“The production’s strongest fusion of vocal and dramatic strength comes from William Gorton as Edgardo, the tragedy’s other victim. His presence is virile, his voice is big and true, and his gestures, expressions and movements follow the basic rule that Shakespeare laid down in ‘Hamlet’: "Suit the action to the word.." -- Leo Stutzin, The Modesto Bee
“Gorton was a marvel as Don José. He gives the role a truly tragic stature rather than the irresponsible loser that character can sometimes appear. His voice is strong, well-nuanced and communicative.” -- Sherman Spencer, The Stockton Record
"William, You were wonderful in the role of Rodolfo - our audiences were totally captivated. Many members of our orchestra and audience were moved to tears during your performance. Cheers!" -- Joyce Johnson-Hamilton, Diablo Symphony
