“If there is any soprano who knows how to sing with raw emotion it is Kirstine Opolais. While “Manon Lescaut’s” production could have marred the performances, Opolais shined through any distractions and brought out Puccini’s character. In “Madama Butterfly,” Opolais sang with so much passion and emotion that it was hard to contain the applause. The intensity that Opolais brings to each of her heroines is incomparable and she continued to show why she is the leading Puccini singer in the world.”
