"From her Mama Rose-style entrance up the aisle, Victoria Livengood imbued Mme. Flora with her wonted theatrical energy. Her barrelhouse contralto suits the role's scary moments; but, admirably, she brought legato-based soft tone to quieter passages, furnishing welcome...

"I was very pleasantly surprised with two other singers who were just as extraordinary in their roles. Victoria Livengood almost stole the show from her younger colleagues. Our dear "Dixie Diva" veteran, a North Carolina native with 80 roles in her repertory, who sang...
