Le temps des lilas
El Mirar de la Maja
Alabama native Susanna Phillips has won wide praise for a voice of striking beauty and sophistication. Recipient of the Metropolitan Opera's 2010 Beverly Sills Artist Award, she scored a sparkling triumph at the Met this season with a reprisal of her signature Musetta in La Bohème. Phillips commands a rich and velvety soprano, nimble and entrancing at the top, and her phrasing and sound production are of the first order. A thrilling Cal Performances recital debut with an artist who "demonstrates rare stylistic fluency, canny pathos, and dynamic finesse. Susanna Phillips. Remember the name" (Financial Times, London).
