Brown Theater, Wortham Center
“The 2009-10 Houston Grand Opera season closes with a thoroughly enjoyable performance of Handel’s Xerxes. A superb cast led by three of the finest Handel singers working today complements an engagingly stylized visual production, and William Lacey and the orchestra support with elegance and precision.
David Daniels’ excellent singing made one wish Arsamenes had more arias. The two sang beautifully in “Troppo’l Traggi”, their voices blending wonderfully and their chemistry wholly believable.”
