- I read your review with interest, followed by disappointment that the young man(Sean Anderson) that played Papageno had been overlooked. I can only imagine how he felt to first see his character's photo in the column followed by "nothing" in writing. Such an oversight should not have occurred, and I feel an apology is in order. Care must be taken that this does not happen again.
- This has got to be an editing error made in the effort to save column space. The fact that Papageno isn't mentioned while literally EVERYONE else in the cast is at least referenced seems rather absurd. Omitting Papageno from a review of Flute is like omitting Leporello from Giovanni or the Count from Nozze. I remember June LeBell's radio broadcasts - this doesn't seem like a mistake she would make.
- You have a wonderful picture of Papageno, but no mention of his performance. This seems very odd to me - especially since much smaller roles were mentioned and Papageno is a very large and fun part of the Magic Flute's whimsy. This must be an editing mistake, but I'm wondering what the reviewers thoughts were on his performance?
- What about the Papageno? I find it hard to believe you could review a production of Magic Flute and not have anything to say about the largest role in the show. (Especially considering the photo you included is of the Papageno.) Can anyone tell us about the Papageno? Who is he? Was he any good?
