“Ms. Opolais seemed to live with it, growing in stature as the evening went on and radiating the kind of aura – one that demands you watch her, and sympathize with her – that defines a star… She is a performer with a tremendous future ahead of her. New York will be lucky to have her.”

Reviews: Madama Butterfly – Metropolitan Opera

May 20, 2014

“Ms. Opolais’s voluptuous, expressive voice soared over Puccini’s dense orchestration, and there were riveting moments in her portrayal, as the naïve young Butterfly evolves from a shy, love-struck girl to a heartbroken, outraged mother whose faith in her husband is shattered.”

-Vivien Schweitzer, The New York Times

Reviews: La bohème – Metropolitan Opera

May 5, 2014

“With effectively zero preparation, Ms. Opolais stepped right in and almost instantly meshed with the existing cast . . . The range of nuance and emotion Ms. Opolais was able to convey was quite impressive, particularly since she’d just endured Cio-cio-san’s heartbreaking decline and fall only a few hours earlier . . . Her lovely, youthful, effortlessly nuanced voice was a perfect match to her portrayal of the physically weak yet idealistic and loving Mimi.”
