CPCC Opera Theatre
“OPERA LOVERS IGNORE the current generation of CPCC Opera Theatre productions at their peril..... this was a production that deserved to play to a capacity house. Maybe by next season, word-of-mouth will catch up with the quality of opera at Halton.”
(Creative Loafing review of The Marriage of Figaro by Perry Tannenbaum – May 2007)
“A phenomenal find at CPCC Opera Theatre’s The Tales of Hoffmann”
“CP’s production …..a revelation to those who have never seen Offenbach’s tuneful crowdpleaser here.”
(Excerpts from a Creative Loafing Online Review by Perry Tannenbaum of CPCC Opera Theatre’s production of The Tales of Hoffmann—January 27, 2009)
