“… one of the best nights of opera stuff I have ever enjoyed–and this includes all the shows I have seen from my 2nd row seat at LA Opera, Opera Bastille, Covent Garden, and Staatsoper Berlin… I don’t think I have seen such consistent and clever character development this side of Broadway legit theater.”
