Reviews

 

 

“Sarasota Opera is giving its audiences … the kind of opera they can’t hear or see anywhere else.”
—John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

 

“Anyone who cares about opera would be unwise to miss an opportunity to see this company at the peak of its powers.”
—Richard Storm, Sarasota Herald Tribune

 

“Performance was carried off with passionate conviction.”
—John Fleming, St. Petersburg Times

 

"Victor DeRenzi's orchestral forces were glorious. They gave support where it was needed, added color and intensity to the action and were so unified in sound that they became a character and voice in the opera itself."

- June LeBell, The Longboat Observer

 

“Vividly conducted and mostly impressive sung Macbeth.”
—Lawrence A. Johnson, Sun Sentinel
