Mtzo Martinez Opera, Inc.
August 17, 2009

As volunteer I was treated with dignity and respect. The staff is of the highest caliber. More so the performance I was able to enjoy was far beyond my expectations and was a first class opera performance.

Mtzo Martinez Opera, Inc.
July 19, 2009

I attended the 2008 perfromance of M. Butterfly on a lark - I had a friend who got me in as a ticketer. I am originally from New York and have attended numerous live performances at the Metropolitan Opera House there. So when I saw M. Butterfly in Martinez I wasn't sure what to expect. Since I didn't pay for it, whatever it was would have been OK. Instead what I saw and heard made me feel like I was again at a professional opera house. While it is a small company relying on many volunteers and local supporters, the producers really know talent and so there were some of the finest young voices in opera right here in Martinez. Also the small but professional orchestral group was as good as the singers. Actually I was amazed. From my standpoint there is nothing to be critical about in any negative sense. I thought the performance was easily worth spending $50 for. (Note - the last time I went to the Met I spent $110 for an orchestra seat - and that was 20 or 30 years ago. Of course in the wonderful MTZ H.S. performance center every seat is an orchestra seat! Mr. Leslie SPaiser
