Nicole Cabell press reviews

And there was Nicole Cabell, who showed why she won the Cardiff Singer of the World competition in June with a light and outrageously beautiful soprano that traced the downward arc at the end of Gershwin's "Summertime" in chills along the listener's spine. - Anne Midgette, New York Times

"The concert offered a substantial lure in the form of Nicole Cabell, a stellar soprano making her Philharmonic debut. Ms. Cabell, adorned in a different gown for each half of the program, was consistently alluring, her bright, creamy sound deployed with a beguiling ease. In Gustave Charpentier’s “Depuis le jour” (from “Louise”), the Jewel Song from Gounod’s “Faust” and Donizetti’s “Prendi, per me sei libero” (from “L’Elisir d’Amore”) Ms. Cabell was ideal, with an attentive partner in Mr. Tovey. Warmly received throughout, Ms. Cabell drew the audience to its feet with her encore, Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro” (from “Gianni Schicchi”)." —Steve Smith, The New York Times, July 7, 2010-Summertime Classics Concert-La Dolce Vita with the New York Philharmonic

“Cabell, with her creamy sound and poised line, effectively conveyed her character's pathos and resolve, and she was warmly applauded.” —John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, March 18, 2010-Countess Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro at Lyric Opera of Chicago

“Nicole Cabell offered a superb Adina; a splash of cream in her middle register (at times almost eerily reminiscent of the young Mirella Freni) has grown richer, and her performance was graced with liquid trills in the Act I ensemble and point-on articulation of the passagework in ‘Il mio rigor dimentica..." —Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News, April 2010-Adina in L'Elisir d'Amore at Lyric Opera of Chicago
