“Particularly outstanding among director Kelly Robinson’s well-paced, superb cast of actor-singers are…baritone Joshua Hopkins as Papageno. Hopkins tackles his role with real panache, making Papageno a lively and amusing character who is a lot of fun to watch. Papageno’s glockenspiel routine that has the slaves prancing about during his love-makes-the-world-go-round Act II aria was but one of many audience favorites.”
