Agnese in BEATRICE DI TENDA
The Collegiate Chorale at Carnegie Hall
"The mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton sang Agnese. Her warm, rich voice was well suited to the music, and she showed fire and feistiness..."
–Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
"Barton stops time through lyric transformation. She makes clear the power of music to do what is physically impossible. You can't raise the stakes much higher than she does. She transports us into an unfamiliar world of sound and spirit. Throughout the evening, Barton held us in stunned admiration."
–Susan Hall, Berkshire Fine Arts
"Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, as Agnese, also used her warm and powerful voice dynamically. In her melodic Act 1 duet with Orombello, she brought emotion to the exchange as her rich voice filled the hall."
–Beck Feibelman, The Clyde Fitch Report
"This was a demonstration of some very talented singers showing their abilities. Jamie Barton boasted the most impressive instrument in the cast, a fruity, deep mezzo of considerable volume. She has powerful top notes and sang her music with conviction..."
