In Review: Marino delights in Santa Fe Opera's "Falstaff"

Updated: Nov 10


“Meg Page is a character who can get lost in the ensemble, but Megan Marino’s dynamic portrayal made her a comic force of her own.” -Opera News


"Marino has a gift for creating unique, three-dimensional characterizations and made Mrs. Page more memorable than usual as a result. A terrific Cherubino in last season’sThe Marriage of Figaro, Marino also seized on one of Mrs. Page’s few moments in the vocal spotlight — announcing the supposed arrival of Mr. Ford during the Act II finale — to offer a very funny portrayal of intentionally bad acting." - Santa Fe New Mexican


“Over the course of the evening Meg Page, sung and acted with zest by mezzo-soprano Megan Marino, became much more than the necessary fourth for an ensemble. She was the most eye-catching of a wonderful array of singing actors.” - Seen and Heard International


"Megan Marino brought a vivacious mezzo and stage savvy to spare to the role of Meg Page. This is the least fully realized of the female characters, and the fact that she stood out favorably in the quartet is a testament to her poised, lively stage presence."
