Keith Chambers, the company’s artistic director, led the orchestra…the brasses came in ominously, the saxophone was startling, the oriental harmonies set the scene, we got our money’s worth.  As with his work on La Favorita and Forza del Destino, Chambers made the case for grand opera as great theater. (Hérodiade with New Amsterdam Opera, 2019)

- John Yohalem, Parterre Box
