Reviews

Mozart's opera on the Orient Express thrilling

...and the best singer of the bunch, the petit flapper that was Ms. Oropesa, had the best music. The light soprano consistently tossed off high notes and coloratura with ease, and then cleared out emotional space in the touching aria "Endless Grief."
