Don Giovanni at Cincinnati Opera (Donna Anna)

June 14th, 2013

The most memorable debut was made by Angela Meade, who as Donna Anna conveyed a range from grief to anguish while soaring radiantly through the most demanding arias. She might be forgiven for becoming a tad shrill when she unleashed the full power of her voice, which was considerable. Her sound was truly remarkable. As she knelt, she floated meltingly beautiful high notes in Donna Anna’s second act recitative and aria, ‘Crudele! . . . Non mi dir,’ in one of the evening’s most stunning moments.”
