“HOT’s production begins slowly, but the pace picks up when soprano Jill Gardner (Tosca) sweeps in. Gardner (whose husband, Jake Gardner, sang Scarpia in 2006, HOT’s last production of “Tosca”), is dynamite, in voice and acting. She embodies Tosca, flirting with Cavaradossi one minute, devout the next, pleading with Scarpia, then murdering him. She is powerless, yet the most powerful of all. Gardner has a large, richly-toned, burgundy voice, and her performance in this very demanding role is worth the price of a ticket all by itself.”
