"Perfect marriage of acting and vocal expression"

In particular, mezzo-soprano Cindy Sadler forged the perfect marriage of acting and vocal expression to vitalize Katisha. Her true mezzo-soprano voice was absolutely present on the Act I finale, when she vowed vengeance against Nanki-Poo. And, at that point in every good comedy when the stereotype falls away and the character has a deep, sincere moment, Sadler beautifully conveyed Katisha’s despair on the second act aria, ‘Alone and Yet Alive’.
