I am thrilled that our Pittsburgh audiences have been loving this show as much as I do!

The smaller parts were in quite capable hands. As Emilia, wife of Iago and Desdemona’s “duenna,” Laurel Semerdjian made the most of the little she had to sing by displaying a mezzo-soprano of lovely, firm quality. She has the fine sense of “repose” so necessary in a role that requires the subtle art of listening and reacting to what is taking place around her. Her appearances in other productions later in the season will be looked forward to, and it is easy to imagine this talented young woman rising to greater heights.

Secondary roles were effectively handled...Mezzo-soprano Laurel Semerdjian was excellent as Emilia, Desdemona's maid and Iago's wife.
