As Magda in La rondine

La rondine

The most compelling reason to see Puccini’s La rondine, which the Eastman Opera Theatre is currently staging at the Eastman Theatre, is the chance to hear the terrific soprano Jennifer Gliere….

This young vocalist sang with a powerful voice that soared effortlessly over the large, throbbing orchestra. And her tone was sumptuous, silvery, and splendid. Just as importantly, Gliere proved to be a sensitive artist who knows how to turn a phrase while giving urgent meaning to the text. Her performance reminded me that many great artists, including René Fleming, got their start as Eastman students singing on that stage. So I heartily recommend Gliere to you.

Sunset over the Hudson River

L’amico Fritz

In its lowest register, [Gliere’s] voice is as plush and warm as a velvet chair. It’s silvery at the top. She can sing softly for sustained periods even when her notes are in the stratosphere. And she can send fortissimo phrases over the orchestra. Whenever she left the stage, I felt crushed.
