Ottawa Life Magazine writes
Opera returned to Ottawa in a big way with one of the stage’s most famed divas reigning supreme. The Pellegrini Opera company, lead by acclaimed Music Director Michel Brousseau and Artistic Director Vincent Thomas, delivered a moving performance of Puccini’s masterpiece Tosca with the piece’s central figure slipping into her sweet, scandalous and seductive best. Certainly a joy for those filling the seats of Dominion-Chalmers Church last Saturday who hung on every note.

…Pellegrini Opera successfully staged a substantially more ambitious work than any they had previously undertaken. This effort was well supported by a large audience on each evening showing great enthusiasm and enjoyment of the company’s ambitious production.
From audience member Sherry M
I just wanted to congratulate you on your and your company’s performance of Tosca.
My husband and his parents came with me to see it and everyone enjoyed it immensely. Every voice was fantastic, but your and your tenor’s performances were incredible–flawless and very moving. Of course we were blown away by your Vissi d’arte and his Lucevan le stelle, but everything was brilliant, and you all seemed to be enjoying yourselves the whole time.
Congratulations again, and thanks so much for the arte e amore!
