As Viola (Twelfth Night), Hermia (Midsummer...), in multiple roles in Nilo Cruz's "Anna in the Tropics" and "Hortensia and the Museum of Dreams", in Mario Diament's "Blind Date", in Naomi Wallace's "One Flea Spare", in an adaptation of "House of the Seven Gables" and in several other productions both in the theatre I ran for twenty years and elsewhere in South Florida, Ursula always shone with exemplary professionalism and grace, so it is no surprise to me that she continues to grow and excel as an artist. Brava Ursula!
Thanks for publishing this article. Before moving to Cincinnati - a great town with a great orchestra led by Paavo Jarvi, a great conductor - I lived in Miami, FL for more than 25 years during which I had the pleasure of listening to some of the world's great orchestras on tour led by, again, great conductors. The Miami residence of the Cleveland Orchestra has led to no end of bad blood from the community - both audiences and musicians - towards the Cleveland Orchestra, its management and its conductor. The high-handedness of this little Austrian fellow and the Teutonic arrogance with which Welser Most has led many concerts in Miami have allienated a good segment of the concert-going audience in South Florida, where he has come to be known as "Franz worse than most." Sad-to-say his imperious ways reflect on his music-making which many South Floridians find cold, robotic and eccentric. No doubt Herr Musik Direktor Welser Most has some choice barbs for the Florida audience, peopled as it is by so many non-Arian immigrants. Has anyone stopped to ask whether Mr. Rosenberg's name has played a part in provoking the ire of the son of the Baron from Lichtenstein? Just a thought.
