As Suzuki, Barbara LeMay made the flower duet a joyous thing, as she, Butterfly and the geisha’s son, Dolore, tossed pink petals around the stage.

Barbara LeMay is a consummate artist: a brilliant musician, a sensitive and compelling actress with a most beautiful voice.

Suzuki and Sharpless, played by Barbara LeMay and Todd von Felker were very impressive and at times outshined their lead counterparts. In the duets between Suzuki and Butterfly LeMay displayed beautiful vocal control in her dynamic contrast… Believability was one thing that was not lacking from any character in this production. Their acting was strong… the performance was met with a standing ovation by the end of the night.
