It is the opera’s next scene that introduces the opera’s principal protagonists, the Proctors, played by the two of opera’s most important young stars, New York baritone Brian Mulligan and mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton. It is the Proctors’ relationship that provides the dramatic arc of the opera. The vocally strong, soulful performances of the two artists set a new standard for 21st century performances of this important work.
