Vocalists — Soprano

“Gulnara, an even bigger soprano role that Tamara Wilson carried off with a large, pointed, slightly metallic sound…Wilson and [Michael] Fabiano really showed their stuff in a duet that involved a lot of posturing (“I will free you from prison!” “I scorn your help!”) as a springboard to some enthralling Verdian fireworks.” —Anne Midgette, Washington Post, March 10, 2014 - Gulnara in 'Il Corsaro' with Washington National Opera

“To be sure, parts of Il Trovatore were stellar and first and foremost on this list would be Tamara Wilson as the lovelorn Leonora. What's a girl to do when she's wooed by a count but loves a troubadour? Trapped in a love triangle and in the midst of a war, Wilson soars as if she might with only her voice tear open the prison doors to release her lover. Later, whispering to Manrico as she dies, a hush fell over the hall and we all strained in our seats to get closer.” —Joseph Campana, CultureMap, April 27, 2013 - Leonora in 'Il trovatore' at Houston Grand Opera

“Wilson made a stunning Ravinia debut as Elettra...Most singers who take on this demanding role play Elettra as a shrieking harpy, but Wilson never pushed her plush, voluminous soprano to ugly effect, conveying the princess' fury with the needed spinto thrust but softening the sound for an affecting "Idol mio, se ritroso," in which Elettra imagines a happy life in exile with Idamante.” —John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, August 18, 2012 - Elettra in 'Idomeneo' with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival
