…prize portrayal…
 Francesca da Rimini “The baritone Mark Delavan’s Gianciotto — barbarous, yet seemingly genuine in his affection for Francesca — was the evening’s prize portrayal.”New York Times
…commitment to the role is ferocious…
 Sweeney Todd  “As Sweeney Todd, Mark Delavan, the company’s reigning baritone, is just about the best argument one could make for letting opera singers take on musicals. His commitment to the role is ferocious, and his robust if somewhat dry voice gives as much lyric potency to Todd as one could wish.”Newsday
…superbly open-throated phrasing…
Tosca “The ferocity of Racette’s performance was well matched by that of baritone Mark Delavan as Scarpia, in an interpretation that went well beyond cartoon impressions of lechery to hint at the dark obsessiveness informing the character’s behavior. In his extended soliloquy at the start of Act 2, Delavan let loose with superbly open-throated phrasing, as though Scarpia’s very compulsions were forcing their way into the open.” San Francisco Chronicle
…limitless…
Die Walküre “The range of emotions Mr. Delavan can communicate with his half-divine, half-human voice appears limitless.” Wall Street Journal
