American baritone Todd Thomas is recognized with operatic companies and critics alike as one of the true Verdi baritones currently gracing stages today. Recently as Macbeth, Opera News depicted his performance as “warm and centered in his tone with subtle phrasing that emphasized the introspective, almost poetic quality of the tormented king.” Of a recent Falstaff performance, Opera News said, “Thomas’s forthright vocalism (featuring wonderful top notes) and apt physique give him a leg up in this part, but he also captured the generous, earthy spirit of Shakespeare’s creation, giving the evening its comic and emotional fulcrum…it’s hard to imagine there are many better Falstaffs working on North American stages today.”
