"Weston Hurt gave the strongest performance of the evening as Giorgio Germont, Alfredo’s father. Hurt was obviously given the vocal gift of a gorgeous baritone, which is golden, weighty, and clear. His performance was faultlessstylistically on the money, dramatically committed, and displaying a vocalism that was perfectly even from the top to the bottom of his range." Opera News
