Stage Director

Verdi’s Rigoletto – Utah Festival Opera (2004) – Salt Lake Tribune

Curse of Rigoletto broken with Triumphant Performance.

Utah Festival Opera’s potent opening night set a new artistic benchmark for the young company. An impressive cast and artistic staff charged the story of the hunchbacked jester with vitality….energetic pacing and purposeful stage direction by James Marvel made the opera’s three hours speed by. A dynamic men’s chorus and lavishly detailed set contributed to the triumphant production.

– Salt Lake Tribune, Robert Coleman
