"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 faultless — stylistically on the money, dramatically committed, and displaying a vocalism that was perfectly even from the top to the bottom of his range." Opera News
Weston's Germont continues to receive critical acclaim, with OperaClick calling his voice "rich in timbre and expressive intensity...a true Verdi baritone." The Seattle Times praised his "resonance and warmth" while Bachtrack applauded his "fine sense of humanity, firm legato, and silken pianissimi." The Stranger raved, "Hurt as Alfredo's bougie dad was just plain awesome."
