In Review: Irvin and Peterson in Madison Opera's "Salome"

"Sparks fly between Majeski and the impressive baritone Craig Irvin as Jochanaan, aka John the Baptist. Irvin’s voice bounces off the “cistern” below stage where the prophet is being kept, and rings into the hall like a clarion call. Prepare ye, indeed. . . Dennis Petersen goes for the near-impossible and (almost!) makes Herod sympathetic. Petersen is at once a masterful singer and believable as a confused old man, easily controlled by the women around him."
