Beautifully sung, hilariously acted, perfectly directed, brilliantly composed (John Musto for Bastianello and William Bolcom for Lucrezia), cleverly written (both by Mark Campbell)- these are just some of the ways to describe Urban Arias’ production of Bastianello & Lucrezia. Stage Directed by Alan Paul, and Musically Directed by Robert Wood, the two form a perfect team and present a most enjoyable evening of comic, modern opera.
— Brennan Jones, D.C. Metro Theatre Arts
Alan Paul deserves gigantic props for his inventive, whimsical, and often ridiculous (in a good way) staging. Despite the fact that Bastianello and Lucrezia were “commissioned to entertain,” they both carry serious messages beneath the laughs.
— Rebecca Evans, D.C. Theatre Scene
