ELEKTRA

"After an absence of 65 years, Elektra returned in triumph to Philadelphia. The production boasted stellar singing from the big cast and a cogent, focused staging by Dorothy Danner. ------Danner's taut production caught and sustained the dramatic tension in Strauss's score. She staged the opera with compelling simplicity on Peter Harrison's tilted set-----and drew strong portrayals from her cast."

Opera Magazine


IOLANTHE

"Dorothy Danner's whimsical, sensitive staging always allowed for special moments of tenderness and yearning inherent in Sullivan's superb score."

Opera News


A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

"The most impressive quality about Dorothy Danner's staging was how naturally and spontaneously it grew from the ingeniously structured score----I've seen a number of productions but none has clarified this essential quality so sharply or encouraged the performers to communicate the humanity of the piece with so much warmth, wit and vitality."

New York Magazine


MADAME BUTTERFLY

"Kudos, then to stage director Dorothy Danner, who framed the whole opera as a flashback of Butterfly's now grown son, seeking to find his roots and make sense of his distant memories of childhood before his father and stepmother carried him off to America. This was tactfully done in a couple of silent pantomimes by the grown son, accompanied only by the thwack of a wood block, before the action began in both acts, and continued in the en'tracte between the two parts of Act 2. In that sequence, the grown son takes the hand of his childlike self and tries to penetrate beyond the screen on which his mother's silhouette is projected. This freshness of approach------Theatrically, then, this was a Butterfly with much to offer."

Washington Post
Anne Midgette


LA TRAVIATA

"This production shows part of the story of the real Alphonsine Plessis, on whom Violetta is based, and turns  it into a mimed show seen through a screen during the opera’s overture.  We see a very young girl sold by her father to be used by whatever man will have her, until she luckily connects with men who give her greater and greater finery---and then shows up dressed in white in front of the curtain.  This is a remarkably effective way to begin an oft-told tale."

Washington Post


GRAND DUCHESS OF GEROLSTEIN

"Dorothy Danner, the director, knows how to move a crowd around the stage, how to match choreographic challenges to the ability of her cast, how to compose a picture and how to plant a laugh."

New York Times


ALBERT HERRING

"Under the imaginative direction of Dorothy Danner, the singers created a fine impression of class conscious English village life at the turn of the century.  Characterization and manners were handled deftly, and the satire emerged extremely funny."

Opera News


STREET SCENE

"The masterful director, Dorothy Danner, has employed her full arsenal of directorial options. Her beautiful stage pictures are never static, as performers move from one elegant composition to another. The pantomime business given to the teeming cast is always fresh,  appropriate and lively."

Paul Kuritz, Theatre and Film Critic


LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR

"Virginia Opera handled the unceasingly dark melodrama by turning it into a fast paced, innovative production. From the opening pantomime, in which Edgardo rescued his dead father's tartan from their despoiled castle, to the eerily moving trees that appeared at scene changes---like Birnam Wood coming repeatedly to Dunsinane---Stage director Dorothy Danner produced a stunning setting."

Washington Post


DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT

"Of the Fort Worth Festival’s three traditional productions, the five-star one was Dorothy Danner’s Daughter of the Regiment, where the unquestioned star was Dorothy Danner.  So masterly was Danner’s comedic timing, so rhythmic and tightly flowing the choreography of the cast and chorus, that Danner’s sense of style, matched the comique brilliance of Donizetti."

American Record Guide


PORGY AND BESS

"The production is directed by Dorothy Danner with all the vitality and sizzle of a Broadway musical.  No faceless chorus here---every person on that stage moves and breathes as a fully realized character, with life implied beyond the boundaries of the set."

Washington Post


MY FAIR LADY

"Skylight presents a Bloomin, Beautiful and Brilliant 'My Fair Lady'"

Broadway World.com

"Skylights 'My Fair Lady' enchants with graceful singing, staging--'"

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A dazzling 'My Fair Lady' at Skylight'"

Shepherd Express


CARMEN

"The production's chief virtue is Dorothy Danner’s staging, a combination of “Les Miserables” transplanted to Spain and a seamless procession of colorful crowd scenes and intimate encounters."

Cleveland Plain Dealer


THREEPENNY OPERA

"This Threepenny Opera is a provacative but, above all, lively and thoroughly entertaining presentation.  It is clearly the most successful and brilliant of the mid-season mini-productions that the Madison Opera has brought us."

The Isthmus


THE MAGIC FLUTE

"Die Zauberflöte can easily turn silly in the hand of a producer eager to be loved by any vulgar means.  Dorothy Danner paid tribute to Mozart and Schikaneder by treating the work seriously and with taste."

