MIcaëla — carmen

 

2017 performances

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, LA Opera  |  Los Angeles, CA

Conductor: James Conlon

Reviews:

“Soprano Amanda Woodbury was an ideal Micaëla, both physically and dramatically. A former member of the company’s Domingo-Thornton (now Domingo-Colburn-Stein) Young Artist Program, Woodbury sang the role as a young artist in 2013. Four years later, she has enhanced the role with her own development and maturity. A more girlish Micaëla back then, the role has matured with her, as she added depth to the overall static character, particularly in Act III. Her aria, “Je dis que rien ne m’épouvante” was the most beautiful moment of the three hour and 25 minute production.” — Arya Roshanian, OperaWire

Reviews:

"Because I am a supporter of new talent, I will begin with soprano Amanda Woodbury who portrayed Micaëla for the evening. Both her warm focused voice and presence carried past the orchestra pit far into the audience. She captured the essence of Micaëla — the girl Don José’s mother wanted him to marry, and should have." —Carol Jean Delmar, Opera Theater Ink
