“Mezzo Melisa Bonetti is especially active as the saucy and flirtatious Zerlina, playfully crawling during the suggestive aria

“Bonetti brought a pleasant quality to her singing and delightful characterization of innocence.” -Virginia Gazette
“Mezzo-soprano Melisa Bonetti (Zerlina) and baritone Evan Bravos (Masetto) are an equally well-matched duo.

They are by far the most active and yet maintain outstanding control.” -Broadway World
