Madama Butterfly, Wolf Trap Opera
"Arizona Opera gave its Phoenix audience a thoroughly joyous rendition of this lighthearted work."
- Opera Today
"The clarity of what goes on in this production -- the way Mozart's music is played and sung, the manner in which director Tara Faircloth has staged the action, how the unamplified dialogue is easily heard -- is such that you almost have to remind yourself to look up at the captions. ... Faircloth, in her company debut as director, has made sure to keep the simplicity of the story paramount, and not let it get lost amid the stagecraft and special effects."

"An imaginative, absorbing affair."
