Press and reviews
Calgary Opera - Roméo et Juliette:
"Jan van der Hooft‘s physically adept Tybalt was an excellent swordsman (hats off to Fight Director J-P Fournier), and it is evident from his stage bearing that he must have trained extensively to pull off such a demanding role with complete movement acumen. He is a refined lyric tenor now in CO’s Emerging Artist Program and it was clear from this performance he should grow into a wide variety of roles as his career develops."
MetroYouth Opera - Italian Girl in Algiers:
"Van der Hooft seems a rare breed, comfortable with the extraordinarily high tessitura of Rossini's tenor roles; he was efficient with patter and coloratura, but he also showed off an exciting lyricism in the sound that has us curious to hear him in future seasons."
"Jan van der Hooft as Lindoro, Isabella’s long-lost love, gave us some of the most impressive singing of the night..."
