REVIEW: Kym Vaitiekus shares his thoughts on MASTER CLASS

Unveiling La Davina: Witness the Power and Passion in every facet of MASTER CLASS. Director Liesel Badorrek did cast Lucia Mastrantone as Maria Callas, but Badorrek must have misplaced Mastrantone during rehearsal and managed to resurrect Callas herself.

Review: SAN DIEGO OPERA'S MADAMA BUTTERFLY at San Diego Civic Center

Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular operas ever written. It has a wonderfully lyrical score, familiar arias and a story that remains compelling even after often heard. San Diego Opera’s most recent production played to a full house on opening night, and under the direction of Jose Maria Condemi the well-chosen cast delivered a performance with impressive emotional depth. Corinne Winters’s convincing portrayal of the naïve 15-year-old Cio-Cio-San brought bravas and enthusiastic applause at curtain call. But her portrayal of innocence exploited meant both bravos and boos over extended applause for tenor Adam Smith’s convincing version of her heartless seducer, Lieutenant Pinkerton.
