“Heather Buck, dressed in a lovely floor-length gown and with an expressive stage presence, shifted the mood from holiday fun to celebratory reverence with a beautiful performance of Mozart’s ‘Exultate, Jubilate’. With moods ranging from lyrical solemnity to exuberant joy, and replete with dazzling vocal pyrotechnics, Mozart’s music provides a worthy soprano with both an expressive opportunity and a vocal challenge; and Ms. Buck’s strong and even vocal support, flexible expressiveness, and impressive coloratura agility both met the challenge and projected the score’s expressive flow.”

Set just before World War I, Sinclair Lewis's incendiary novel Elmer Gantry tells a story of old-time religion, illicit romance and revenge. Robert Aldridge and Herschel Garfein's operatic adaptation is a ‘marvelous amalgam of toe-tapping accessibility' (Opera News) full of hymns, gospel songs, marches and dance, evoking the period in a score which echoes Gershwin and Copland. This all-American production combines a first-rate cast of singers and a world-class orchestra for ‘an intoxicating experience' (New York Times).
