Reviews

Opera Metro review of Pinafore

“The Troupers do it particularly well this year, top to bottom. The stage action is crisp and efficient under the insightful direction of Emily Trudeau. Some new business, even interesting asides, brought laughs: Sir Joseph never gets the Captain’s name right and Ralph Rackstraw (“the smartest lad in all the fleet”) sits apart from the others and reads…”

Opera Metro Review of Il Mikado

As in H.M.S. Pinafore last season, the cast here is particularly strong. David Richy, as Niccolù, and Brett Kroeger, as Amiam, effortlessly fill the hall with their ebullient sound. Richy’s voice is more evenly placed over his vocal range, giving it a fine sheen; once again Kroeger is totally and delightfully square into the G & S style, both vocally and dramatically, radiant as the sun and moon she sings about. Under the direction of Keith Miller, each creates a believable character, but they also partner well with each other through the many tests their relationship must endure over the course of the opera.
