Jonathan Lasch

Baritone

Jonathan Lasch has been described by critics as possessing a voice of “arresting color and heft” that is “thrillingly resonant and firm-lined”, “handsome”, “robust”, “resolutely strong” and “penetrating.”

Most recently, Lasch performed the role of Leporello in Don Giovanni with Michigan Opera Theater, Captain Corcoran in H.M.S. Pinafore with Piedmont Opera, Scarpia in Tosca for Opera Saratoga’s Pasta and Puccini Night, Marcello in La bohème with Arbor Opera Theatre, Masetto in Don Giovanni with Green Mountain Opera Festival, and joined the Aspen Opera Theater Center to perform the role of Ford in Falstaff. Up next, Jonathan performs Marco in A View from the Bridge with Michigan Opera Theatre, as well as Messiah with the Milwaukee Symphony.

…a tour-de-force…
 Falstaff“As the fat knight, Lasch delivered a complete portrayal, proving to be a natural comedian while projecting a voice of arresting color and heft. His performance was a tour-de-force, whether singing the praises of his enormous belly or raging through a variety of emotions in his Act 3 monologue.”- Cincinnati Inquirer
…thrilling, resonant and firm-lined…
Falstaff- “It may be invidious, in commenting on so uniformly excellent an ensemble, to single out two voices. I found the Ford of Jonathan Lasch and the Mistress Quickly of Teresa Herold to be the most thrillingly resonant and firm-lined members of the cast.” -Music Web International
…robust voice…
 The Rape of Lucretia -¨Jonathan Lasch made a splendid Tarquinius. Robust of voice, direct in action. We felt his raw lust.¨ -The Oregonian
…radiated both strenght and wry wit…
 Don Giovanni“Baritone Jonathan Lasch radiated both strength and wry wit as the flighty Zerlina’s intended groom.” Music in Cincinnati

Jonathan was a Glimmerglass Opera Young American Artist two years, during which he and sang the Jailer and covered Scarpia and in Tosca, Achilla in Giulio Cesare and covered Friedrich in Das Liebesverbot. Mr. Lasch has been fortunate to learn from some of the best training programs in the United States having participated in the Young Artist Programs not only at Glimmerglass Opera, but also Seattle Opera, Portland Opera, Chautauqua Opera, and Connecticut Opera, all while rounding out his academic studies with The Hartt School/University of Hartford (BM and MM) and CCM/ University of Cincinnati (Artist Diploma).
