More about Argirio at teatro NuovoIt's still thrilling to relive our first season, and we can with the review just issued by Gay City News! And check out some of the praise for the company and singers in all of this past summer's titles!

"What we did hear was full of exciting promise and enriched the listener with a combination of musical scholarship and sheer beauty."

"She lavished a velvety and luscious full lyric soprano voice on Medea’s low-lying expressive declamation...Jennifer Rowley rose to powerful authority in Medea’s Act II invocation to vengeful demons “Antica Notte."

"The two tenors were contrasted: Derrek Stark as Giasone (the Nozzari role) sang with a bright and firm tenor in broad declamatory phrases that had a golden gleam that matched his glittery gold lamé dinner jacket. The silvery tenore di grazia of Mingjie Li as Jason’s rival King Egeo nimbly executed the florid writing and high notes with ease. The ill-fated Princess Creusa, who has ditched Egeo to become Giasone’s second wife, also is a high coloratura in contrast with her rival, the darkly dramatic Medea. Creusa’s vocal line is delicate and artfully decorated. Teresa Castillo’s pure coloratura soprano communicated mournful pathos and deep foreboding but also delivered the vocal gymnastics with brilliance. Young artists Elena Snow, Christopher Bozeka, and baritone William Lee Bryan, Baritone as King Creonte gave solid support."

"Tamara Mumford’s Tancredi in the original Venice version was more the lyrical and reflective lover than ballsy bravura warrior. Mumford’s oboe-like tone is mournful and moving, especially in long-lined cantilena....Her alternate in “Tancredi Rifatto” was the rising young mezzo-soprano Aleks Romano, mezzosoprano. Her Tancredi was more the warrior and bravura bel canto technician. Romano’s rounded tone possessed a brilliant ring from top to bottom and she attacked the machine gun coloratura with commanding gusto."

"As the falsely accused Amenaide, young coloratura soprano Amanda Woodbury confirmed the fine impression she made at the Metropolitan Opera as Juliette and Leila in 'Les Pêcheurs de Perles.' She sang her arias with cool precision and blended beautifully in thirds in duet with Mumford. The 'Rifatto' alternate Amenaide, newcomer Christine Lyons, was a revelation. Woodbury took an instrumental approach to Amenaide’s music while Lyons’ quick vibrato and complex timbre brought greater emotional immediacy to Amenaide’s conflict between duty and desire. Both sopranos handled the florid passages with musicianship and flair."

"As Amenaide’s aggrieved father Argirio, Santiago Ballerini lavished gleaming, golden tenor tone and frank emotionalism on the music more suitable to Bellini or Donizetti than Rossini. In 'Tancredi Rifatto,' David Margulis, Tenor brought a lighter, more dulcet-toned Rossini tenor to Arigirio’s less florid, more heroic replacement arias."
