Opera News reviews Birsan, Outlaw, and Moran in Madison Opera's "Roméo et Juliette"


"Soprano Emily Birsan possibly achieved the finest work yet seen from this young singer. Her voice was bright and glittering in the coloratura of “Je veux vivre” and she displayed surprising body in her middle register for the potion aria. Juliette’s developmental arc from buoyant teen to tragic heroine was capitally rendered. The pair blended delightfully in the score’s unusual bounty of four extended duets.

Sidney Outlaw essayed a mischievously animated Mercutio, with a lovely lyric baritone to match. The “Mab” aria was adorable. . . Liam Moran vocalized Frère Laurent sonorously." -Opera News Read full review.
