Review

Le nozze di Figaro -- Princeton Festival

“With his imposing height and spontaneity as an actor, Sean Anderson’s Count dominated the action. Anderson was much more than a leering predator and a philandering husband—he seemed constantly on the verge of losing his sense of self-worth. By letting us see the Count’s vulnerability early on, his final plea for the Countess’s forgiveness felt prepared, and there was no question it was sincere. Rather than bend the knee formally, he sank to the floor like a defeated little boy who finally understands the gift he’s squandered. Ideally cast, (he) offered smooth, flexible, resonant voice…expressive and in full command of the material.”
