Houston Brown Theater, Wortham Center 01/23/2009
HGO favorite Laura Claycomb returned and conquered as Tytania. Her combination of beautiful stage presence, creamy, flexible voice and superb acting skills made her the perfect foil for Davie’s Oberon, and the two singers stole every scene when either was onstage. When both were together, it was an embarrassment of vocal riches. Both were clad in gorgeous costumes: Oberon in black, Tytania in bejeweled white, with multiple chiffon trains flowing yards behind her. Both were sartorially linked by thorned, paisley patterns on their clothing and plumes for crowns.
