THE BARBER OF SEVILLE

The Glimmerglass Festival

“lyric tenor David Walton possesses a leggiero voice with coloratura flexibility that Rossini himself expected of his artists.

DON PASQUALE

Minnesota Opera

"The sweetest singing of the evening came from tenor David Walton, as Pasquale’s nephew Ernesto. A true lyric tenor with strong Italianate stylings, he poured a taste of honey on the top notes in Act One’s “Sogno soave e casto,” as well as on Act Three’s love song to Norina.”

DON PASQUALE

Minnesota Opera

"...with David Walton as Don Pasquale’s nephew, Ernesto...And that’s the role that provides this production’s breakthrough performance. Walton has consistently impressed since his days with male vocal group Cantus, and he gave up that gig to pursue an opera career. He’s been strong in smaller roles with Minnesota Opera, but this is his 6irst genuine star turn and he makes the most of it, casting a spell with solos of sadness and yearning. His voice is appropriately old-school, but with distinctive touches entirely his own, bursting with beauty and emotion."

ALBERT HERRING

Union Avenue Opera

"Tenor David Walton sings Albert, and he captures all the frustration and shyness of this repressed innocent. Walton has the perfect voice for this role, and he's most impressive in Act 2, scene 2, which is almost completely his soliloquy."

OPERA IN THE PARK

Madison Opera

"Just as lush and romantic... was tenor David Walton's performance of 'Ich Baue Ganz' from Mozart's 'The Abduction from the Seraglio, 'Madison Opera's second show of the season, set for February in the Capitol Theater. Walton's vocals had an appealing warmth and richness. His rendition of 'Maria' from Bernstein's 'West Side Story' lifted up to the hill where we sat, ringing in the air."
