READ THE REVIEWS: The Florentine delivers great opera in Milwaukee


The principals of the Florentine production brought power, lyricism, control and great theatrical sense to their roles. They also formed an exceptionally well-balanced ensemble, matching and supporting one another beautifully in both vocal and theatrical aspects of their roles.
– Elaine Schmidt, Journal Sentinel

In its exhilarating production of Richard Wagner’s first successful opera, the Florentine Opera brought excitement to a work often overlooked in comparison with his later achievements.
– Steve Spice, The Shepherd Express


But performed here, thanks to Floyd’s wonderful way with character, drama and musical textures, it seems as if it was always meant to be on the stage. And the recording should be a powerful representation of its place in American opera.
– Paul Kosidowski, Milwaukee Magazine

The Florentine Opera Company’s thoroughly involving concert performance of Carlisle Floyd’s “Wuthering Heights,” at the Wilson Center Friday evening, proved that powerful music, a gripping story and fine singers are the essential elements.
– Elaine Schmidt, Journal Sentinel


Stage director Frank Kelley brought a healthy dose of theater to the production. Friday’s audience saw characters with depth, as well as complexity in their relationships with one another. They also saw a lively, engaged chorus.
– Elaine Schmidt, Journal Sentinel

Revisiting Elmer Gantry, the Florentine Opera’s award-winning 2010 production, proved an enlightening experience in a refreshingly renovated presentation.
– Steve Spice, The Shepherd Express


All across the board, the Florentine Opera Company’s production was a terrific way to spend an evening (or a Sunday afternoon). That’s entertainment.
– William Barnewitz, Urban Milwaukee

Like the best work from this golden age of Italian opera, this L’elisir d’amore is truly a marvelous and tasty concoction.
– Paul Kosidowski, Milwaukee Magazine

The Florentine’s cast was a well-balanced, vocally polished, theatrically astute group of singing actors. They created well-defined, likable characters and delivered ensemble numbers with comically crossed purposes.
– Elaine Schmidt, Journal Sentinel
This is just a sampling of the critical acclaim from the past season with the Florentine Opera Company. Don’t miss out on securing your favorite seats at the lowest price of the season.
