"... a pleasure to hear…” – Opera News

Gianni Schicchi – “Levi Hernandez took a sober approach to Schicchi, with few of the bufffo-isms the assignment usually calls forth, and mercifully few of the ensuing musical approximations. It was a pleasure to hear the role sung so cleanly and fully."


"... Hernandez's baritone rings with clarity and power…” – The Virginian Pilot

Madama Butterfly – “Hernandez's baritone rings with clarity and power, and his presence is warm and natural as Sharpless takes on the fruitless task of speaking truth to Pinkerton.”


"... a warm, inviting baritone..." – Opera News

La bohème “As Marcello, Levi Hernandez impressed with a warm, inviting baritone, teaming expertly with Yunus in the remarkable Act III Quartet, blocked out expertly by Ozawa."


"... very strong and moving performance..." –

The Grapes of Wrath – “The stalwart Pa Joad is sung by baritone Levi Hernandez in another very strong and moving performance.”


"... wonderfully funny..." – Omaha World Herald

La Cenerentola – “As Don Magnifico, Cinderella's conniving stepfather, baritone Levi Hernandez was a perfect combination of oafish selfishness, comical pomposity and oblivious boorishness. He has a gorgeous timber, effortlessly executing those lightning quick divisions with deceptive ease. Hernandez also played the starring role in one of the evening's highlights when Don Magnifico drunkenly commandeered the wine cellar, showcasing his character's ludicrous pretentiousness in a wonderfully funny sequence.”
