“Ms. Bishop’s Mother Marie is a more nuanced role. She is less authoritarian than her prioress, and arguably more compassionate, particularly toward the conflicted Blanche. Yet she too has nerves of steel, ultimately selling her fellow sisters on their final act of collective self-immolation. Ms. Bishop adds authority and vocal heft to the role, and in Monday evening’s performance had little problem soaring above Poulenc’s dynamic orchestration.”
