The New York Times said “Jospeh Lattanzi was splendid as Hawk, his buttery baritone luxuriant and robust.” and Opera News described him as a “confident, handsome presence, and a resonant baritone suggesting wells of feeling that the character might prefer to leave untapped.” The 2017-18 season brings a series of debuts for Mr. Lattanzi. He begins the season with his Virginia Opera debut as Sonora in La fanciulla del West and returns to the company later in the season as Demetrius in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
