Capriccio

The Metropolitan Opera

The impresario La Roche (the resonant British bass Peter Rose) points out that neither words nor music are worth squat without his sense of stagecraft.
Arthur Kaptainis, The Gazette, 1st April 2011
The most crucial character is La Roche, a theater director, here the powerful bass Peter Rose.
Anthony Tommasini, New York Times, 29th March 2011
As the producer La Roche, bass Peter Rose sang and acted with gusto...
Mike Silverman, San Francisco Chronicle, 29th March 2011
Bass Peter Rose, as the theater director La Roche, a character apparently modeled on the great Max Reinhardt, has his own idea of what takes priority: putting on a good production, a subject he expounds on eloquently in a scene in which Rose's robust bass is heard to fine effect.
George Loomis, www.classicalreview.com, 29th March 2011
