Opera News commends Livengood's Baba in "The Medium" with the Phoenicia Festival

09.30.2016

 

"From her Mama Rose-style entrance up the aisle, Victoria Livengood imbued Mme. Flora with her wonted theatrical energy. Her barrelhouse contralto suits the role's scary moments; but, admirably, she brought legato-based soft tone to quieter passages, furnishing welcome contrast. Livengood is a seasoned Menotti interpreter who worked with the composer on this opera and The Consul and has also appeared in Maria Golovin. Her phrasing of the disintegrating fraud's final soliloquy proved expertly judged. She made every syllable of the text crystal clear, like an old-style Broadway professional."
