“Best of all was sopranoBirsan, whose exquisitely floated tones above the staff provided the most beautiful vocal moments of the evening in her enchanting portrayal of the title role.”Opera News

“The spry-voiced sopranoEmily Birsanwas a delightful and streetwise Susanna, and her skeptical look of disgust toward the slimier male characters brought the house down in laughter more than once... all that needed to be communicated was written on her face.”The Boston Globe (The Marriage of Figaro)

"Jonathan Tetelman, fresh from his last minute performance at Tanglewood's "La Boheme" in July - where his Rodolfo was all you could ask for - shined even more here...his voice (at age 28, mind you) promises that this is just the beginning of what may be a great career, and definitely a tenor to pay attention to." -Operawire(Il Duca)

"The real treat, however, came in the Duke sung by the tenorJonathan Tetelman, memorable as a last-minute replacement for Piotr Beczala in Tanglewood's concert performance of "La Boheme" last month. I was lucky to catch him then, and it was even better seeing him up close in a small theater: The guy's a total star. He provided one of the show's highlights: "La donna e mobile," delivered in a shiny space-cape that would have made David Bowie jealous." -NY Times

"Sunday's matinee was dominated by the remarkable performance ofEthan Simpsonas De Rocher...singing with a strong voice and bringing searing dramatic intensity to the role...Ethan Simpson is clearly a gifted artist we will be hearing more from." -Chicago Classical Review

"The most completely realized performance came fromEthan Simpson... As the jealous Count di Luna, he deployed flawless legato in "Il balen del suo sorisso", Luna’s fervent paean to lady-in-waiting Leonora, capping the aria with an exquisite high G that seemed to float in the air for several minutes" -Broadstreet Review
