• 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.
  • As Fiordiligi, soprano Sarah Tucker also shows her range and vocal power in the challenging first act aria “Come scoglio,” then exhibits her coloratura skills in the famous “Per pietà” aria.
  • Sarah Tucker, a vocally glorious Micaëla in the company’s well-received Carmen, gave Fiordiligi a passionate drive that illuminated her character, notably in her famous aria of fidelity “Come scoglio.”
  • With gleaming high notes and powerful phrasing, Sarah Tucker’s glorious Act III aria Je dis que rien ne m’épouvante brought ferocious applause from the Civic Theatre audience...
  • Sarah Tucker was a graceful Adina with a beautifully rounded, well-supported soprano that meshed perfectly...
  • Sarah Tucker portrayed an absolutely riveting Micaëla, balancing lovely tone and delivery with a well-rounded character of virtue, beauty and gumption.
  • Sarah Tucker’s bright and eager soprano was an asset to the cast as Jano.
  • Tucker’s portrayal refutes the old trope that “good” equals “boring”; her Micaëla won over Saturday’s audience with her polite but firm assertion of her boundaries in the first act and her deft handling of Don José in the third. She sang both scenes beautifully.
  • Sarah Tucker’s Micaëla also stood out. Her gleaming soprano, long blond braids and simple dress cried innocence amidst the morally ambiguous surroundings. Her passionate “Je dis que rein ne m’épouvante” showed impeccable pitch and phrasing.
  • Also making standout debuts are soprano Sarah Tucker, with her heart-rending and soulful performance as Micäela, the virgin country girl Don José discards in his lust for Carmen...
  • But if Sarah Tucker is singing it, every note is something special. She has one of the loveliest soprano voices I have heard in years and she brings great depth of feeling to a part that is so often tedious.
