Justin Hopkins: The Impossible Dream

Justin Hopkins
American bass-baritone Justin Hopkins burst onto the international opera scene in 2010, performing the combined roles of Il Servo, Il Medico and Heraldo in Macbeth with Le Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels.  He was praised as having "created something very beautiful with the role" and the production was awarded "Production of the Year" by Opernwelt.  In the same season Hopkins performed the roles of Colline in La Boheme with the Verbier Festival Academy and Cappadocian in Salome under the direction of Valery Gergiev with the Verbier Festival Orchestra in Switzerland.

During the 2010-2011 season, he will perform Frère Laurent Romeo et Juliette with Opera Company of Philadelphia as well as in Philip Glass' Hydrogen Jukebox with Fort Worth Opera.

Here is a handheld video of Hopkins singing "The Impossible Dream" at a performance of "Heeere's Tony" at the Act II Playhouse last week.
