"Owns the role"
...the one consistent element of Tulsa Opera’s ‘The Barber of Seville’ is the quality of the singing. The production features two performers who more or less own the roles they sing — Sarah Coburn as Rosina and Peter Strummer as Dr. Bartolo — along with equally solid performers Aaron Blake as Count Almaviva and Steven LeBrie as Figaro.

"Nearly stole the show... buffoonery"
As if one comic character were not enough, Strummer’s Dr. Bartolo nearly stole the show. He stumped and gesticulated around his quarters, exploding at every revelation of the Count’s machinations and Rosina’s impertinence. His voice and his costumes brought to life his gentlemanly position and escalated the effect of his buffoonery.
