Two reviews in Opera magazine
Opera magazine (based in London) published my reviews of Portland Opera's Cinderella and Carmen in the February issue. The magazine is available at Portland's Central Library in the magazine and newspaper room. On the cover of the magazine is Plácido Domingo as Oreste in the Met production of Iphigénie en Tauride. This was the production that originated in Seattle and then moved to the Met with Domingo and Susan Graham as the two biggest names. Reviewing for Opera, Martin Bernheimer stated that "The ensemble in New York was more stellar, possibly less well integrated, than that in Seattle."
