The Maharanee in THE LAST SAVAGE

Santa Fe Opera

"Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton displayed a full-throated tone and agile comic timing as the elephantine Maharanee in The Last Savage..."
–Charles Downey, The Washington Post

"As the corpulent, sedan-bound Maharanee, Jamie Barton had a field day, and her full-throated mezzo rang out in the house. When she did alight from her perch and reveal her full measure (the well-padded costume recalled Jane Eaglen in a biiiiiig hoop skirt), she struck real comedic sparks with Mr. Burdette."
–James Sohre, Opera Today

"Versatile and funny mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton stole the show as the enormous Maharanee, ferried around on a pink carriage."
–Charles Downey, IonArts

"Mezzo Jamie Barton was simply all-around wonderful as the Maharani..."
–Sarah Bryan Miller, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
