I Puritani


A sample of the accolades I Puritani has been receiving in the press:

“It’s rare to be able to hear I Puritani ; it’s rarer still to encounter singing and acting of this stellar quality. Seattle Opera’s production…has what it takes to ignite the audience: first-rate casting…singers of unusual power…full of imposing talent…handsome new sets…sumptuous period costumes…a brilliant orchestra and chorus [that] sang like a battalion of stars. Opera lovers were thinking, ‘it doesn’t get any better than this.’ Go, if you possibly can.”
– Melinda Bargreen, The Seattle Times

“A night to cheer Bellini fans: absolutely splendid music, excellent singers, and a chance to see a rising star tenor. This is Bellini’s most musically resplendent work, a feast of complex melody. There should be no doubt: Bellini advocates will love this Puritani. Those who have not acquired that taste should take this opportunity to hear some absolutely splendid music and view a rising star in [Lawrence] Brownlee.”
– Fred Hauptman, Crosscut.com

“The singing was often rapturous and the capacity audiences responded with loud enthusiasm. Among the pleasures of this production are its theatrical values. Credibility and substance have been lent to the situations that give rise to some of Bellini’s most compelling music, and thus the platforms for glorious singing.”
–R.M. Campbell, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
