Welsh National Opera - Tosca - Scarpia

“As for Scarpia, American Mark S Doss was quite brilliant in the role - which is undoubtedly one of the greatest in opera. A strong punchy baritone, he chewed up the stage with an elegant but menacing flamboyance - at times fastidious, at times revelling in his forthcoming conquest - not to mention a suitably louche silk morning coat. He was overall the best Scarpia I have seen performed live, mixing beauty with brutality.”

- Bournemouth Echo, Will Framptonzum Text

"Mark S Doss, however, is spot-on as Scarpia, avarice and evil wrapped up in swagger, menace and dangerous charm."

- The Times, Rebecca Frankszum Text

Mark S Doss is a highlight, relishing in playing up the villainous Scarpia. Mellifluous and prowling, he cuts an unnerving figure as he stalks around Tosca with increasing lust, matched by his deep and rich bass-baritone. On occasion in productions of Tosca, the orchestra can overpower, but here the singers are all well matched and in Mark S Doss’s case, soars in his spine-tingling and sinister Act 1 closer, Te Deum.

- The Reviews Hubzum Text

Mark S Doss sang Scarpia with pleasing depth of character beyond the thuggish villain he can sometimes be. This was a scheming, manipulative and cruel chief of police who delighted in tormenting Tosca during her lover's torture while simultaneously carving a ham. His tall, upright figure and measured but striking tone more often hinted at great power rather than trying to dominate the stage through mere volume, and the result was something quite menacing.

- Bachtrack, Rohan Shottonzum Text


Dorset Opera Festival - Macbeth - Macbeth

Mark S Doss gave a thrilling Macbeth: his bass-baritone powered relentlessly through the music, showing ease at both ends of the voice, the bottom fruity and the top packing a real punch, while his sense of line was both authoritative and delicate. His psychological portrayal was also well-developed; face creased in paranoia in the second act, his eyes glittering with madness like the jewels in his crown − no ghost appeared on stage, the apparition presumably a figment of Macbeth’s splintering psyche. Doss captured the character’s development, from the first spark of ambition to his dismissal of his wife’s suicide, with exciting dramatic intensity. This was an ideal portrayal of the role.

- Dominic Lowe, Bachtrackzum Text

David Phipps-Davis’s Macbeth was well served by Grammy Award winner Mark S Doss in the title role. A rich bass-baritone and powerful stage presence gave us a Macbeth to reckon with. 

- Express, Clare Colvinzum Text

I don’t know whether it’s more my fault or his, but he is new to me, and clearly a major artist. Whatever charisma is, he has it to spare, looks marvellous, acts powerfully and has the most impressive bass-baritone voice I have come across in years. 

- The Spectator, Michael Tannerzum Text

 "The impressive American bass-baritone Mark S. Doss was a secure, vocally imposing Macbeth." 

- Ashutosh Khandekarm, Opera Now


Royal Opera House London - Cavalleria Rusticana - Alfio

"Mark S. Doss convincingly cast aside the relaxed confidence which Alfio displays when he rolls into town with a car boot full of fashionable wares - the tussle between two girls who fancy the same handbag is a neat touch - for dark-toned menace when he learns of Lola’s betrayal.”

- Opera Today, Claire Seymourzum Text

"Mark S Doss’s impetuous Alfio"

- Culture Whisper

"Mark S. Doss a rough and ready Alfio"

- Mark Ronanzum Text

"Mark S Doss gives Alfio genuine bite”

- The Stage, George Hallzum Text

"Alfio were each skilfully characterised”

- Independent, Michael Churchzum Text

"and bass Mark S Doss is an implacable Alfio”

- The Express

"Mark S Doss’s wide-boy Alfio offer sturdy support"

- The Guardian, Erica Jealzum Text

"I hope Mark S. Doss will not mind me saying how much he reminded me of Barack Obama and he was a potent Alfio."

- Seen and heard International, Jim Pritchardzum Text


San Diego Opera - Rusalka - Vodnik

“Her extraordinary performance (Renée Fleming) was effectively complemented by Mark S. Doss, whose rich basso cantante ennobled the paternal warnings of Vodník, the sepulchral Water Gnome.”

- The Los Angeles Times, Martin Bernheimer


Comunale Bologna - Peter Grimes - Balstrode

Noto in Italia e in particolare a Bologna, Mark S.Doss, Balstrode più giovanile ed energico del consueto, sonoro e di ragguardevole presenza.

- Silvano Capecchi, Opera Clickzum Text

The other parts have been intelligently cast. Mark S. Doss was a robust Balstrode armed with a strapping voice and sparkling diction

- James Imam, Bachtrackzum Text


Opera Frankfurt - Mefistofele - Mefistofele

"As Mefistofele, Mark S. Doss is so charismatic he may change your mind about an ultimate destination in the afterlife. In total command, Doss raises hell with his raven-black voice and titillates with his balletic presence (gamely donning Mae West drag in a switcheroo with Helen of Troy)."

- The London Financial Times, Larry L. Lash


Comunale Bologna - The Flying Dutchman - The Dutchman

 “Mark S. Doss books a Dutchman of great stature, to the noble foundation. One hears a powerful reserve that never deploys gratuitously, instead cultivating the art of nuance while in the service of the drama, with a refined sensibility, infinitely worthy, he makes the title role a positive character, in accordance with the staging.”

- ANACLASE, Bertrand Bolognesi
