Houston Grand Opera

"Jamie Barton gives a definitive, strong and passionate performance as Fricka, a role that puts her clearly in the upper echelon of great singers."
–Theodore Bale, CultureMap Houston

"Jamie Barton is the Fricka of dreams, her mezzo warm and ample."
–Scott Cantrell, The Dallas Morning News

"Jamie Barton displayed a big, resonant mezzo as Fricka."
–Heidi Waleson, The Wall Street Journal

"Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton's full-throatedness enabled Fricka, Wotan's wife, to equal his stature."
–Steven Brown, Houston Chronicle

"Exceptionally thrilling [is] Barton's imperious Fricka..."
–D. L. Groover, Houston Press

"The superb cast is one of the strongest HGO has ever assembled. Most impressive were Stefan Margita's flexible and precise Loge, Jamie Barton's confident, steely Fricka and Christopher Purves' twisted, sinister Alberich."
–Marcus Karl Maroney, ConcertoNet
