"Arturo, played by Joshua Baxter, is an interesting role...Although a small role, Baxter with his fine tenor voice, is most believable." Celia Bard - Mark Aspen - https://markaspen.com/2022/10/17/lucia-lam-io/ (2022)

"Joshua Baxter is lyrically elegant as Lucia’s ill-starred bridegroom" - Yehuda Shapiro -The Stage - https://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/lucia-di-lammermoor-review-at-normansfield-theatre-teddington-from-valeria-perboni (2022)

"The tenor Joshua Baxter’s exquisitely sung Cobbler", Keith Potter, Opera Magazine June 2017 (2017)

"As Lensky, Onegin’s best and seemingly only friend whom he ends up killing in a duel, Josh Baxter could not have been bettered either for his glorious tenor singing especially in his second act aria and for his realistic acting." Alan Cooper- University of Aberdeen (2013)

"For singing alone, Josh Baxter as Tamino was not far behind – and his role was far more extensive. His fabulous tenor tones never faltered for a moment, illuminating the entire production." Alan Cooper- University of Aberdeen (2012)

"Carmen was nicely matched in her performance by that of Don Jose. Josh Baxter is a genuine operatic tenor with I reckon a remarkable future ahead of him. Somebody told me he is only nineteen, but what a voice! La fleur que tu m’avais jetée was gloriously sung." Alan Cooper- University of Aberdeen (2011)
