  • La rondine (Yvette)

    Metropolitan Opera
    Mar 2024 - Mar 2025
    • The roles of Ivette, Bianca, and Suzy were sung with charm by Magdalena Kuzma, Amanda Batista, and Sun-Ly Pierce.

    • Some of the Met’s strongest supporting singers enlivened the ephemeral roles of Magda’s party guests, including the ever-reliable Christopher Job (Perichaud) and Paul Corona (Crebillon) plus the sonorous charm squad of Magdalena Kuzma (Yvette), Amanda Batista (Bianca) and — yet another promising debutant — Sun-Ly Pierce (Suzy).

    • Magdalena Kuźma affirme sa chaleur vocale même dans les parties très aiguës

    • Tra gli altri personaggi si sono visti il solido basso-baritono Alfred Walker come Rambaldo e il buon trio vocale delle amiche di Magda, che includeva Magdalena Kuźma, Amanda Batista e Sun-Ly Pierce. Buoni anche i restanti componenti del cast.
