SHARPLESS Madama Butterfly PUCCINI Canadian Opera Company

David Pomeroy and James Westman make a vocally rich Pinkerton and Sharpless.
-Glenn Sumi, Now Toronto

Baritone James Westman was a very sympathetic and well-done Consul Sharpless. He sang well and interacted very effectively with Butterfly. The pain and sympathy he felt for her was palpable and that is high praise for a singer who may be more interested in the notes than in the acting.
