Sara Jakubiak


Vocalists — Soprano

“American soprano Sara Jakubiak, making her Bavarian State Opera debut, was a sublime Eva, her tone radiant, her personality incandescent.” —Jeffrey A. Leipsic, Opera News, August 2016 - Eva in 'Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg' at Bayerische Staatsoper

“Humiliated, seduced by force, yet the desperately loving spouse is soprano Sara Jakubiak’s vocally strong presence. Her prayer aria on the grave of her mother is one of the most captivating moments of the opera.” —Klaus Ackermann, Offenbach Post, February 2, 2016 - Lina in 'Stiffelio' at Oper Frankfurt

“On the stage, especially Sara Jakubiak shone as Agathe. Jakubiak sang wonderfully word clear and showed her soprano can convince in all situations with velvety timbre and impeccable technique.” —Daniel Url, BachTrack, May 4, 2015 - Agathe in 'Der Freischütz' with Christian Thielemann at Semperoper Dresden

“Sara Jakubiak plays and sings the role of Marta with the almost surreal aura of the shimmering beautiful undead. She delivers a lyrical human portrayal in the extended camp scenes where she comforts her female inmates and for her lover Tadeusz as “Madonna of the Barracks…” —Hans-Klaus Jung Heinreich, Frankfurter Rundschau, March 2, 2015 - Marta in 'The Passenger' at Oper Frankfurt

“If the most powerful moments come from ENO’s superlative orchestra, it is not for want of interest on stage, especially when Sara Jakubiak’s Marie is singing. This luscious-voiced American, new to these shores, is an exciting performer, with a radiant upper register and good diction – she must be invited back.” —Andrew Clark, Financial Times, May 13, 2013 - Marie in 'Wozzeck' at the English National Opera
