Träume: Opera News Critic’s Choice for March 2021
A pleasure… exquisite piano singing… singing with beauty and grace… I’d like to hear her in this full role (Elisabeth/Tannhäuser)… I look forward to hearing more from her.Opera News
“Dich, teure Halle” begins joyfully, turns dark in the middle section, then ends in more joy. Gleich sings the role sensitively and with admirable nuance. “Allmacht’ge Jungfrau” is even more delicately sung with rich emotion as Elizabeth dooms herself to self-sacrifice. Gleich’s brightness of tone is very well suited to the music and the character. I’d like to hear her in this full role.
