I hear voices in Phoenicia

Maxanne Resnick of the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice says,

"We had a fantastic festival. Several thousand people attended throughout the weekend. We had fabulous performances, the two operatic performances under gorgeous night skies, and lots of enthusiasm for our first annual 'The Phoenicia Festival of the Voice.'"

Here are internationally acclaimed baritone Louis Otey and his mezzo-soprano wife, Maria Todaro, who live in Phoenicia, during a previous engagement, performing "The Barber of Seville" ("Barbiere di Siviglia"), which, it turns out, is not just a Bugs Bunny cartoon after all.
