NEW YEAR'S EVE CONERT 

"The "Czardas" from the same operetta [Die Fledermaus] was similarly well performed by Kristina Malinauskaite."

 LA FAVORITA

"Soprano Kristina Malinauskaite, as Ines, Leonora’s companion, made a star turn of entrance cavatina “Bei raggi lucenti!,” appending not only a bright, high cadenza to it, but also a blazing top note to its cabaletta"

 AIDA

"Kristina Malinauskaite, as the high priestess,..... distinguished [herself] in [the] supporting role and joined the full company in giving us rousing Triumphal Scene ensemble"

MANON

 

"Other notable performances were given by...Kristina Malinauskaite and Perri Sussman and...Hillary Grobe as a trio of Manon's histrionic rivals"

CHANSONS DE BAUDELAIRE CONCERT


"Kristina Malinauskaite’s rendition of Debussy’s Recueillement was rich, delicate and subtle."

CHANSONS DE BAUDELAIRE CONCERT 


" “Recueillement,” pensively set by Claude Debussy and rendered with a sort of time-exempting calm by soprano Kristina Malinauskaite"

MANON

 

"Fine feminine cavorting accompanied Kristina Malinauskaite, Perri Sussman and Hillary Grobe's cheeky huddling as the three actors Poussette, Javotte, and Rosette."

MANON

 

"We very much enjoyed the performances of the three "actresses"--Kristina Malinauskaite as Poussette, Perri Sussman as Javotte, and Hillary Grobe as Rosette."

LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR

 

"It's been over two years since we heard soprano Kristina Malinauskaite sing "Regnava nel silencio" at a Dell'Arte Opera Ensemble recital.  Yesterday we got to hear her perform the entire role, one for which she is well suited."

LA TRAVIATA

 

"Everything was there in the performance--the dignified bearing, the depth of feeling, the brilliant upper register, and above all, the ability to convey the conflict between the high life and the love life.  "È strano....fors'è lui" followed by the cabaletta "Sempre libera" illustrated this very effectively. Ms. Malinauskaite had exemplary control over the dynamics and produced a well modulated portamento."
