Robert McQueen press reviews

“Stage director Robert McQueen knows how to keep the action fast, quick and clever and his casts (alternate casts played the three lead roles) not only sounded glorious…but had a field day hamming it up and making the most of opera’s comic potential.”  Arizona Opera – IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA

Chris C.
“In his staging, Robert McQueen reveled in the many ways Rossini pokes fun at the traditions of opera.  As the tangled plot nears its close, for instance, Figaro elaborately mocks the lovers’ insistence on breaking into a long duet in the midst of an elopement that needs to be both quiet and quick.”

Arizona Daily Star – Kimberly Matas
“McQueen’s  non-stop whirlwind of comedic activity lent the production a Marx Brothers-like zaniness, much of the action cued by elements of Rossini’s brilliant score.  McQueen in many  ways was the production’s MVP.  Rarely in a comic opera does one see characters so fully realized.”

Tucson Citizen – Daniel Buckley
“Stage Director Robert McQueen deserves a ‘bravo’ for his obviously successful work with everyone in the cast.”
