What others say!
From Arthur Levy, voice faculty, Mannes College: " This program offers an essential, indispensable part of the artistic jigsaw puzzle for the young singer to tap into the courage, imagination and their musical and dramatic generosity. This culminates in a consistently beautiful high level performance led by renowned conductors and directors."
The New York Times:
"This production of 'Hoffmann,' with its daunting tenor role, was part of the Martina Arroyo Foundation’s Prelude to Performance program. The foundation has offered reliably high-quality productions since its founding almost a decade ago; standards were particularly impressive here." Vivien Schweitzer, New York Times
