Recent Press

Tisbe in Piramo e Tisbe

Stephen Jude Tietjen, Opera News

The three artists singing on March 24 each gave indelible performances that should count among the finest and most complete interpretations heard in New York this season...As Tisbe, Kelly Curtin sang with a crystal- clear soprano that was as round and full at the very bottom of her range as it was in some expertlyexecuted stratospheric embellishments. Both she and Gorstein surrendered themselves completely to the physicality of their roles.
