Le nozze di Figaro

Annapolis Opera, 2022

"Annapolis Opera’s production of The Marriage of Figaro is a beautiful blend of music, singing, and physical comedy. Directed by Corinne Hayes, with choreography by Sarah Oppenheim, and conducted by Craig Kier, it brings Mozart’s classic opera buffa to gorgeous life... Corinne Hayes does a wonderful job as director. The singers navigate the stage and each other well, and perfectly capture the comedy both vocally and physically. It gives much to enjoy for opera aficionados and novices alike."

- Charles Green, DC Theater Arts

Così fan tutte

Winter Opera St. Louis, 2016

"Stage director Corinne Hayes kept things moving smartly, with plenty of humorous touches. She found ways to differentiate between her characters and make them more believable, and used scenic designer Scott Loebl’s attractive unit set well."
- Sarah Bryan Miller, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Stage director Corinne Hayes manages her players wonderfully.

Every move is natural, stage pictures are well-composed, the chorus of servants and musicians is given lovely detail, and every instrumental passage is filled with meaningful physical action... All in all a beautiful job by Ms. Hayes."

- Steve Callahan, for

Agua, azucarillos, y aguardiente
