St. Petersburg Opera gives fresh depth to ‘Susannah’. The St. Petersburg Opera Company gave a compelling… performance at the Palladium Theatre
Director Michael Unger gets strong acting from everyone on the stage. Considering that the singers and conductor cannot make direct eye contact, the coordination among everyone is remarkable… all contribute to make Susannah a memorable show. Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah is not an easy opera to do well. It has been performed at the Metropolitan Opera and many other Opera Companies commanding far greater resources than St. Petersburg Opera. The results are an outstanding achievement.
