Reviews: Glass’ Appomattox (Washington National Opera)

It perhaps comes as no surprise that King is a natural operatic figure, and Soloman Howard – young, charismatic and vocally imposing with a rumble-the-floorboards bass – does him justice.

More Critical Acclaim

“Bass Soloman Howard was imposing as Douglass/King, with the only real breakout aria in the whole opera…” — Charles T. Downey, The Classical Review, November 15, 2015 “The scene was a triumph for…bass Soloman Howard. Howard’s performance in the second act was suitably noble without feeling clichéd: a significant achievement when approaching such a celebrated real-life figure.” — Seth Colter Walls, The Guardian, November 15, 2015 Read Article: The Washington post Read Article: The Classical Review Read Article: The Guardian
