Reviews

"The singing was as good – if not better – than what you’d expect to hear at the average Canadian Opera Company performance."

 

"Jay Lambie’s performance reminded of a younger version of the great Luciano Pavarotti...The musical performances will blow you away while the comedic interludes will leave you laughing and smiling throughout the show."

 

"Highlights of the TOR production include the gorgeous, smouldering sounds of Pablo Benitez Astudillo’s Camille de Rosillon...Caroline Colantonio’s Valencienne is a beautifully rendered and subtly demure counterpart"

 

"loved the production and couldn’t believe two and half hours had gone by so quickly"

 

"Community opera at its best"

 

"I have one word - WOW"
