Fine voices and musical values here far outshine a cliché-ridden production.
Lerner and Loewe’s “lost” musical is a wonderful oddity that should be better known.
Robert Carsen’s 28-year-old production comes to America. It was worth the wait.
Seen here, an old fashioned but endearing musical becomes a Trumpian fantasia.
AVA’s Rusalka—a rare venture into the Slavic repertoire—left a divided impression.
Together, Bernstein’s Kaddish and Rossini’s Stabat Mater made for one of Philadelphia Orchestra’s finest concerts in recent memory.
A charming and unusual song program showcased AVA’s rising group of singers.
Two highly satisfying evenings, more evenly drawn than I had expected.
Ensemble coordination is this production’s greatest achievement, along with some fine individual contributions.
