"Arnulfo Maldonado provided a very workable set design, dominated by a spectacular two-tiered, circular wrought iron structure that at once suggested a birdcage and a Spanish mansion. That magnificent framework afforded surprisingly many uses of levels and entrances with the simple addition of a flown front gate, suitably effective set pieces, and a scrim as the grand drape." -- on THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, Opera Today.
"Everyone was playing on the same team here and that included scenery designer Arnulfo Maldonado, who kept Rosina trapped in a giant, gilded birdcage with a spiral staircase. It was a star player in its own right." -- on THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, Denver Post
