“Mezzo-soprano SarahAnn Duffy proved an affable Rosina, although when bullied by Doctor Bartolo, she was anything but a pushover. With her creamy mezzo-soprano she soared gently through Rossini’s coloratura thickets, and her cavatina “Una voce poco fa” displayed finesse and a clear stylistic appreciation.”
