Review: Lady Swanwhite, Opera Tampa.

“Mezzo-Soprano Jessica Best gives the show’s best performance as the stepmother, who spends most of the play terrorizing Swanwhite and her servants. In her role, those unexpected melodic leaps made sense, and her paranoia and grief over a long-ago death dominate the stage.” -Andrew Meacham, Tampa Bay Times
