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 the Mail - Canadian Opera Company, 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 Star.com - Canadian Opera Company, April 2013
Anna Christy shone in the soubrette role of Lisette... Paul Pelkonen - Superconductor Classical and Opera - MET La Rondine, January 2013
Praised by the New York Times as’ nimble of voice, body and spirit”, soprano Anna Christy continues to impress and delight audiences with an extraordinary blend of sparkling voice, powerful stage presence and innate musicality.
Ms. Christy begins the 2012/13 season as Cleopatra in a new production of Handel’s Julius Caesar at English National Opera, followed by concerts of Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortileges and Stravinsky’s Le Rossignol ,with Charles Dutoit conducting the NHK Symphony in Tokyo, Japan. At home in the U.S., she returns . . . to the Metropolitan Opera to portray Lisette in the Nicholas Joel production of Puccini’s La Rondine. In the spring, Toronto audiences will hear Ms. Christy in one of her signature roles; Lucia, in the David Alden production of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor; a role for which she has received the highest critical acclaim: “Her dazzlingly sketched coloratura in the mad scene is electrifying.” (The Daily Telegraph, U.K.). Ms. Christy closes the season as Emily Webb in Ned Rorem’s Our Town with Central City Opera, followed by performances of le Feu, la Princesse and le Rossignol in Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortileges at the Saito Kinen Festival, with Seiji Ozawa conducting.
