a most memorable character with his portrayal of the doctor. When he was serious, he tore at your heartstrings and when he was just slightly tipsy, he gave this opera a much-needed moment of light comic relief. I hope he will continue to grace the opera stage for seasons to come." - The Doctor in Vanessa at Santa Fe Opera, BACHTRACK, August 2, 2016

"Mr. Morris is Hans Sachs, one of Wagner’s finest creations, a modest shoemaker, a childless widower, a man revered in his town not just for his mastery of poetry and song, but also for his decency and insight into human relations. At the end, Mr. Morris received, rightly, the biggest ovation from the audience." - Hans Sachs in 'Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg' at the Metropolitan Opera, THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 3, 2014

"James Morris, one of the most outstanding of Wotans, was a massive vocal presence as a Doctor who (as Wozzeck perceives it) deals in Class A drugs; one sensed Edward Gardner unleashing the dogs of the ENO Orchestra whenever they underpinned the great bass-baritone, secure in the knowledge that he could out-sing any ffff that came his way." The Doctor in 'Wozzeck' at the English National Opera, THE CLASSICAL SOURCE, May 11, 2013
