“Compelling performances by another excellent mezzo, Angela Brower, of Annio’s two arias near the start of Act II signal the production’s growing intensity . . .” -The New York Times

“A cast full of talented singer-actors makes this story worth watching . . . Angela Brower plays Sesto’s range of emotions with poignant genuineness. She progresses believably from the dazed, lovesick puppy who crawls under Vitellia’s skirts during “Deh, se piacer mi vuoi” to the tormented traitor who appears bound, thirsty, and abused in Act II. Her voice reveals an impressive array of colours and textures, and she throws off the triplets in “Parto, parto” with enviable ease (matched admirably by clarinet soloist Markus Schön). She also makes novel and sensitive ornamentation choices, particularly in “Deh, per questo istante solo”.  -Bachtrack.com
