2012 Richard Tucker Gala

Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall

"There were also performances by other recent winners of grants and prizes from the Tucker Foundation, among them the mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, whose big, free, earthy voice was well suited to “O Mon Fernand” from Donizetti’s opera La Favorite." 
–Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times 

"Also highly impressive among the relative newcomers was mezzo Jamie Barton, who displayed a plush, impassioned sound in the aria "O mon Fernand," from Donizetti's La favorite and in the septet (sung here with just six soloists) from Offenbach's Les contes d'Hoffmann."
–Mike Silverman, Associated Press
