“To begin the performance, Ms Woodbury gave a lively rendition of “Je veux vivre” from Gounod’s “Romeo et Juliette,” currently running at the Met and which Woodbury performed in January. Woodbury’s crystal clear tone and immaculate coloratura matched her youthful vibrancy of the young lover.”
“With the room still heavy after the Onegin aria, Woodbury next matched the stillness with “The Magic Flute’s” “Ach, ich fuhl’s”. In contrast to her first aria, she continued to show her emotional versatility and innate musicality through her perfect ebb and flow phrasing with crisp German diction.
"All should hope to be lucky enough to hear more of Woodbury and Panikkar in the future.” —James Monroe Števko, OperaWire
