« Tito | Main | Tito with the COC Ensemble »

While you were having a great time in Toronto with the original Chicago Opera Theater production of "Tito," I had another COT connection in St. Paul with the Douglas Cuomo world premiere of "Doubt." It will come as NO surprise to you or to anyone that Doubt was a triumph for COT alum Matthew Worth. Certainly we all knew that there were no limits for him when we saw him as Owen Wingrave and then again in Three Decembers at COT.

Worth as Father Flynn goes toe-to-toe with the superb Sister Aloyisius of Christine Brewer and he belongs on the stage with her. It is a career defining performance by Worth. The opera is a must see and the performances of Worth, Brewer, Denyce Graves, and Adriana Zabala will be imprinted in my memory. This is an opera that deserves productions. Have a relaxing flight home and we shall toast a glass of wine in Chicago in a couple of weeks! Rick Boyum
