…terrific as the production’s lead…
 Don Pasquale - “Philip Cokorinos was terrific as the production’s lead, handling his many agitated diatribes and inadvertent duets with aplomb.” – Santa Barbara Independent 
…first-rate singing…
 La Cenerentola - “With his double takes and well-handled comedic high jinks, not to mention first-rate singing, bass-baritone Philip Cokorinos could hardly have been stronger as [Don] Magnifico.” – Opera News 
…outstanding combination of actor and singer…
Il barbiere di Siviglia - In the cast, probably the most outstanding combination of actor and singer is Philip Cokorinos, whose performance of music master Don Basilio’s lecture on slander, “La Calunnia,” literally stopped the show with long applause.” Sacramento Bee
…rolling, commanding baritone…
The Cunning Little Vixen - Surpassed by a tremendous performance from Philip Cokorinos as “Bartos, the Forester.” Mr. Cokorinos’ rolling, commanding baritone; his heartfelt outpouring of thoroughly internalized text; and his sympathetic demeanor didn’t just merely touch me, but rather became the heart of the piece, making the opera work for me in a way that no previous mounting had.”Opera Today
…rich, ringing baritone…
Don Giovanni - Vocally, Philip Cokorinos shines as the gem in the cast as Leporello.With rich, ringing baritone notes, he often outshines his master in vocal abilities.He has fine acting chops as well, easily milking laughs from his often laughable character.”The Emory Wheel
…strong projection of character …
L’Amore dei Tre Re - Philip Cokorinos, as the blind Archibaldo, who strangles his faithless daughter-in-law, stood out from the fine cast for his commanding voice and strong projection of character.”Opera News
