just saw SDopera's Barber of Seville. Nice production. Tenor was good, very good for this type of role but voice a tad thin for my taste. Christopher Maltman was monstrous as Figaro and Top Notch Italian Bass Ferrucio Furlanetto kills it as Basilio. last perf is tomorrow, but coming next is Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor. Fresh upcoming Diva in the making Angela Gilbert is in the lead. She's been studying with Joan Sutherland's husband so she's dead serious about stepping up. Richard leech is a fine tenor in the male lead.
