“Even the bad guys in the cast sing so marvelously and with such fervor that one can only rejoice and thump one’s New Testament when they see the light and fall on their knees before the cross. Baritone Joshua Hopkins, back from last summer’s “Lucretia,” makes evil-bent Argante a snarling fiend.”
Boulder Daily Camera, Wes Blomster, July 13, 2009.

“Central City Opera has assembled a dazzling cast from top to bottom – all with a first-rate understanding of and feel for the ornamentation and other distinctive challenges of baroque opera. Baritone Joshua Hopkins puts his mark on the role of Argante, offering a commanding, suitably virile take on the king’s first-act aria.”
