Reviews

 

 

“…musically solid and sung with vitality by a strong cast of principals... The end effect is a tightly woven package full of theatrical flair and bold lyricism.”                    

– Kurt Loft, The Tampa Tribune

 

“…a production that excites the audience to quite a frenzy… high energy levels and carefully executed technical excellence from all hands…”           

– Virginia Page, The Bradenton Herald

 

“With four excellent singers in the principal roles, it was a model of operatic art.”

– John Fleming, Tampa Bay Times

 

“…an admirable performance.”
