Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins will sing Guglielmo in our upcoming Cosi in March. Starting off 2009 right with lots of Mozart, he's currently performing Papageno in The Magic Flute with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra under Bernard Labadie in their new "Opera in Concert" series.

UPDATE (1/23/09): The reviews are in for Hopkins' Papageno with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and the Toronto Star raves: "The one special treat last night was young Pembroke-native baritone Joshua Hopkins, in the role of Papageno. His golden voice and engaging stage presence hold the promise of a great international career."
