As Ping in Turandot: Samuel Mungo's Ping was a minister with
a warmly rounder vocal portfolio.
As Mercutio in Roméo et Juliette: Samuel Mungo was a
standout as Mercutio. His strong baritone voice was quick and light
in his Queen Mab song, but there was also a darker quality that hinted
at the character¹s dangerous side.
As Danilo in The Merry Widow: The stand out was Samuel Mungo
as Danilo. He has everything: a powerful virile baritone well equalized
throughout its range, charismatic acting ability, and ready sexy good
looks. He made Danilo a sympathetic person rather than the playboy drunkard
the text paints. Sacramento Opera Association should invite him back
before he becomes more famous and more expensive.
