Measha Brueggergosman reviews

Critical Acclaim Opera

Idomeneo “OA scored the casting coup of the season by engaging Measha Brueggergosman as Elettra. Renowned for her rich, expressive soprano, Brueggergosman here marked not only her OA debut but her first-ever performance in a Mozart opera… As Elettra, Brueggergosman worked completely as part of a team, but when her time to shine arrived, as in the terrifying final aria "D'Oreste, d'Aiace," she unleashed the full power of her voice to phenomenal effect.” Christopher Hoile, Opera News, June 2008 “By far the most publicized cast member has been Measha Brueggergosman and I am happy to report that this is one case where reality matches the hype. This is her local debut in professionally staged opera and will only add to the reputation she has gained in recital and concert. She encompasses all the various moods of Elettra’s scenes, and powers her way thrillingly through the demanding downward runs in D’Oreste, d’Aiace.” Michael Johnson,, May, 2008 “Much pre-production hype has centred on Brueggergosman in one of her rare operatic appearances… The part of Elettra is blessed with a couple of ripsnorter, show-stopping arias, one of them the famous mad scene, and Brueggergosman tears through them. Elettra requires a soprano with dramatic heft to her voice and the singer takes all kinds of chances. She has a commanding, lush, fruity sound that she makes thrilling by deliberately producing ugly, distorted notes to underlie Elettra's anger and frustration. Brueggergosman plays easily with Pynkoski's over-the-top, melodramatic treatment of her character, and by the time her Elettra has covered the waterfront in both fierce movement and singing, she has well-earned the cheers and bravi of the adoring crowd.” Paula Citron, Globe and Mail, April 28, 2008
