The wonderful Sondra Radvanovsky is pulling in rave reviews once again, and this time it’s in Un ballo in maschera with the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
Check out the review from the opening night on ChicagoClassicalReview.com:
By Lawrence A. Johnson
“… Of course, having Sondra Radvanovsky as Amelia is all gain. There are few singers better suited to this repertoire than the Berwyn-born soprano and so she proved it again, as Renato’s tormented wife, who is in love with his best friend, the Swedish king, Gustavus.
…the soprano went from strength to strengeth afterward. Her gleaming top notes were thrilling in the ensuing love duet and Radvanovsky’s searing rendition of the showpiece, Morro, ma prima in grazia was the highlight of the evening, beautifully sung and emotionally riveting…Amelia is not a role that offers much range, but even with much of her time spent in shadow in this darkly lit staging, Radvanofsky made her presence felt.”
