This was an excellent production of a very interesting opera. The voices were very good. The set and staging were inventive and quite interesting. This Opera Company is doing more and more interesting things. Go.

Walking into the hall is like entering a central Europe dream world. So beautiful. The opera was fine, professional voices, clever production, terrific orchestra. We loved the crowd too, the classic opera scene of suits, some bowties, fine dresses, jazzy jewels; this is the place...More
