Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck, Greensboro Opera, 2007
Greensboro News and Records, February 25, 2007, Tim Lindeman
“In the role of the witch was Barbara DeMaio Caprilli, whose singing and shenanigans brought the house down. She was more campy than treacherous, more spoof than scare. It was a perfect match for a show that was designed for children of all ages. Her voice is a mature one, and she negotiated the changes from crackling to chest, from high screeches to low guffaws. It is obvious that this woman is a true veteran of the stage.”
