“I don't recall the last time I witnessed an opera audience connect with a comedy so immediately and with such sustained, wide-eyed enthusiasm as MOT's opening night crowd did Friday. Matter of fact, both the onstage doings and the audience's bubbly response were more suggestive of Broadway than opera...much of it in brilliant duets for Nemorino and Adina - the vivacious and vocally agile soprano Ailyn Perez.”
Lawrence B Johnson, The Detroit News
