What they’re saying


“The opera’s true heart was Mezzo-Soprano Magda-Sophia Gartner… With a voice that could brush the ground and kiss the stratosphere, Gartner’s vocalism and acting alike conveyed the horror of living under siege, even when the music was dissonantly jaunty in comparison to the lyrics.”

The Boston Globe - Zoe Madonna

“Mezzo Magda-Sophia Gartner showed a weighty middle voice and piercing top as La Aurora and her emotional connection to the lyricism of ‘Ay Amor’ made it the most memorable aria of the evening”

New York Classical Review - Eric C. Simpson

“Mezzo-Soprano Magda-Sophia Gartner energetically and beautifully sang and acted the trouser role or Aurelio”

The Boston Globe - Zoe Madonna

“The real stand-out of the cast was Magda-Sophia Gartner as Aurelio, the pants role at the heart of the story. She is a mezzo-soprano of real note, handling the beautiful legato of her entrance cavatina and the intricate coloratura of its cabaletta”

The Donizetti Society - Charles Jernigan
