I have to say, I was skeptical heading into this production. I’ve seen my fair share of opera, but have not developed much of a taste for more modern works. Aesopera was a pleasant surprise! The story lines of these five fables provided the perfect dose of comedy, tragedy, wit and heart – all in about an hour. The cast I saw was particularly strong and versatile in their performances. The tenor, Craig McEldowney, gave a stand-out performance that had me laughing, crying, and entranced with his beautiful voice. Overall, a lovely show that is approachable and fun for the whole family.
