Joanne Sydney Lessner
Opera News, October 2016

The energetic cast goes the extra mile to deliver full-blooded, picturesque characterizations. As Fiorina and Carletto, Carolina Lippo and Francesco Castoro make a pair worth rooting for. Her juicy soprano and his tremulous, heart-on-sleeve tenor give them such strong chemistry that their union seems inevitable, although her dominance is never in doubt. Lippo is a feisty force to be reckoned with, especially in her dialogue, but her buoyant coloratura keeps her sweetness front and center. In the title role, Domenico Colaianni consistently opts for character over flash, leaving one to marvel secondarily at his verbal virtuosity. © 2016 Opera News Read complete review
