Ophélie - Hamlet - A. Thomas

Minnesota Opera - 2013

Opéra-Théâtre de Metz -  2009

“ This young soprano is clearly one to watch, displaying a sweet, smooth sound throughout her ample range and a convincing characterization of an ingenue clearly struggling with mental illness from the time we meet her.”

Pioneer Press

 

“ As Ophelia, Marie-Eve Munger threatens to steal the show, or at least the second half of it; with her silvery top and agile coloratura, this Canadian soprano has a bright future.”

The Star Tribune

 

“ Canadian soprano Marie-Eve Munger, who’s also right at home with French roles and will make her debut at La Scala this season, was by turns radiant and tormented as Ophélie.  Her voice has the luster of maturity, but also an attractive youthful quality that’s vital to this role.  She was spellbinding in the Act 4 mad scene, where she could unleash all her coloratura talents.”

PostBulletin.com

 

“ Marie-Eve Munger (...) is a moving Ophélie, with full high notes and beautiful suppleness, negociating without weakness vocalises and chromatic scales, and which death scene brought tears to one’s eye. (...)

We’ll remember the intensity of Ophélie’s mad scene (...)

There is no surtitles, which allows us to appreciate the perfect diction from the singers.”
