Review for Phoenix Metropolitan Opera, Phoenix, AZ, USA
Phoenix Opera performances have been some of the finest I have ever attended -- and I have seen many throughout the United States. It is comforting to know that they adhere to the original intent of the composer. I never have to wonder what "interpretation" will greet me in the way of staging: no shock value here. Just a devotion to the music. The singers are always top-flight and the sets are beautiful. The Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix is the perfect spot for their performances as well -- it, too, adds to the ambience of the entire evening. My only complaint is that Phoenix Opera should have more productions every year. The two they do create annually are well worth the ticket price!
