REVIEWS

 

Lucia,  LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR, , Teatre Municipal LAteneu - Igualada, Spain

 

An excellent cast of singers, the most outstanding - soprano Candace OConnor.  Most remarkable was the expert union of her voice and instrument [flute cadenza].  The production was a perfect combination of professionalism, sensitivity, artistry, beauty, taste and talent

                                                                   CULTURA, Igualada

 

Supported by an international cast, the brilliant voice of Candace OConnor successfully combined the opera [the story] with the music. 

 

                                                                    MIRANT, Igualada

 

Konstanza, DIE  ENTFUHRUNG  AUS DEM  SERAIL, Theatre de Cluses, France

 

Konstanza, interpreted by Candace OConnor, knew just how to conquer the public, first in the very impressive aria of the first act, then in a second more celebrated one in the second act

 

                                                                     MUSIQUE, Cluses

 

Gilda,, RIGOLETTO,, Centre Culturel, Oyonnax, France

 

Candace OConnor, a superb Gilda, a blond seductress, sometimes conspirator, sometimes courtesan before becoming the expiratory victim

                                                                 LE PROGRES, Oyonnax

 

Gilda, RIGOLETTO, Theatre di Libourne, France

 

Candace OConnor played, sang and enchanted the assembly.

                                                                   LIBOURNE, Libourne

 

Georgia, TERRA INCOGNITA, The Intar Theater, NYC

 

The performance was brightened by the quality of the singiing, particularly the strong textured soprano of OConnor

 

                                                                  THE STAR LEDGER, NJ

 

Fiordiligi, COSI FAN  TUTTE, Cosmao Dumanoir, Lorent, France

 

Candace OConnor, whose acting ability finely portrays the light character of Fiordiligi

 

                                                               LE TELEGRAMME, Lorient

 

 

 

Goddess Juno, THE TEMPEST, Mark taper Forum, LA, CA

 

..... is responsible for the frosting on that stirring scene

 

                                                                         Variety, LA

 

Princess Margaret, THE STUDENT PRINCE, Orlando Opera

 

Candace OConnor was a show stopper of Kom Novak regal beauty.  Candace had just enough to sing to suggest that she might better have been the Kathy.

 

                                                                 WEEKEND OUTLOOK, FL

 

Queen of the Night, THE MAGIC FLUTE, Cosmao Dumanoir, Lorient, France

 

Candace OConnor, Queen of the Night, was a virtuoso of high singing maneuvers

 

                                                               LE TELEGRAMME, Lorent

 

Her voice was imposing without veil.

 

                                                                QUEST FRANCE, Lorent

 

Queen of the Night, THE MAGIC FLUTE, Colorado Opera Festival

 

Candace OConnor hits the top notes in the Queen of the Nights arias full force and sings them as if she could climb another octave with total ease.

                                                         CAMERA COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

 

...exhibits mastery of range in handling the vocal gymnastics of her role

                                                               GAZETTE TELEGRAPH, CO

 

Queen of the Night, THE MAGIC FLUTE, LAOT Opera Studio, LA, CA

 

.....disclosed fluent coloratura, an easy top F, and sound dramatic instincts as Mozarts Queen of the Night

 

                                                               LOS ANGELES TIMES, CA

 

POPS CONCERT, Colorado Opera Festival

 

This evening of SONGS FOR A SUMMER NIGHT was dominated by OConnor.  She dazzled and amazed with ridiculously difficult arias, not the least of which she nailed high G# above high C.
