Critical Acclaim

Marriage of Figaro, Maryland Lyric Opera

"Bass-baritone Hunter Enoch headlined a strong cast of mostly MdLO regulars, with a polished performance as Figaro. His interpretation was vocally agile, displaying consummate control over the entirety of the role’s range, including powerful top notes. As the servant who ultimately outwits his bullying master, Enoch’s calm presence seethed with repressed resentment."

- Charles T. Downey, Washington Classical Review

Les contes d’Hoffmann, Aspen Music Festival

"Chief among the cast for sheer vocal presence and power were… and bass-baritone Hunter Enoch, rock-solid vocally as all four of Hoffmann’s nemeses, an oddly shaped red hair and beard identifying him as he lurked around the edges of every scene. He created a demonic aura every time he stepped forward."

- Harvey Steiman, The Aspen Times

La Bohème, The Glimmerglass Festival

"A special nod to Hunter Enoch as Marcello, whose baritone could be rich and bright and dark and bristling as the role demanded."

- Gale Martin

Better Gods, Washington National Opera

"“Hunter Enoch showed a firm, pleasant baritone as the journalist James Miller, who is forced to confront the untruths he has published from the American perspective, though not to emend them…”"

- Anne Midgette

Russian Romances, Academy of Vocal Arts

"“Hunter Enoch as the Knight, wielding a steeled baritone and great diction, could sing this on any opera stage in the world tomorrow…”"

- Lewis Whittington
