My third time to see a Pacific Opera Project production. As before, we had a great time. The musical talent in this small company is more than I ever would have expected - professional and sophisticated. My favorite was the trouser-role of Cherubino - the woman who played him was truly funny and had a great voice. The new venue was an improvement also. One unfortunate thing is that there were problems with the super-titles. This was also true at The Barber of Seville. Please, POP, fix the machine!
The casts include LeRoy Villaneuva (Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Winner) & Ryan Thorn (previously POP’s Sweeney Todd and Don Giovanni) as Figaro, Katherine Giaquinto & Sara Duchovnay as Susanna, Daniel Scofield & Luvi Avendano as Count Almaviva, Megan Vail & Bridgette Gan as the Countess, Elizabeth Rigby Jones & Julia Aks as Cherubino, E. Scott Levin as Bartolo, Julia Metzler & Stephanie Sadownick as Marcellina, Steven Vail & Jon Lee Keenan as Basilio/Curzio, Tim Campbell as Antonio and Ariel Downs & Emma Grace Dunbar as Barbarina.
The Marriage of Figaro will be designed and directed by Josh Shaw with music directed by Stephen Karr. The opera will be presented with orchestral ensemble, and conducted by Stephen Karr from the continuo harpsichord. The opera will be sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.
