In the Press

"Highlighting the uniformly strong, ebullient cast, soprano Joanna Mongiardo handled the coloratura demands of Eurydice with polished ease."
Opera News


"Joanna Mongiardo, who has a voice of impressive size and warmth, as well as a technique with ornament, also has a putty face, capable of expressing several emotions at once, and of making fun of herself while expressing them. Rosalina is a star role in the glorious line and Mongiardo brought the hall to its feet."
Opera Today


"Joanna Mongiardo's soaring soprano imbues Baby Doe's love for Horace with an angelic quality that raises the story's premise from a gold digger's ambitions and a middle aged man's identity crisis to a transcendent romance."
Variety
 

"Mongiardo's sunny lyric sound surely won all hearts, and she rose to Anne's famous leap to high C."
Opera Magazine


"A beacon of light in this dark work, soprano Joanna Mongiardo's pure, well-rounded voice conveyed both innocence and urgency as she pleaded for peace."
The Washington Post
