“Indeed, almost every appearance of Susanna Hurrell as Norina was a highlight. She is a soprano with the whole package. Her beautiful voice is multi-faceted, powerful and expressive. Moreover, she owns the stage with terrific charismatic presence and acting ability, and her quick wit in interpreting Norina had me chuckling aloud on several occasions.”
