This week Tufts U. in nearby Medford is presenting Figaro at the Granoff 
Center.  There are four performances only and I was at the opening on 
Thursday. The Tufts Chamber Orchestra numbering 30 was situated behind 
the singers but there was still enough space for the action to take place. 
The staging was good, the costumes were variable, ranging from what 
looked like a Nathan Detroit impersonation from the Count to a typical 
attire for the Cherubino.  The singers were inconsistent vocally but the best 
of them was again the Cherubino, Kyra Link.  Not only was she the best of 
them in terms of voice and technique but  she looked the part and 
obviously loved doing it.  All of them had the roles well in hand and the 
Italian wasn't too bad, although occasionally some of them took a quick 
breath in the middle of a word.  This was the first time I had heard of any 
opera being produced at Tufts which gives lots of free concerts of all types 
during the school year.
