CRITICAL ACCLAIM


"...absolutely splendid..." – Opera News


Tosca – Hunter Enoch’s Scarpia, though, was absolutely splendid. His vocal makeup was ideally suited to the assignment—a weighty dramatic baritone, utterly responsive throughout its range, with a trace of the “snarl” so essential to this role. In Act I, he wore the traditional powdered wig; in Act II, the wig removed, he showed himself to be a young, almost babyfaced man. This Scarpia hadn’t learned how to be evil; he was evil from birth.

"...vocally agile, displaying consummate control..." – Washington Classical Review


Le nozze di Figaro – Bass-baritone Hunter Enoch headlined a strong cast of mostly MDLO regulars, with a polished performance as Figaro. His interpretation was vocally agile, displaying consummate control over the entirety of the role’s range, including powerful top notes. As the servant who ultimately outwits his bullying master, Enoch’s calm presence seethed with repressed resentment.

"...rock-solid vocally as all four of Hoffmann’s nemeses..." – The Aspen Times


Les contes d'Hoffmann – Chief among the cast for sheer vocal presence and power were… and bass-baritone Hunter Enoch, rock-solid vocally as all four of Hoffmann’s nemeses, an oddly shaped red hair and beard identifying him as he lurked around the edges of

every scene. He created a demonic aura every time he stepped forward.

"...Enoch brings the heat with an astounding performance..." – ReviewSTL


Tosca – Another fresh arrival is Hunter Enoch. Playing Puccini’s heavy with great vigor, his sneering and snarling resonates with audiences who loathe Scarpia from his arrival onstage through his unfortunate demise. It is not easy playing the villain, but Enoch brings the heat with an astounding performance. Serving as the catalyst for the drama, he holds his own, matching Van Kooten and Stahley’s vocal potency.
