  • STRAVINSKY - The Rake's Progress

    Teatro Colón, Buenos Aries
    Jul 2023
    • ...the American soprano Andrea Carroll got into the skin of the great character of Anne Trulove with her light voice, emitted with precision, tuning and beautiful registers

    • Andrea Carroll played Anne Trulove: her beautiful timbre and perfect delivery were ideal for her part. A truly triumphant evening for the three main protagonists

    • Soprano Andrea Carroll , sings Anne Trulove ("True Love"), Tom's fiancée, with surgical precision. Her voice, limpid and luminous, is as agile as a scalpel: her ease in the highest notes and the execution of octave leaps impresses. The vocal curves she draws are pure, both ingenuous and sensual.
