Read what the press has said about the stars of the production.
“[Nicole] Cabell, with her creamy sound and poised line, effectively conveyed her character's pathos and resolve, and she was warmly applauded.”–Chicago Tribune
“The tenor Ben Bliss is wonderful as Ferrando, with an ideally sweet voice and boyish earnestness.”–The New York Times
"Ferruccio Furlanetto...combines the dramatic range and mutability of a true character actor with a uniquely ravishing vocal endowment." –Opera News
Best friends Guglielmo and Ferrando are so convinced of their fiancées’ devotion that they’re willing to gamble on it, disguising themselves as strangers to test the women’s fidelity.
