Reivew of Portland Opera's Albert Herring in Opera magazine

My review of Portland Opera's production of Albert Herring (March 14) is in this month's issue of Opera magazine.

This issue contains Bernard Jacobson's interview with Speight Jenkins, who is beginning his 25th season as general director of Seattle Opera. Jenkins brings up the fact that American audience prefer traditional costumes for most operas, and that increases the cost of producing operas. If he could have a little more leeway in costumes (modern vs. period), then that would help the bottom line.
