Cecelia Hall

Cecelia Hall


Vocalists — Mezzo-Soprano

It was wonderful to see DiDonato and Cecelia Hall together at the start of Act 2: two mezzos in trouser roles, one securely established as one of the leading artists of our day and another who seems on the brink of stardom. Hall was sterling as the selfless Annio, singing with a creamy rich tone and showing dramatic acuity throughout." —Lawrence A. Johnson, Chicago Classical Review, March 6, 2014

"Cecelia Hall is a real find for the Composer, her enameled mezzo strong and admirably deployed. " —Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News, May 5, 2013

"Cecelia Hall, a member of Lyric Opera's Ryan Center, offered a stunning rendering of the title character, graced by prodigious technical assurance across the mezzo range and an unexaggerated, convincingly masculine characterization. The evening's musical zenith was the duet "Cara/caro, ti dono in pegno il cor," which found Hall coruscating down the scale with absolute precision and blending beautifully with the warrior's inamorata, the princess Agilea (Italian soprano Manuela Bisceglie)." —Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News, June 2012
