La bohème


  • Role: Marcello

  • Conducted by Joe Illick

  • Directed by David Lefkowich

  • Fort Worth Opera

  • "The vocal standout for me is Wes Mason's Marcello, with a gorgeous baritone..." -Dallas News

  • “There’s a real satisfaction in seeing the Marcello and Musetta, both sung by young artists I’ve admired at Fort Worth Opera in previous seasons. Baritone Wes Mason knocked me out with his tour-de-force in Jorge Martín’s Before Night Falls, when he was a mere 23 years old. Who knew there was room to improve? But now, only a few years later, he really is a grownup, in full command of his technique and with all his early promise not only fulfilled but enhanced.” -Billevesées

  • “Mason, who greatly impressed as Renaldo Arenas in the FWO world premiere of Jorge Martin’s Before Night Falls, is equally good as the struggling painter, Marcello. He shows just the right blend of outrage and restraint in the café scene when Musetta, his ex, is acting so outrageously to attract his attention.” - TheaterJones

  • “Rodolfo’s three friends –– Marcello, Schaunard, and Colline –– were handsomely sung by baritones Wes Mason and John Boehr and bass Derrick Parker. Their camaraderie seemed genuine and was touching as they made the most of their limited funds and shared what they had.” -Fort Worth Weekly
