Carmina Burana with Chicago's Grant Park Festival
"Claire de Sévigné’s lovely, refined voice made “In Trutina” the ethereal centerpiece it should be... The Canadian soprano displayed surprising reserves of vocal power and flexibility,with a stunning attack on the stratospheric coloratura of the penultimate “Dulcissime.”
- Chicago Classical Review, Lawrence A. Johnson.
“Carmina Burana” depends on the strengths of its vocal soloists as well, and in this regard soprano Claire de Sevigne created the most rapturous moments of the night, by far. In “Stetit puella,” her exquisitely shaped tones and radiant upper-register singing very nearly made you forget the orchestral-choral tempests that preceded her. The high notes she floated in “In trutina” and the melodic ornamentation she articulated in the stratosphere of her instrument in “Dulcissime” were serenity incarnate."
-Chicago Tribune, Howard Reich.
Unfortunately due to COVID 19 restrictions Claire's role and house debut singing La Fée in Massenet's Cendrillon with the Lucern Theatre will be cancelled.
