Babcock excels in two productions of "The Falling and the Rising"

Arizona Opera

"The terrific mezzo-soprano Audrey Babcock goes by “Toledo,” a nickname from her commanding officer that stuck. She’s a loner, she tells the wounded soldier, the only girl in a family of military men whom she followed into the service and to the frontline. And while she puts on a tough facade, she’s deeply moved and impacted when her fellow soldiers sacrifice their lives during an enemy attack to save hers." – Arizona Daily Star



Opera Carolina

"Mezzo-soprano Audrey Babcock exuded intensity as Staff Sergeant First Class Toledo, steely and tough as her nickname, which figures into the boot camp segment of her aria." – Art on My Sleeve
