Critics are loving Joshua’s debut as the swaggering Belcore in Lyric Opera of Chicago’s The Elixir of Love. The Chicago Sun Times gives the show 4 stars and claims, “With his rich baritone, Hopkins’s Belcore was much more than a self-important lothario.” Chicago Classical Review  affirms, “Hopkins sang with a fine, dark-hued voice throughout and once again showed himself a natural comedian.” For more details, you can find the full reviews here.
