In Review: Trevino proves an “excellent” Sparafucile in Vancouver “Rigoletto”

“Matthew Treviño as Sparafucile and Carolyn Sproule as Maddalena were excellent as the sinister brother and sister with their humanizing touches; the former with his perverse professional pride and the latter with her weakness for a handsome young nobleman. Mr Treviño possesses a fine bass voice and sang with authority throughout, including his spot-on low note upon exiting his early encounter with Rigoletto. Ms Sproule displayed a pliable mezzo voice and was convincing as a floozy ‘with a heart’. Both she and Mr Treviño proved gratifyingly natural actors.” -Vancouver Classical Music

“Matthew Treviño and Carolyn Sproule made a wonderfully sexy pair as Sparafucile and Maddalena, tearing up the stage with relish. Treviño clearly relished the part, striding around in leather trousers and tossing out resonant low Fs.”
