“A surprise addition to the production is Shawn Mathey coming in as a last-minute replacement…He was completely at home in this role that marks his debut with SF Opera. His first act aria, “Dalla sua Pace”, was sweet and resonant in the house, Mathey displaying solid control throughout his range. The fireworks came in Act II with “Il mio tesoro”. Mathey’s coloratura is crystal clear and the upper register bright and passionate.”
