Emma Barclay, former Lady Macduff of the project when it was touring the country last year and a guest on the evening, took over and delivered the role and ensemble track flawlessly and seemingly off book. The show went on to be an electric and sexually charged revisitation of the tragedy.

Some are old works, some are new, some are individual performers, some are ensembles, some are complete productions, some are merely the highlight of an evening, most are domestic, a few are foreign. In any case, as the new decade begins, I recall that these are the vocal highlights that made my heart beat a little faster and made me look forward to the year ahead.
