Annie Rosen "exemplary" in Central City Opera's "Madama Butterfly"
"Suzuki is an absolutely vital role that is too easy to take for granted. Annie Rosen was exemplary as Butterfly’s servant, her warm sound as comforting and reliable as Suzuki’s love and support for her mistress. In the context of Butterfly’s Japanese environment, she is the understanding common woman who observes Butterfly’s unwavering love for an American with sympathy and apprehension. She was in fact the ideal comprimario, as roles are called that are identified as being “with the primary” characters—musically supportive, solid as a duet partner, never outshining the star."

"Mezzo Annie Rosen’s acting and singing as Suzuki is heart wrenching." -David Marlowe, Marlowe's Musings
