Vocalist - Baritone
Opera review: Owen Wingrave
"Matthew Worth, in the title role, portrays the young pacifist with all the necessary fortitude and stoic courage one expects from such a character, and his fine, bright baritone expresses the most poetic lines in what is otherwise a fairly dry and serious opera."

Owen Wingrave at Chicago Opera Theater
"The title character, convincingly played and sung by baritone Matthew Worth, is heir to a military tradition he detests; the war he has to fight is the battle for peace, waged entirely at home."

Roy C. Dicks, Raleigh News & Observer

"Asked to identify his biggest challenge as an artist thus far, Worth names Shrike, the demonic editor in Miss Lonelyhearts. 'He's just so evil, so horrible to everyone, that the rehearsal process was very taxing. I'd come home at night, look in the mirror and think, I can't believe this creep is coming out of me. Then I'd go into fetal position. But I have to admit, once the show was up, it felt so good to be so bad.'" Read More...

"'People worry a lot about classical music and opera these days, but I don't feel any sense of doom. All the performers my age know what the odds are in this business. But we all love it too much to do anything else. And if we love it, who's to say that we won't be able to persuade more people to love it, too?'" Read More...
