In Review: Marino "perfect for her role as Carmen"

"The new production, titled The Threepenny Carmen, turns the familiar opera into a modern-day look at the lives of people who are caught up in the hedonism of a local dive bar that proudly proclaims itself to be a purveyor of sex, drugs and music, and which features the lovely, seductive, cynical chanteuse Carmen, portrayed by Megan Marino... Marino was perfect for her role as Carmen. She could be emotionally cold, yet sensual at the same time. Her crystalline mezzo was powerful, even while masked. She embodied Carmen." - Bachtrack, 16 April 2021
