“DeRenzi, one of our finest Verdi conductors … ”

—Lawrence Johnson, Sun-Sentinel


“The production expresses what this repertory company does best. The package includes strong principal singers, lavish sets and costumes, a sharp chorus and choreography, and a resilient pit orchestra under the baton of music director Victor DeRenzi.”
—Kurt Loft, Tampa Tribune


“Maestro Victor DeRenzi led the performance with a sure hand, shaping Verdi’s score with love and underlining the drama with vigor, precision, and an excellent sense of balance.”
—John Koopman, L’Opera (Milan, Italy)
