Rave Reviews for Livermore Valley Opera’s “Of Mice and Men”

LVOpera’s Season Opening production of Carlisle Floyd’s Of Mice and Men successfully captivated newcomers and patrons alike, impressed Bay Area music critics and thrilled local opera supporters. The vivid and dramatic portrayal of John Steinbeck’s tragic story, performed by a stellar cast of talented artists, moved those in attendance at the Bankhead Theater to tears.

“Livermore Valley Opera has produced an exemplary rendering of the opera that extracts all of the heart wrenching pathos from its essence that could possibly be expected.  Each artist sings and acts in an exemplary fashion and the production values excel.”

Opera critic Victor Cordell, Cordell Reports comments in his review Of Mice and Men – Opera Version

 “Livermore Valley Opera, run by retired soprano Erie mills, continues to do inventive work in a setting where another impresario might settle for endless retreads of the standard operatic repertoire. ‘Of Mice and Men’ is emblematic of that lively spirit.”

Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle  classical music critic, notes in his review, Of Mice and Men’ gives operatic voice to Depression-era America
