"dell’Arte serves as a training ground for rising young singers, and the vocal performances here spoke well for its efforts." James Oestreich, NYTimes

Superconductor
Allegri con Fuoco

"dell'Arte Opera Ensemble   is doing its best to brighten the doldrums of August
with a wonderfully involving production of Monteverdi’s final opera

L’Incoronazione di Poppea . . . dell’Arte provides extensive language and
musical coaching to supplement its long rehearsal process—a system
which is clearly bearing fruit based on the mature and confident
performances of the large Monteverdi cast."
  La Cieca - Parterre Box
