THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE  

"Jonathan Stinson portrayed the Pirate King with wonderful control – his voice is already amazing, but to hear him in “Oh, better far to live and die” and own the stage was lovely. His pirate king was comedic and his pirate crew was fantastic."


     --Sullivan County Democrat

RIGOLETTO

"Baritone Jonathan Stinson, taking on the title role, wrings every last drop of emotion from

the fate of the wretched Rigoletto, his initial confidence shaken by Monterone’s curse, and forever after haunted by premonitions of disaster."

     

     --North West End (UK) 

"Jonathan Stinson made a showstopping appearance as Count Monterone, laying his curse on the Duke and Rigoletto with his strong, powerful voice and appearing again before his execution to torment Rigoletto as the curse begins to take effect."

     --Sullivan County Democrat 

GIANNI SCHICCHI

"Baritone Jonathan Stinson perfectly captured the conniving bravado of Schicchi" 

  

     --Cincinnati Business Courier 

"The title role was strongly sung by baritone Jonathan Stinson in this performance, who convincingly portrayed the machismo and selfish bravado of the main character." 

     --KCMetropolis.org

DEAD MAN WALKING

"Jonathan Stinson as De Rocher maintained

the perfect balance between tough-guy façade and the inner mortal, sensitive and fearful."

     --The Boston Music Intelligencer

OF MICE AND MEN

"Jonathan Stinson, acting with grace and realism, produced some laser high notes of his own, subtly restraining his voice for an intense, sensitive singing of Slim's Act II aria."
