“Daniel Lipton’s fleet conducting and Laura Alley’s detailed, traditional production framed a performance of the leading role of Violetta that is among the loveliest I have witnessed on any stage. Cecilia Violetta Lopez’s cool, shimmering soprano easily vaulted the coloratura hurdles of the first act, rocketing to a bright, pingy version of the traditionally interpolated high E-flat at the end of “Sempre libera.” Even more impressive was her quiet legato singing in the second and third acts, unaffected and heartfelt.” – New York Observer
