"If it starts to sound like Falstaff is eclipsed by some of the surrounding players in this opera (Gordon Getty's PlumJack), it's certainly through no fault of Lester Lynch and his impressive, appropriately weighty baritone."
" Lester Lynch was a pleasure to hear as Lescaut. Mr. Lynch has a ravishing, rolling baritone with power to spare, and excellent hook-up from top to bottom. His assured vocalizing was impressive and welcome."
"Lester Lynch gave a great performance as Amonasro, Ethiopia's king and Aida's father. He was so commanding a presence as a prisoner of war in the Triumphal Scene it was surprising no one suspected he was no ordinary prisoner."
The Pittsburgh Tribune - Review
