“baritone Jason Detwiler...displayed forceful stage presence,
superb acting skills, clear diction and impressive vocal color,
ranging from snarling, macho outbursts to tender lyricism.
Especially notable were his ardent, beguiling way with
“Il balen” and the impassioned, menacing tone he
brought to the Act IV supplication scene with Leonora.”
