…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
…sang like a pro…
 Don Giovanni – “Jonathan Lasch’s Masetto looked like a nice country bumpkin but sang like a pro in solos and ensemble.” – Opera News 
…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
