“Omer Ben Seadia leads her cast with a full command of the style that infuses the spirit of Donizetti’s masterpiece.In her production there’s little shtick, and hardly any gratuitous push for laughs. Ms. Sedia’s comedic conceits are solidly anchored in the raucous Italian commedia tradition of randy behavior and bourgeois bad manners that Carlo Goldoni perfected.”
