“Hopkins is the vocal standout, his baritone bold and bright… ”  Dallas Morning News, Scott Cantrell, February 12, 2011.

“Among the rest of the cast, the two standouts were…Joshua Hopkins as Mercutio… Hopkins, in the bravura Queen Mab ballad in Act I, had the right combination of velvet and filigree, and he turned his character into a three-dimensional figure.” Opera News, Willard Spiegelman, May 2011.

“In the supporting roles, baritone Joshua Hopkins lit the stage as Romeo’s assertive and ill-fated companion Mercutio, with a magnetic presence and another hall-filling voice.”  D Magazine, Wayne Lee Gay, February 14, 2011.
