Kathleen Brett reviews

Critical Acclaim

Musetta, La Bohème “Kathleen Brett's Musetta was more breezy and saucy than voluptuous. From her first appearance in Act II, at the top of the tall staircase in the middle of Wolfgang Skaliki's colorful but claustrophobic set, she ruled the day.” Bill Rankin, Opera Canada, May/Jun 2006
Blanche, Dialogues of the Carmelites “Vancouver Opera assembled an exceptionally strong cast, headed by BC native Kathleen Brett. Seen on opening night, her Blanche was an intriguing mix of vulnerability and inner strength, which served her character well in her final hours of need. Her superb vocalism with its blazing high register was a pleasure.” Joseph So, La Scena Musicale, Jan 2006
“Soprano Kathleen Brett gave a fine, vulnerable interpretation of the fearful young aristocrat Blanche, who joins the order of nuns more out of personal anxiety than faith. She sang tentatively at first and grew into the role, mirroring the opera's dramatic shape to a T.” Elissa Poole, Globe and Mail, Nov 2005
Susanna, Le Nozze di Figaro “American bass-baritone Kristopher lrmiter (Figaro) and Canadian soprano Kathleen Brett (Susanna) were the true stars of the show. Their great chemistry and polished acting brought convincing expression to their roles. Brett has a strong delivery style, accurate and pure-toned, and was totally riveting…” Gwenda Nemerofsky, Opera Canada, May/Jun 2006
