“Soprano Guanqun Yu, who made an impressive first impression as Countess Rosina in “The Ghosts of Versailles,” is even more impressive in “The Marriage of Figaro.” Her voice possesses clarion brightness as well as dark amber emotionality.”

“I had admired Chinese soprano Guanqun Yu’s Countess Almaviva in the first segment of Los Angeles Opera’s “Figaro Trilogy”. Yet another artist who has sung with Domingo in Europe (as Lucrezia in “I Due Foscari” in Valencia, Spain) she is now an established presence at the New York Met, assaying Leonora in Verdi’s “Il Trovatore” there. Her two great arias Porgi, amor and Dove sono were spellbinding, delivered with the sensitivity and control that suggests this will be a role that is central to her repertory, even as she explores the Verdian dramatic soprano territory.”
