CLO’s ‘Rosenkavalier’ opens the heavens in New London
"... as Sophie, Holden was perfectly cast, teenage-fresh in both character and voice, making the most of the ringing top to ensembles given to her role. This is a singer who will be welcomed should she return to the CLO stage."
"Gotschall and Holden were beautifully balanced in the heavenly Act 2 duet in the presentation of the rose scene, “Mit Ihren Augen voll Tränen,” and their final, calm love duet, “Ist ein Traum.”
"The final trio is one of opera’s best-known set pieces, and Friday, the CLO did it justice. From Callahan-Hardman’s commanding and centered opening, through the layers of chromaticism with Holden soaring, the ensemble crafted wave after wave of unhurried, pure pleasure." ~Milton Moore, theday.com, New London
"The third member of the love triangle was the Sophie of Katrina Holden, who also climbed into the stratosphere with ease, and -- thankfully--- avoided the annoying soubrette mannerisms that can creep into the role. As anticipated, their last act Trio was the highlight." ~Larry Kellum, CT Classical Magazine
