Marcy Richardson

“To witness Richardson's intensely physical performance as she flexes her operatic muscle without missing a note is worth the price of admission alone." (Company XIV-Nutcracker Rouge-Pete Hempstead, Theater Mania)
"Soprano Marcy Richardson (Dalinda) gave the best all-around performance. I mean no disrespect to her talents and charm when I say she made a perfect secondadonna here — just what the role needs, and in good sound and style." (Ariodante, The Princeton Festival David Shengold, Opera News-)
"The light-voiced soprano Marcy Richardson was the most natural comedian, playing the much-adored Poppea with a malleable face and gentle manner." (Agrippina, OperaMission-Zachary Woolfe, New York Times)
“Ms. Richardson's clear, pealing voice keenly conveyed longing, vitriol, and finally, joy. Hers, after all, was the evening's only happy ending." (Scarlatti’s Ariana-Steve Smith, New York Times)
