“Baritone Joshua Hopkins as Dr. Malatesta was especially robust; his melodies rang with authority and grace. His third act duet with Mr. Glavin (the notorious patter song “Cheti, cheti immantinente,” immediately encored) and first act scene with Ms. Oropesa (“Vado, corro”) were musical highlights, with crisp ensemble work and riveting staging.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Jeremy Reynolds, April 28, 2019.

“The Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins, in his company debut as the second named character, made an exceptionally fine first impression. His voice is one of great power and warmth, and his comedic timing is excellent. The incredibly complex patter song he sang with Glavin (twice) was met with roars of applause.” Pittsburgh in the Round, George B. Parous, April 28, 2019.

“Another reason to see this Don Pasquale is to see and hear baritone Joshua Hopkins.  His strong baritone voice, which can be authoritative or caressing, was put to good use as Dr. Malatesta which he played with camp and flair…He is clearly a rising star I would love to hear again.” OperaGene, April 29, 2019.
