“Adrien Roberts filled the role of Butterfly, singing with a gorgeous resonance and soaring top notes as she portrayed the full range of her character’s emotions, from those of a naïve young bride to a broken, desperate, abandoned mother, never compromising the quality of her vocal tone. An excellent performance.”
