“Yet the evening’s true star… was soprano Meigui Zhang, who brought both tonal bloom and alert precision to the role of Anne Trulove… Her rendition of Anne’s final lullaby was nothing short of luminous.” – San Francisco Chronicle

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.’”
