In Review: Munger enchants in Lyric Opera of Chicago "Cendrillon"

"Best of all was the Godmother of Marie-Eve Munger, whose pinpoint coloratura and saucy characterization bewitched the audience in her every appearance—the woman knows how to flaunt a platinum punk “do” and glitter polish." -Opera News

"No character is more central to conjuring the opera’s wizardry and wonder than the Fairy Godmother, and coloratura soprano Marie-Eve Munger, in her Lyric debut, did just that through vocal gymnastics and saucy body movement. The pyrotechnics of Munger’s singing established the Fairy Godmother’s supernatural powers, while the way she sashayed across the stage – waving that light-tipped wand as if it made the world go ’round – explained why everyone did precisely as the Fairy Godmother instructed." -Chicago Tribune

"Cendrillon's (Siobhan Stagg) sweet voice will hold everyone's attention, while the best performances come from the gorgeous fairy godmother (Marie-Eve Munger) and the wicked stepmother (Elizabeth Bishop)."

-Chicago Parent
