In Review: Thurman in Opera Philadelphia's Barber of Seville

“herein lay a castwide problem: So much theatrical multitasking in a production like this is going to take its toll somewhere, especially early in the run, and here it was the singing. . . except for Katrina Thurman’s Berta (who made her often-cut aria pull its comic weight).” - Philadelphia Inquirer “I cannot fail to mention the delightful Berta of Katrina Thurman. Berta is more an acting role than a singing one, although Miss Thurman sang and acted beautifully.” - BachTrack

“...soprano Katrina Thurman’s Berta, who took what might be considered a cameo or throwaway role and transformed it into a lustrous showcase of all her assets.” - Operatoonity
