Reviews

 

 

“Early Verdi operas are not the greatest, but they offer insight into the mind of the young composer, and Sarasota artistic director Victor DeRenzi should be commended for presenting them … The conductor knows his Verdi and led a better performance than is heard some nights on the world’s major stages.”
—The New York Times

 

“This polished performance reveals the remarkable maturity of its young composer and the finesse which has been bred into the Sarasota Opera tradition.”
—Norman Seigerman, Pelican Press

 

“Sarasota Opera’s production of Oberto, conte di San Bonifacio is a refreshingly unapologetic, stand-and-deliver version, giving full measure to its melodic bounty.”
—Richard Storm, Sarasota Herald Tribune

 

“Victor DeRenzi tradujo la partitura con vigor y claridad de planos … ”
—Roger Steiner, Ópera Actual, Barcelona

 

“Sarasota Opera constitutes an enterprise well worth a pilgrimage from as far away as Toronto, as I discovered to my surprise recently.”
—William Littler, Toronto Star
