ADA triumphs at Fort Worth Opera: Lysistrata, Nozze di Figaro and Three Decembers
Scott Scully brings ardor, and an appealingly tangy tenor, to the part of her lover, Nico.”
“Michael Mayes supplies a gorgeous, creamy baritone for another Athenian, Kinesias.”
“Seth Mease Carico sports a brassily virile bass-baritone for the Spartan leader Leonidas.”
“Rucker and (Jamie Rose) Guarrine also double in the roles of Ares (God of War) and Aphrodite (Goddess of Love), and steal the show while bringing the opera to its conclusion as well as tying a bow on the machina subplot.”
Le Nozze Di Figaro
“Vocally, Andrea Carroll steals the production with her role as Figaro’s betrothed. Susanna, handmaiden to the Countess and lust object of the Count, is scheming, devious and intensely loyal to her future husband. Carroll adds a natural sense of humor in all three in what became a very physical role.” -Theater Jones
“Still, wonderful as the rest of the cast was, soprano Andrea Carroll deservedly won the applause-o-meter as Susanna, having opened the show (and set the tone for the subsequent hijinks) on all fours with her rear facing the audience.” -Front Row, D Magazine
“An offstage orchestra — two pianos, percussion, five strings and three wind players under Christopher Larkin’s direction — sets a moody atmosphere with generally understated sounds.” - Star-Telegram
“Not only was the chamber orchestra an integral part of the opera, it was a joy to listen to on its own merit.” -Everyday Opera
