All of the singers in this cast come with strong credentials from regional opera companies and orchestras. All evidence excellent vocal and technical training. They differ in their acting abilities.

The women, led by soprano Pamela Hicks as Leonora and mezzo-soprano Zoila Muñoz as Azucena, deliver the most well-rounded performances. Both vocally and dramatically, they convincingly portray their characters. Hicks' Leonora, a wealthy young woman loved by two men who don't know they're brothers, is a good, loyal woman who would sacrifice her life for her beloved. Her performance growing stronger and more rewarding during the course of her demanding role, Hicks has a regal stage presence, excellent intonation throughout her wide range and generally fine technique except for an occasional scoop.
