Stacey Mastrian window

 

"...the most memorable work of the evening was 'La fabbrica illuminata'....Singing with remarkable self-possession, Mastrian gave a manifestly courageous performance that was alert to the fierce protest behind every note of this score but also, near the end, conveyed the almost Mahlerian sense of human compassion in this music, as the soprano sings 'non sarà così sempre' ("it will not always be like this")."
    – The Boston Globe


 

"...showstopping heights with ease and control....nimble and coquettish...vocally winning and dramatically perfect."
    – The Plain Dealer

"...exquisitely etched performance, unveiling delicate, silvery tones and pinpoint accuracy."
    – The Washington Times
