Roman Trekel is an effective Count. He sings with some real menace, reminding you that he is the villain of the piece, and not just a smooth baritone singing prettily.
Emily Magee is paired well as Countess, holding onto her dignity with desperation. Patricia Risley is a good Cherubino, upon whom the most slap-stick moments of this production are displaced. Other roles are also well sung, including Kwangchul Youn’s Bartolo. The luxuriousness of the casting is suggested by having Peter Schreier sing Don Basilio.
