These fun, accessible works are the perfect introduction to anyone new to the art form, and are sure to live up to the expectations of any veteran opera-goer.

The singing was uniformly powerful and persuasive, never neglecting the humor of the text in either opera. If I have a carp of any kind, it’s that the venue — a vast, cold hall at Occidental College — is more suited to dispensing diplomas than opera. The fine twenty-six member orchestra, under Joshua Horsch’s direction, was tucked in behind the set and sometimes muffled. But that qualification seems minor given a program of joyous music, splendidly executed in every department.
