Making Them Laugh As Malatesta At The Santa Fe Opera

"Management of the SFO seems, rightfully, quite high on baritone Zachary Nelson, two years ago an apprentice and last year’s Figaro in “The Marriage of Figaro.” A talented comic actor with a smooth yet arresting baritone, Nelson returns again this summer to sing a delightfully textured and hilariously funny puppet-master as Dr. Malatesta. Artfully he instructs Norina how to play the part of an innocent maiden to entrap Pasquale into his plot."-D.S. Crafts, Albuquerque Journal
