Jimi James offered dramatic fire and, for the most part, solid tonal resources as Tonio. Jeremy Blossey sang valiantly as Beppe. But, in the crucial role of Canio, Kevin Courtemanche seemed in over his head. Aside from a few brightly booming high notes, he was more tenorino than tenor, with little support in the mid and low range, and his Italian came with a heavy American accent. He certainly threw himself into the theatrical side of things (there was a good deal of acting from most of the participants), but that wasn't enough.
