“From the pulsing pace of its opening scenes - credit to director Brad Dalton - to the appealing performances of the key singers, this ‘Il Trovatore’ was a strong one. The chorus turned in some fine ensemble acting – neatly choreographed by Dalton – while singing with lusty commitment.” - Richard Scheinin, San Jose Mercury News

“I appreciated stage director Brad Dalton’s approach, which gave full expression to the brutality that reigned over the opera’s medieval world, including a gory scene of prisoner torture.” - Michael J. Vaughn, Operaville
