"Radvanovsky and Susanne Mentzer—who had recently completed a run of Marcellinas at the Met—joined in a gutsy “Mira o Norma” that marked the first time the two had sung together anywhere.

“Tulsa native LAUREN MCNEESE, making her second appearance with Tulsa Opera, wonderfully embodies the title role. For the slow and dreamy aria, “Una volta c’era un rè,” McNeese used a rich, rounded, warm tone. . . And for the climactic “Nacqui all’affanno, al pianto,” as Cinderella describes a “happily ever after” for all involved, McNeese’s voice seems to unfold in power and brightness as the aria continues.” – Tulsa World Read full review.
