"Joseph Dennis was in his Role Debut as the virtue-seeking prince just as convincing, The pronunciation of the young American tenor was outstanding."
"The des Grieux of Joseph Dennis was so ardent that the opera might have been named after him. His tenor is gaining an appealing baritonal overlay as he matures, yet he ably finessed a delicately floated head voice for 'En fermant les yeux.' His 'Ah! Fuyez douce image' was excellent."
“[Winner] tenor Joseph Dennis … sang with expressive elegance in ‘Salut, demeure chaste et pure’ from Gounod’s ‘Faust.’”
