Reviews

 

 

“Highly satisfying, often thrilling production … Sarasota’s 30th Verdi staging is a winner, one for which the company can justifiably be proud.”
—Roy C. Dicks, Classical Voice North America

 

“A small company in a small city is showing a way to the future by believing in the past.”
—William Littler, Toronto Star

 

“Sarasota Opera brings power and pageantry to Verdi’s Jerusalem passionately sung and acted on opening night.”
—Paul Hyde, The Greenville News
