We’ve probably gotten more reviews for Idomeneo than anything in a long while! Here’s a part of Mr. Kosman’s review:

The result, in Tuesday’s performance at the California Theatre, was a stretch of elegant pageantry, not always particularly animated but vividly colorful and done with a keen sense of Mozartean style.

That latter quality came courtesy of conductor George Cleve, who led the performance with a combination of assiduous care and theatrical panache. The orchestral playing was streamlined and shapely throughout, and a crisp rhythmic style predominated.
