"Soprano Anna Christy was spectacular in the title role, which includes one of opera's most famous mad scenes in the final act."
John Terauds - Musical Toronto - April 2013
"Anna Christy's Lucia - brilliantly sung and presented"
"Christy's Lucia (Alden built the entire production around her) is subtle, clear, immensely powerful, but never overbearing. Her coloratura voice is so perfectly controlled that we stopped listening for its pyrotechnics, and just concentrated on its drama and artistry. The famous Mad Scene has been more flashily spectacular, but seldom more convincing."
Robert Harris - The Globe and Mail - April 2013
"I had nothing but admiration for Anna Christy's Lucia, not just for the pain she endured in the evening's first half, but for the way she turned her legendary mad scene into a piece of searing dramatic emotion, rather than a mere display of extraordinary vocal technique (which Christy also possesses.)"
Richard Ouzounian - The Toronto Star - April 2013
"Simply put, she is stunning and delivers a pitch-perfect Lucia. Christy is spellbinding, perfectly channeling both Lucia's innocent naïvete and her terrifying, seething intensity during the famous mad scene. Her expressive coloratura is the vocal highlight of the performance."
