Heather Buck and Stephen Powell named one of Boston Classical Review's "Top Ten Performances of 2017"

Heather Buck and Stephen Powell were named one of Boston Classical Review's "Top Ten Performances of 2017" for their renditions of Joan of Arc and Bishop Pierre Cauchon in Norman Dello Joio's The Trial at Rouen, presented by Odyssey Opera.

Of the production: "American operas are rarely heard in Boston, but this past month witnessed the revival of a rare treat in Norman Dello Joio’s The Trial at Rouen. Based on the last few hours of Joan of Arc’s life, the opera began as a work for television but quickly fell into obscurity. December’s semi-staged production was the opera’s belated stage premiere. And a fine one it was. The singing of Heather Buck (Joan) and Stephen Powell (Bishop Pierre Cauchon) transformed the familiar story into an emotionally resonant human drama. Dello Joio’s attractive music, with its lyrical melodies and colorful orchestration, makes this a piece that deserves to be heard more often. Kudos to Gil Rose, the fine cast and chorus of Odyssey Opera, and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project for shedding new light on this intriguing work."
