Soprano Maghan McPhee & Mezzo Wallis Giunta “showed genuine dramatic artistry” in National Arts Centre Performances

The National Arts Centre Orchestra (Canada) presented Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream February 12 and 13. The production was conducted by Alexander Shelley (the incoming Music Director) and received great reviews. Here are the quotes that feature Maghan McPhee and Wallis Giunta:

“Soprano Maghan McPhee and Mezzo Wallis Giunta, emerging Canadians, acquitted themselves brilliantly. Both have voices which are strong, technically solid and project well, and both showed genuine dramatic artistry. They were well paired for this performance, as well as well integrated with the orchestra, chorus and with Feore’s spoken work which, alternated in English and French with appropriately complementary surtitles.”

“McPhee and Giunta were evenly matched and prettily frocked”
