ALL IN THE FAMILY FOR THREE YOUNG OPERA SINGERS
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
May 24, 2017
"At center stage will be Pene Pati, the brilliant young tenor who is making his first starring appearance with the company, singing the licentious Duke of Mantua. Amid the swirl of the Duke’s party will be soprano Amina Edris, Pati’s wife of a year and a half, as the Countess Ceprano. And somewhere else in the scrum, Pati’s brother Amitai will be on hand as the courtier Borsa.
'It’s incredibly unique to have all three of us on stage at the same time,' says Edris, her enthusiasm practically boiling over. 'How often do you see three family members together on the stage of an A-level opera house?'"
