"The start of the Met seasons is always an exciting time. A new production of a major classic to kick off the year, followed, usually, by a slew of other classic productions. Usually, we also get a new star making a prominent debut, as is the case with mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught, who is coming to the Met as Nicklausse in 'Les Contes d’Hoffmann.'"
"Tara Erraught sang the entire programme from memory, and her performance was notable for her highly communicative manner, creating a sense of character in each of the items and conveying a real feeling of engagement, enjoyment and enthusiasm. Singing with a beautifully modulated and bright toned mezzo-soprano, there was a freshness to her lieder performances in the first half, which made even the more routine items seem something special. She is clearly a great story-teller..." Planet Hughill
