BWW Review: San Diego Opera's MOZART'S COSI FAN TUTTE at San Diego Civic Center

I admire the plucky inventiveness of the San Diego Opera. On an annual budget of roughly three percent of New York’s Metropolitan Opera, it has managed to mount a consistently appealing and entertaining variety of productions, traditional and contemporary, in both good times and plague times. The latter even forcing an excellent performance of a much-edited La bohème in a hockey-rink parking lot with an audience seated in an armada of vehicles. But although it was an enjoyable performance over all, now and then I was glad to be wearing a California-mandated mask so that no one would know I was at the current Civic Center staging of Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte.

BWW Review: LE CABARET DE CARMEN at IN Series

IN Series' 'Le Cabaret de Carmen' is a haunting, beautiful spin on the popular tragedy. It's a unique and thoughtful retelling, with a wonderful cast and production team, and is entrancing from its languid opening to its dramatic finale.
BWW Review: IN Series' L'ENFANCE DU CHRIST a TImely, In-Depth Experience of Berlioz' Brilliance

Directors Steven Scott Mazzola and Timothy Nelson have created a deeply moving, broadly staged version of a piece that was originally designed for the concert hall. In moving the singers throughout the vast, acoustical gem that is the Foundry United Methodist Church, you are surrounded (literally) by actions that are as contemporary as you can possibly imaginea?'and imagine you will.

BWW Review: BUTTERFLY at InSeries At Source

Soprano Amanda Palmeiro, now performing the title role at English language performances of Butterfly for the InSeries, deserves an opera career as sensational as her voice.

The company will bring two performances of this production to Baltimore Theatre Project September 28th and 29th.
BWW Review: In Series' Ambitious THE TALE OF SERSE at Atlas

Rare as it is to hear Handel's opera 'Serse' at all - it was scarcely performed at all for 200 years following its 1738 debut - it's even more unusual to hear it melded to the poetry of Rumi, the Sufi mystic who predated the composer by half a millennium.

Timothy Nelson, a gradute of Peabody conservatory, forged his opera-directing career in Baltimore as founder and head of American Opera Theater (2001-2008).
