SPO IN THE NEWS

"St. Petersburg Opera's 'Rigoletto' seduces the eye and ear." 

"There was a vintage, golden-age quality to Galen Scott Bower's performance Friday as the title character of Rigoletto by St. Petersburg Opera at the Palladium Theater... Rigoletto has some of Verdi's most artful orchestration, and artistic director Mark Sforzini conducted the 34-piece orchestra in a superb performance."
