Minneapolis 6th Place—2013’s Best Classical Music
Rob Hubbard, special to the Pioneer Press, ranks Mill City Summer Opera’s “The Barber of Seville” (July 13-21) 6th place for Best Classical Music of 2013…
“Pace, passion and a tremendous sense of fun helped generate warmth that still stays with me in these cold months. Performed in a roofless riverside ruin, Gioachino Rossini’s comic adventure was appropriately madcap, filled with exceptional singing and marvelously designed.”
Jake Gardner played the role of Dr. Bartello in this performance.
“As the suitor, Jake Gardner proves a great exponent of the basso buffo tradition.”
