Reviews

 

Macaroni Kid

Sancho Panza, Man of La Mancha (2017)

"The whole cast was so talented it's hard to pick a favorite, but I loved Daniel Weisman's very funny portrayal of Sancho, Don Quixote's man servant."

Classical Voice of North Carolina

Daniel Buchanan, Street Scene (2017)

"Notable among the singers, in no particular order, were dramatic soprano Amanda Palmeiro (Anna Maurrant), lyric soprano Anna Montgomery (Rose Maurrant), tenor Taylor Rawley (Sam Kaplan), tenor Daniel Weisman (Daniel Buchanan), and bass-baritone Joel Rogier (Frank Maurrant)."
