Gilda - Rigoletto - G. Verdi

Opera Saratoga - 2012

 

“Gilda, sung beautifully by Quebec coloratura soprano Marie-Eve Munger(...) [she] owned her role, morphing from a virginal, dutiful daughter to a giddy, enraptured young woman to the ravished, brutalized victim of lecherous courtiers and, of course, of her lover, the Duke. She sang the signature soprano aria, “Caro nome” with an effortless, crystal-clear voice, earning a lengthy ovation.” 

The Saratogian

 

“But coloratura Marie-Eve Munger, as Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, was all sweetness and light, with a voice that soared with golden tones. Her range, which easily stretched three octaves, and her control, which allowed her to caress her very highest notes as easily as a gentle breeze, made hearing her a great pleasure for the capacity crowd. The many duets she had with either Kohl or LeBron were sensational.”
