Tucker and Krause "mesmerizing" in North Carolina Opera "Die Zauberflöte"


"The vocal prowess demonstrated on last night's stage was wholly mesmerizing. . . Sarah Tucker's interpretation of Pamina had both delicate innocence and rich emotional depth, and I was blown away by her ability to sing extreme pianissimo – kudos to the orchestra as well for matching the dynamic range with sensitivity. . . Rainelle Krause sang the coloratura role with an accuracy and tenacity that I had yet to experience in live theatre, and do not expect to recreate anytime soon. There simply are not enough words to praise how Krause navigated the melismas and piercing high notes, with fantastic musicality and wickedly engaging acting, and after her aria in Act II, the audience cheered for a full thirty seconds." - Classical Voice North Carolina
