"As Professor Bhaer, bass Brent Michael Smith was one the production’s highlights. With a breathtakingly lush voice, Smith’s singing of the sumptuous “Kennst du das Land” pastiche was captivating. He unleashed a restrained passion, particularly in the translated repetition of the German, heatedly directed at Jo. His chemistry with Hunter was palpable and their voices were perfectly matched."
