In Review: Boehler as Osmin in Lyric Opera of Kansas City "Abduction"

Updated: May 9

"Osmin, the buffoonish micromanager of the nightclub, is well cast in the towering figure of bass Matt Boehler, who transmitted the frothing insecurity of a man driven by jealousies and a yearning for authority. Though he bullies everyone, he saves a bulk of that ire for the happy-go-lucky Pedrillo, whose casual ease is a threat. . . Playing off each other, Boehler and Leppek carry most of the comedy.
