Reviews

 

“In a rousing performance Saturday night, the Sarasota Opera opened its 1995 season with a riveting production awash with typically Verdian drama and a lush melodic score.”
—Florence Fisher, Sarasota Herald Tribune

 

“From the noble and majestic overture to the final notes of the exultant finale, DeRenzi’s conducting and spirit meld the varying elements of this towering and dramatic score into an evening of inspiring instrumentality, coruscating vocal brilliance and uplifting and transcendent emotion.”
—Kenneth Blount, Venice Gondolier

 

“For Verdi fans, this mounting of Nabucco is a ‘must-see’ event.”
—Virginia Page, Bradenton Herald
