Catherine Campolin Reviews

"…I have watched a dozen Violettas bite the dust, as many Mimis expire in Giacomo Puccini's La Bohème, and more Don José's dagger in Georges Bizet's Romani saga.
   But not one of them was as convincing as Callas when it came time for Violetta to kick the bucket.
   Soprano Catherine Campolin, however, came close to the mark in this production of Puccini's Suor Angelica,…
   …Campolin gave a highly compelling performance. Making her entrance as a humble acolyte, she later made her exit as a courageous martyr, choosing death by poison above imprisonment in a hostile environment. And she died magnificently, slowly relinquishing life as she sagged to the stage in a swoon of religious ecstasy. In the final moment, she had the members of the capacity audience on the edge of their seats."

"As Angelica, Catherine Campolin negotiated some high-lying writing skilfully…"

Lloyd Dykk - Vancouver Sun

"In the role of Lucia, debuting Canadian soprano Catherine Campolin thrilled her listeners with her deep and moving portrayal of Donizetti's tragic heroine, for which the 25-year-old received a standing ovation."
