Reviews


RIGOLETTO - OPERA SARATOGA (2012)

"[Kohl's] voice, deliciously lyrical and emotionally nuanced, offered a beautiful timbre..." - Opera Now

"Bits of magic were sprinkled through an otherwise sturdy performance by the Opera Saratoga on Monday afternoon in the Spa Little Theater of Verdi’s “Rigoletto.” The act one love duet between soprano Marie-Eve Munger and tenor Joshua Kohl, playing Gilda and the Duke, ended with one of those moments that only opera can provide.  The orchestra drops out and the voices float and dance together in beautiful harmony. (...) The fine level of singing was certainly the best and most consistent part of the production.  (...) Kohl’s singing revealed the fullest emotional range of the principals — joy, rapture, rage – plus his character gets to deliver the opera’s most famous tune, “La donna e mobile.” - Albany Times-Union

"Tenor Joshua Kohl as the amoral Duke of Mantua sang with great agility, consistency of range and a big voice." - The Daily Gazette

"Returning to Opera Saratoga as Duke for this production was tenor Joshua Kohl, who sang Don Jose in “Carmen” here two seasons ago. The audience loved his delivery of the well-known aria, “La donna è mobile,” and he steamed up the stage in his seduction scene with the assassin’s lusty, ripe sister, Maddalena, played by mezzo-soprano Audrey Babcock." - The Saratogian
