“Leah Crocetto, a local favorite since her days as an Adler Fellow in the company’s development program, applied supple soprano tone to Liù’s lyric music … floating some gorgeous high notes and making her the most appealing human among so many selfish characters.”

Harvey Steiman – Seen and Heard International

“An audience favorite from her years as a Merola singer and Adler Fellow, Leah Crocetto‘s performance as Liu brought her keenly focused voice to bear on the slave girl’s two arias.”

George Heymont – HuffPost

“Soprano Leah Crocetto’s Liu was both vocally and dramatically persuasive in the role of the self-sacrificing slave girl Liu. Crocetto’s warm, vibrant soprano evoked heartfelt emotion for both Liu’s great arias Signore, ascolta and Tu che di gel sei cinta.”

“Of course, Crocetto, sparked the stage with her sonorous soprano and its deliberate vowel-arched conviction … her suicide came quickly and aptly too – in the midst of those ringing and plaintive tones, we almost doubted it would come, this time around – but alas.”

Lois Silverstein – Operawire

“… soprano Leah Crocetto in a full-voiced, expressive return to the role of the slave girl Liù.”
