Reviews

“As the composer fit to be tied by his beloved new opera being turned into a farce, Hanna Hipp captures the ethereal aspirations of the dedicated artist and makes a captivating case for them in a show-stopping aria at first act’s end.”

Rob Hubbar

Twin Cities

“Polish mezzo Hanna Hipp, in her local debut, was an ardent and sympathetic Composer—perhaps the best of Strauss’s trouser roles—capturing the character’s impetuousness and mercuriality. Passionate without being strident, she made her sudden infatuation with Erin Morley’s Zerbinetta seem plausible.”