Opera Magazine


THE MERRY WIDOW

"If Houston Grand Opera’s current production of “The Merry Widow” were any bubblier, it would lift Miller Theatre off the ground and send it sailing into the night sky.---astutely directed and briskly choreographed by Dorothy Danner."

Houston Chronical


DIE FLEDERMAUS

"This Fledermaus was one of the most thoroughly enjoyable operatic experiences I have ever had."

Washington Post

"Directed with constant inventiveness by Dorothy Danner."

San Francisco Classical Voice


A CHEKHOV TRILOGY

"The unqualified triumph of Operafest came with Wargo’s Trilogy, based on short stories by Chekhov. The three one actors staged with verve by Dorothy Danner, left as bold an imprint as they did in last year’s performance."

Opera Magazine

A VISIT TO THE COUNTRY—“Dorothy Danner’s tautly focused staging found an apt  reflection  in Christopher Macatsoris’ intense conducting.

THE MUSIC SHOP—“Dorothy Danner pulled out all the stops in her madcap staging of THE  MUSIC SHOP."

Opera News


POSTCARD FROM MOROCCO

"A fantastically directed theatre event-----this team reached the quality of the Flemish Opera----staging by Dorothy Danner, a dynamic American director----this production deserves a revival."

Ghent-Hetdaatste Nieuws


CANDIDE

"Dorothy Danner managed to make sense of the unending scene shifts while keeping her handsome cast under control.  Wisely making some serious cuts in this manic operetta, the director set a brisk pace that never looked breathless.  Resisting the temptation to send this tale over the top, Danner nimbly kept a human touch, and it paid off."

Opera News


LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA

"BRAVO!  “Light in the Piazza” is brilliant----The staging comes to resemble an intricately and precisely rendered dance. "

Winston-Salem Journal

BALLYMORE

"The Producer, Dorothy Danner's excellent casting and dynamic direction delivered an array of vital and delicious characters; each a person you quickly came to care about."

Opera Magazine

"Dorothy Danner's direction beautifully evoked the Irish Milieu without sentimentality."

Wall Street Journal

THE BARBER OF SEVILLE

"When they happen to meet on equal terms, art and life don't always do so without the breaking of some crockery, even some heads, before the accident is cleared away. But on rare occasions the meeting of the two is so felicitous as to create a sort of Uber Art (or Uber life) that carves its own creative category. Arguably the evening's biggest star was director Dorothy Danner. A director's genius is not just in exercising control over all aspects of production but in the adroit allowance of freedom."

Willamette Weekly - Portland, Oregon

LA BOHEME

"Stage director Dorothy Danner handled the small ensembles with focus and liveliness and she gave the crowd outside Café Momus a wealth of apt detail. The big-picture movements followed the ebb and flow of the music---a nice subtlety that too few stage directors grasp."

San Antonio Express News

COSI FAN TUTTE

"Conducted by AVA's music director Christopher Macatsoris and stage directed by Dorothy Danner, this mounting of "Cosi" can stand comparison with those of any and all major companies in the world."

Philadelphia Chesnut Hill Local

DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT

"The spoken dialogue revised and updated by stage director Dorothy Danner is both faithful to the authentic spirit of nineteenth century French light opera and wonderfully accessible to a twenty first century audience."

Front Row

"Fort Worth Opera opens a delightful Daughter of the Regiment. The Daughter of the Regiment is surely the most laugh inducing production in a long time. Dorothy Danner deserves most of the credit for this production. "

Fort Worth Star Telegram

THE DESERT SONG

"The incredibly talented Dorothy Danner deserves much praise for her inventive staging and choreography. The ensemble scenes once again amaze with their ingenuity and activity. She continually amazes this critic with her creativity and originality. Even the smallest details bear the mark of her genius, and every scene is a treat for the eye as well as the ear."

Cache Magazine

GRAND DUCHESS OF GEROLSTEIN

"This wonderful Duchess (Stephanie Blythe) inhabits a sparkling production.-------provides an effective backdrop for Dorothy Danner's witty staging. She plays up the comic fun without coarsening the humor."

Courier Post

HANSEL AND GRETEL

"The opera Company of Philadelphia's mounting of this charming operatic setting of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale is one of the finest in its three decades history. Dorothy Danner wisely avoided even a hint of condescending "cuteness" choosing instead an unaffected style of staging and acting."

