I almost hate to post this glowing review of St. Petersburg Opera’s Pagliacci by Kurt Loft since the two remaining performances are sold out. But the review is too good not to share:
The company’s new production of ‘Pagliacci’ is an understated gem, a chamber opera that delivers a palpable impact from principal singers and orchestra under Sforzini’s concise direction. Even with a limited budget and the small Palladium stage, the company made a big statement about playing to the heart of this endearing work, capturing both its comic elements and the grittiness of late 19th-century verismo. – Kurt Loft.
Saint Petersburg Opera will return to the Palladium starting in October with a full-season of great performances and the theater will be back to full capacity, so we won’t have to turn people away.
Stay tuned for a full schedule of grand opera at the Palladium starting in October of 2021. For more info visit https://stpeteopera.org/
