Opera News hails Parks, Biller, and McIntyre in review of Des Moines Metro Opera's season!
"Handsome Edward Parks made the most of his beautiful russet-brown baritone in Ford’s Act II narrative [Falstaff]. . . Susannah Biller’s lovely lyric soprano made for a comely, sympathetic Eurydice [Orphée et Eurydice]; no doubt several men in the audience would have braved hell for her. . . Kristine McIntyre’s meticulously crafted production of Massenet’s Manon was graced by a brace of principals who displayed extraordinary dramatic commitment. . . .This Manon was the most cogent mounting of Massenet’s opera on the regional market in memory, and would have made an ideal introduction to the art form for anyone." -Opera News
