Cecelia Hall

— Mezzo-Soprano

Mozart C Minor Mass and Requiem, Mostly Mozart Festival: "Cecelia Hall introduced easy flexibility, arresting poise and enveloping warmth in the mezzo-soprano challenges."
Martin Bernheimer, Financial Times, August 22, 2016

The Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos, Opera Theatre St. Louis: "Cecelia Hall was loudly received and well loved by the audience for her unfailingly musical and stylistically superb Composer."
James Sohre, Opera Today, June 27, 2016

La Finta Giardiniera, Santa Fe Opera: "In the trouser role of Ramiro, Cecelia Hall sang with a purity and evenness of tone that unexpectedly summoned up the tragic aura of opera seria."
Simon Williams, Opera News August 8, 2015

"It was wonderful to see DiDonato and Cecelia Hall together at the start of Act 2: two mezzos in trouser roles, one securely established as one of the leading artists of our day and another who seems on the brink of stardom. Hall was sterling as the selfless Annio, singing with a creamy rich tone and showing dramatic acuity throughout."
Lawrence A. Johnson, Chicago Classical Review, March 6, 2014

"Cecelia Hall offered a stunning rendering of the title character, graced by prodigious technical assurance across the mezzo range and an unexaggerated, convincingly masculine characterization. The evening's musical zenith was the duet "Cara/caro, ti dono in pegno il cor," which found Hall coruscating down the scale with absolute precision and blending beautifully with the warrior's inamorata, the princess Agilea (Italian soprano Manuela Bisceglie)."
Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News, June 2012
