“Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins is excellent as the Count. His portrayal was more nuanced that the usual indignant and self-aggrandized minor royalty who is having a bad day. His portrayal is less of a stereotype. His Count is bewildered and bemused by events he thought he controlled; a bungling lothario and incompetent schemer who is surprised when outfoxed at every turn. Vocally, he has a bright and flexible baritone voice that easily met the well-known challenges of the role. Reportedly, he missed opening night due to illness but there was no evidence of that remaining at the Jan. 30 performance.” TheatreJones,
