«"Herausragend gut besetzt war der Part des Don Jose mit Costa Latsos, mit überaus überzeugenden stimmlichen Qualitäten."»
(Sudkurier, 22/8/16) (2016)
«"He sang well and acted out his part with spirit, being quite involving in the ultra-romantic and atmospheric Pavilion duet. …Latsos' sophisticat"ed personal style was correct for the part."»
(Opera ~Opera, Sept 2005) (2016)
«“(konstantinos Latsos) does, however, sing opera in fine tenor voice.”»
(Sydney Morning Herald, 11/07/00) (2016)
«“Der zweite Gast im Ensemble ist Konstantinos Latsos als Lord Riccardo Percy, der nicht nur durch sein sympathisches Auftreten sondern vor allem gleich mit seinem geschmackvoll schlank und zugleich kraftvoll gesungenen Tenor für sich einnimmt, mit dem er auch die Spitzentöne seiner Partie und strahlende Strettas beherrscht. Zu einem Höhepunkt der Aufführung gestaltet er im zweiten Akt das zauberhafte Terzett „Fin dall’età più tenera“.”»
