Thurman brings "bright, facile sound" to Florentine "La bohème"


“Katrina Thurman brought a bright, facile sound to the role of Musetta, along with the theatrical depth to create a character that was both insufferable in her behavior and deeply loyal and compassionate with her friend Mimi.” - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “All four principals and the two comprimario players harmonized throughout under the watch of conductor Joseph Rescigno and stage director William Florescu. ... Katrina Thurman makes an attractive Musetta, but Thurman and Florescu chose to accent her cleverness and force of personality rather than her flirty sexuality. She's brisk and clear in her singing and acting and not at all kittenish. She knows the score and plays by her own rules; I like this Musetta a lot, and I like Thurman.” -Tom Strini Writes
