Soldier Songs / Atlanta Opera / 2015

"One of the performance’s central pleasures is the wide variety of moods and textures that Worth brings to the role with his supple and extensively expressive voice. From youth to age, from panicked mortal danger to meditative stillness, he dives deeply into each song and its emotions. Even the simple act of closed-mouthed humming, which is heard at the beginning, at the end and during the course of the show, becomes suggestive of enormous, sublimated pain in Worth’s performance."
Andrew Alexander, Atlanta Journal Constitution

"Making his Atlanta Opera debut with Soldier Songs is baritone Matthew Worth as the Everyman soldier. In this performance, Worth offered up a splendidly taut performance in a role that leaves little time for anything outside of emotional extremes. His acting and his bracing baritone voice were both up to the task; the wide range of his vocal role required him in one scene to float up into the relative stratosphere of the tenor domain."
