"On Friday, I found myself enjoying Barbiere in Norton Hall mostly for the time-honored reasons. This is an opera that succeeds by not taking itself seriously, and while director Kathleen Smith Belcher promised social commentary in her program note, she mostly let the...


"Director Brian Staufenbiel gave the opera a fluid staging on Sean Riley’s set, which employed a series of moveable pieces. A stack of suitcases in the opening scene at Penn Station, along with a succession of arches and banquettes, were all put to use as elements of t...
