LAURETTA - Puccini's Gianni Schicchi

  • Chicago Opera Theatre (map)

“Emily Birsan pealed her way through Lauretta’s music prettily, and looked like a vintage Barbie fresh from the box.”


". . . Emily Birsan’s stunning rendition of “O mio babbino caro,” easily the most delightful beautiful moment of the entire production."


"The other standout, vocally speaking, was soprano Emily Birsan, a Lyric Ryan Opera Center alumna, who chirped the opera's greatest hit, Lauretta's aria "O mio babbino caro" ("Oh, hear me, dearest daddy," in the awkward translation employed here) very prettily."