Chestnut Hill

"Stage director, Dorothy Danner, has treated the classic with affection and gentle humor. The honesty of her approach certainly pays off as the characters and the drama come to life---a marvel of imagination and taste."

Syracuse Post Standard

LA TRAVIATA

"Internationally acclaimed Dorothy Danner did honors as stage director and choreographer, both activities which were done with flair. She cleverly and effectively managed the comings and goings on the Harrison Opera House's restricted space, most especially during the wonderfully conceived and executed party scenes."

Opera Canada

"This brilliant cast receives every possible means of support from stage director Dorothy Danner. I have to use the word "dazzle" when I think of her work. She, too has it all. She makes the dramatic action ring true and clear and composes scene after scene with visually stunning pictorial beauty and excitement. To view her staging is like turning the pages of a book depicting great master painters."

Edgar Loessin - WHRO

THE MAGIC FLUTE

"The cast benefits from Dorothy Danner's approachable and uncomplicated direction."

Los Angeles Times

MAN OF LA MANCHA

"Dorothy Danner, who staged and choreographed the show, possesses the most fertile directorial mind that has been applied to a Connecticut Opera production in many seasons. With ideas that are earthy, funny and sexy, Danner scoops up this sometimes touching, but often treacly and forced meditation on the resilience of human spirit, and whips it into a bracing piece of theatre."

The Hartford Courant

THE MIKADO

"Mikado delightfully staged in Cooperstown"----the star of the show is director Dorothy Danner, who moves the large cast deftly around Peter Dean Beck's attractive set, creating delectable stage pictures which seem to pass all too fleetingly. Danner knows her Gilbert and Sullivan, focusing on swiftly paced choreography designed to add bite to the already sharp satire."

Albany Times-Union

"----which Dorothy Danner has directed and choreographed with breathless delight. Danner rarely misses an opportunity to exploit Gilbert's pointed humor. She brings to the narrative a vaudeville pacing and eye for detail that accentuates the dramatic silliness and emphasizes the anachronisms. Danner's affection for the piece is infectious. The cast fairly skips through the evening, slapping open fans and parasols, digging stylishly into the music and raising a merry rukus."

Cleveland Plain Dealer

PIRATES OF PENZANCE

"Director-choreographer Dorothy Danner deserves much credit. She had the chorus and many soloists working in close coordination in movements that beautifully mirrored the spirit of Gilbert's ironic text and Sullivan's droll music. The many sight gags were funny and matched the absurdity of the story without excessive exaggeration."

Dallas Morning News

SOUTH PACIFIC

"Much of South Pacific's success is due to the stage director and choreographer, Dorothy Danner, whose nuance, balanced directions draws naturalistic acting and high Broadway style dancing from the performers, all in a tight production, that transports the audience to the island of the South Pacific toward the end of World WarII."

The Salt Lake Tribune

"Director. Dorothy Danner's genius is seen throughout this production. She masterly crafted the staging and choreography including the scene changes to create a seamless whole. Rarely has the gamut of human conflict and emotions encountered in this show been so honestly interpreted."

Cache Magazine

THE STUDENT PRINCE

"Dorothy Danner's picturesque staging and choreography were unfailingly lively, colorful, and full of unpatronizing trust in the warm appeal of the material."

Houston Post

SOUR ANGELICA and GIANNI SCHICCHI

"Dorothy Danner skillfully exploited the contract between the heartrending melodrama of Suor Angelica and the sunny comedy of Gianni Schicchi. Danner created a gallery of vivId portraits; the nuns all emerged with distinctive faces, and after intermission, so did Buoso Donati's family. Danner's richly detailed staging of Schicchi revealed the sparkling wit in Puccini's comedy."

Opera News

SUSANNAH

"---in a striking rendition of "Susannah" inventively staged by Dorothy Danner."

Washington Post

"A good production magically transports us to a different place. And so it is with this finely etched version of Carlisle Floyd's musical drama, directed with sensitivity and boldness by Dorothy Danner."

WHRO---Loessin at Large

"Virginia Opera's, unfussy, atmospheric new production let Floyd's rural drama unfold naturally and director, Dorothy Danner got a true ensemble effort from the eager cast."

Opera News

VANESSA

"This taut and vivid production has a wonderful sense of balance, from the very even and vocally splendid cast to the simple and elegant direction of Dorothy Danner."

Philadelphia City Paper

"Stage director Dorothy Danner produces Barber's opera in a straightforward way. She summons vivid characterizations from her talented cast."

Courier Post

PBS TELEVISION TRIBUTE TO GILBERT AND SULLIVAN

"Their songs were inventively staged by Dorothy Danner."
