Italian Maestro Leonardo Vordoni makes his US debut in Madison Opera's Madama Butterfly next month, and if his debut at Wexford Festival Opera in Ireland is any indication, we're all in for a treat. Helming the renowned festival's production of Perdotti's Tutti in Maschera, The Stage (UK) says, "Leonardo Vordoni conducts a spirited account of the score. An unmissable delight." Kudos!
