Opera News hails Zabala, Morgan in review of Florentine Opera's "Sister Carrie"
"There were some excellent performances. The title role is a tricky wicket, something of a turn-of-the-century Manon. Adriana Zabala created a sympathetic Carrie whose actions were entirely understandable. Zabala’s warmly-textured lyric mezzo registered enchantingly, with an easy fluidity reflective of her capability in Baroque music, and she resonated to text insightfully. She was given a lovely aria “Everything is Paid For” in which she deftly revealed the girl’s frightened need to find a safe place. Matt Morgan’s attractive tenor . . . emerged appealingly as the “pleasant faced” object of Carrie’s early social ambitions." -Opera News Read full review.
