BWW Reviews: An Uneven SWEENEY TODD Opens Virginia Opera Company's 40th Season
by Benjamin Tomchik - Oct 15, 2014

When Stephen Powell's Sweeney Todd lunges at the audience in vengeful anger declaring, "No ones in the chair, come on! Come on! Sweeney's waiting, I want you bleeders," It's hard to think of anything more thrilling. And yet, Powell's performance along with a glorious 28 piece orchestra only partially makes-up for the Virginia Opera Company's rather uneven production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

The Houston Grand Opera Announces 60th Anniversary Season, Featuring World Premiere of A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Iain Bell and More
by BWW News Desk - Aug 27, 2014

Houston Grand Opera's 2014‚Äď15 season, the company's 60th anniversary season, includes the world premiere of A Christmas Carol by Iain Bell‚ÄĒthe company's 55th new commission ‚ÄĒfrom award-winning Dickens authority Simon Callow; the continuation of HGO's first Ring cycle, with the American premiere of La Fura dels Baus's groundbreaking take on Die Walk√ľre; the American premieres of Sir Nicholas Hytner's The Magic Flute and Lee Blakeley's Sweeney Todd; a 60th Anniversary Gala Concert featuring mezzo-soprano (and HGO Studio alumna) Joyce DiDonato; and a host of career-shaping role debuts that speak to Patrick Summers's gift for casting. Together with the company's first presentation of John Cox'sOtello, and the returns of G√∂ran J√§rvefelt's beloved Cos√¨ fan tutte and Michael Grandage's hit staging of Madame Butterfly, these rich offerings serve once again to illustrate some of the ways that HGO‚ÄĒstill the only opera company with two Grammys, two Emmys, and a Tony‚ÄĒepitomizes ‚Äúone model of what a forward-looking opera company could be‚ÄĚ (Greg Sandow, Arts Journal).

The Houston Grand Opera Closes Its 2013-2014 Season with THE PASSENGER
by BWW News Desk - Jul 31, 2014

Houston Grand Opera capped a financially and artistically successful 2013‚Äď14 season by presenting Mieczyslaw Weinberg's The Passenger ‚ÄĒthe Polish-Jewish composer's long-suppressed Holocaust opera‚ÄĒto wide acclaim at New York's Park Avenue Armory as part of the Lincoln Center Festival, July 10‚Äď13. Earlier this year, HGO gave the American premiere of the work in Houston with the same cast. There was special praise for the production and performances, conducted by HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers. New York magazine described David Pountney's staging as ‚Äúa multi-story set so vivid you can practically smell the machine oil and coal smoke,‚ÄĚ while the Financial Times said: ‚ÄúThe production, imported from Houston, is imposing in every way.‚ÄĚ The New York Times called the cast ‚Äúflawless,‚ÄĚ adding: ‚ÄúThe conductor, Patrick Summers, drew a surging, textured, richly detailed performance of this challenging score (lasting three hours) from the inspired musicians of the Houston Grand Opera.‚ÄĚ WQXR's Operavore summed up the import of the performances: ‚ÄúThe Passenger shows how a Holocaust opera can hold the stage while examining important, complex issues‚ÄĒand could certainly point the way for future composers to deal with such important but delicate subject matter.‚ÄĚ
