REVIEWS: Cold Mountain

North Carolina Opera

"Cold Mountain was a tremendous success, and in many ways is the company’s greatest achievement in its eight-season history. The worthy results began with conductor Christopher Allen knowingly shaping Jennifer Higdon’s score, a taut through-line propelling the music’s wistful, moody atmosphere. The large orchestra ably provided battle cacophony or moonlit romance, as needed."
