Toledo Opera - 2007

“The Toledo Opera’s new production of Carmen, which opened Saturday night in the Valentine Theatre, is the largest and most complex production the company has tackled... It’s also one of, if not the, best productions in the long history of this company... powerful acting and director Lawrence Edelson’s savvy staging heighten the drama of this tempestuous story... the overall effect of (the production) is as powerful and memorable as the namesake character.”
