La Traviata with Opera Theatre of the Rockies:

“Matching Annamarie [Zmolek’s Violetta] with musical and theatrical impact was baritone Jacob Lassetter as Germont, the father of her lover Alfredo…Lassetter's powerful presence and unrelenting commitment to the musical genius of Verdi made the Act II encounter between the courtesan and himself, the most stunning part of this Traviata. It was a treat anytime our baritone appeared on stage.” 

David Sckolnik – COLORADO SPRINGS GAZETTE

“As Giorgio Germont, the father that comes between them, Jacob Lassetter has a commanding stage presence and a ringing, authoritative tone.”

Mark Arnest – COLORADO SPRINGS GAZETTE

 Baritone Jacob Lassetter made Alfredo’s father, Germont, less a caricature of bourgeois stuffiness and more a figure of understandable dignity, even sympathetic.”

 Così fan tutte with the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra:

 “Baritone Jacob Lassetter was gleefully misogynistic as Don Alfonso.”

 Mary Ellyn Hutton – MUSIC IN CINCINNATI

 Carmina Burana with the San Antonio Mastersingers:

 "[Jacob] Lassetter's warm, vibrato-flecked baritone was properly tipsy in the tavern songs and effectively switched sonic gears in the alternating octave passages of ‘Dies, nox et omnia.’"
