      The smaller roles were well done, especially Ronnita Miller’s rich-sounding Page.

      Ronnita Nicole Miller, however, is the model. She does not overdo the comedy of Mistress Quickly and instead lets her increasingly impressive creamy mezzo do it for her. Having come up through the ranks of L.A. Opera, she gets better with each appearance.

      March 2013

      As portrayed by Stacey Tappan and Ronnita Nicole Miller, the stepsisters, Clorinda and Tisbe, were an adorable duo. From the moment they appear in their overstuffed underwear and bright wigs, through every resonant note sung, they inhabited their characters with divine silliness. Soprano Tappan, vocalized with agile grace; and Miller, recently heard as the Nurse in LAO’s Flying Dutchman, has a powerful and versatile voice, singing both bel canto and Wagnerian roles successfully.

      The two stepdaughters are played to appropriate extremes by soprano Stacey Tappan and mezzo Ronnita Nicole Miller. Both offer crisp musicality even as they romp.
