Jonathan Johnson

American Operatic Tenor

Candide, Des Moines Metro Opera

"Tenor Jonathan Johnson is arguably the finest Candide of my experience... I have never heard the added aria 'Nothing More Than This' more heart wrenchingly presented, all limpid tonal production and exquisitely poised sentiment."
