"Mr. Worth was simply suberb, singing with exquisite sensitivity..."
The New York Times

"Matthew Worth's refined baritone has been on display at any number of the nation's high profile assignments recently and with good reason: his bright, fresh baritone, virile and buzzy in lower patches, sails easily up to tenor territory seemingly at will ... He cuts a fine figure, relaxed and appealing."
Opera Today

"As much through his singing as through his acting, Matthew Worth left a memorable mark on the title role. His sizable baritone filled out the music warmly and with abundant nuance; a conversational directness in his phrasing enhanced his finely detailed acting."
Opera News

"Matthew Worth was both noble and touching, his bright, firm baritone filling out the vocal lines with deep understanding and sensitivity."
Opera Magazine

"Matthew Worth enacted the title part to the hilt. Tall, rangy and virile, he emerged fully worthy of his adoring fans."
Opera News

"Accompanied by a gentle ostinato, Worth accomplished the most memorable moment of the evening with a sumptuous vocal line that throbbed with remorse and memory."
