Audience praise for Le nozze di Figaro (spring 2011)

“It was such a fine evening! … it had the perfect combination of music and story and laughter.”

“We were really impressed with the quality of the singing, the personalities of each player, the effort they threw into their work. It was just great!”

“Last night was excellent! Thank you for getting such a great group together and giving us opera that we can actually afford.”

“I enjoyed it immensely… The English subtitles made the production very accessible for newbies like me. I [was] highly entertained every minute from start to finish.”

“You managed to bring the opera alive: it was great fun, and well sung!”

“Your performance was exquisite. My father absolutely loved it. He is and has been a HUGE fan of opera his entire life… you even brought him to tears several times during the show (and my father DOES NOT cry!).”
