New York Times

"Showed a robust, earthy voice." (2008)

New York Times

"A talented young Baritone...sang with a full-blooded mellifluous voice and nuanced phrasing. (He) sang with plenty of dynamic contrast and fine control. Mr. Parks used his rich, expressive voice." (2008)

Opera News

"Edward Parks Sharpless in one of the evenings highlights, he has a beautiful Baritone voice that is ideally suited to the role, so one hopes that there will be more Sharplesses in his future." (2012)

Opera News

"The most compelling performance of the night was the Marcello of Edward Parks, whose warm, velvety baritone filled the house as he portrayed the frustrations of a passionate man." (2013)

Orlando Sentinel

"But the show belongs to Figaro, the barber...In the role, Edward Parks has commanding stage presence, and his lusty baritone matched the glee on his expressive face." (2013)

Daily Camera

"The corresponding aristocratic "upstairs" couple is no less delightful. Baritone Edward Parks is an imposing presence as the morally bankrupt Count Almaviva. He sings with great authority, both in his many ensembles and his enormous Act III aria." (2014)

The Gazette

"Uniformly excellent performances were distinguished by two absolute gems. Baritone Edward Parks’ Count was stupendous — beautifully sung while calling just the right amount of attention to the confusion and hypocrisy of his “royal highness.” (2014)

Opera Magazine UK

"Also impressive was Edward Parks as the Count, a towering figure gifted with a handsome baritone and sensitive acting prowess, both shown to great effect as he nimbly squeezed every drop of self-examination from his powerful Act 3 aria." (2014)

Opera Today

"As Ford, Edward Parks revealed himself to be a fine Verdian indeed, and boy do we need him now.  His secure technique and imposing, warm delivery were marked by good squall and excellent legato.  His delivery of E sogno was musically potent and dramatically rich." (2016)

"Handsome Edward Parks made the most of his russet-brown baritone in Ford's Act II Narrative."(2016)
