Carousel / Virginia Opera / 2013

"Smooth and endlessly flexible operatic baritone Matthew Worth, the surprising star of the Virginia Opera's sneak hit Orphée last season, firmly anchors the company's current production as a nasty, abrasive, yet oddly touching Billy Bigelow. Complete with a believable Maine accent,  Mr. Worth's incredibly expressive voice easily persuades us of the romantic side of Billy's character , hidden inside his defensive persona but longing to be released, giving his interpretation of one of this show's signature songs, 'If I Loved You', a genuine poignancy."
