“Vocally, the Count and Countess Almaviva…stole the show. Hopkins’ baritone is strong, beautiful, and confident. He sings with musicality, bringing depth to a character whose insatiable lust and violent jealousy typically do not endear him to the audience. This brute has feelings, albeit entirely selfish ones, and Hopkin’s portrayal of the Count makes it easier to forgive him in the end.” D Magazine, Catherine Womack, October 28, 2014.

“Joshua Hopkins is a warmly sonorous Count.” Dallas Morning News, Scott Cantrell, October 25, 2014.

“Joshua Hopkins…offered…masculinity…young, brooding and sexual…” Opera News, Willard Spiegelman, October 24, 2014.

“The cast was extraordinary. It’s no small feat to harmonize the frivolous comedy with the splendid singing…Hopkins and Car were especially outstanding.”  Edge Dallas, Drew Jackson, November 10, 2014.

“Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins gives a nuanced performance as the Count. In public, he is royally reserved. Alone, he is conflicted but mercurial when cornered.” DFW, Gregory Sullivan Isaacs, October 29, 2014.
