Soprano Lisette Oropesa made a superb company debut as Romilda, the object of both royal brothers' affection, her singing bright and precise (if a bit small-scaled) and her phrasing eloquently to the point.

Vocalists, well-balanced and without ego, gave all-around outstanding performances in a true ensemble event

"Making her San Francisco Opera debut, 2005 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions winner Lisette Oropesa as Romilda displayed a most engaging light soprano with an especially lovely top. The highest notes may not boom out, but their sweetness and fragility cuts right to the heart."
