More about our 2015 festival
"This Lulu unexpectedly came to life and scored a magnificent success... The decision to produce the opera in Oakland's abandoned 16th Street train station was a masterstroke... It is difficult to imagine wanting more from a Lulu than what soprano Emma McNairy presented. "
"Monumentally memorable... superbly realized ... coloratura Emma McNairy was the sexiest and most vocally agile Lulu imaginable. "
"Exuberant... superb... ebullient... joy and drama mingle ... the only thing missing from this undertaking waas any sense of constraint or formality... the view of liberation informing this Ulysses is one that can serve as model for performers of all stripes."
