Reviews

“Yet the evening’s true star, at least from where I sat, was soprano Meigui Zhang, who brought both tonal bloom and alert precision to the role of Anne Trulove… To hear Zhang dispatch Anne’s Act 1 solo — a cavatina and cabaletta built on Donizettian lines and culminating in a resplendent high C — was to grasp both the faithfulness of Stravinsky’s modeling and the wonderful liberties he took with it; her rendition of Anne’s final lullaby was nothing short of luminous.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“Meigui Zhang projected a bright, agile soprano with secure top notes; her alluring performance of the Act I aria and cabaletta, ‘No word from Tom…I go, go to him,’ was one of the evening’s highlights.”

Opera News

“Meigui Zhang gave a lovely performance as Barbarina, showing a warm, honeyed soprano in her Act IV aria.’”
