"Sans oublier l’américaine Mandy Brown au caractère bien trempé"

"Not forgetting the American, Mandy Brown, of strong character"

Forum Opera

"Soprano Mandy Brown did the honors on the delightful poem of the Mahler finale, describing the feast in a child's vision of heaven, complete with fish that swim up to be caught on fasting days. Her voice was particularly suited to the guilty dessert of Samuel Barber's ultra-nostalgic Knoxville: Summer of 1915, which went with knockout profiteroles of cream and strawberries, recalling the desert mentioned in the James Agee poem set by Barber."

"Mandy Brown was also consistently impressive, singing a hilarious and charming version of Strauss’ “Spiel’ Ich die Unschuld vom Lande.” Her selection from Barber’s song cycle “Hermit Songs” was lovely."

"Mandy Brown as the Fords’ daughter, Nannetta, and Jon Jurgens as Fenton, the man she plans to marry, as soon as her mother disabuses her husband of his own choice to be the groom, both had young, supple voices which added beautiful tones to their music’s kinetic qualities."

"Mandy Brown’s lovely, bell-like lyric soprano and charming stage presence were completely winning."

As to production itself, the singing was exhilarating--the trio about the hatbox that included Mandy Brown (Lady with a Hand Mirror), Ashley Briggs (Lady with a Cake Box), and Ilene Pabon (Lady with a Hat Box) nearly levitated the Dresser from her seat but every singer made significant contribution to this performance.

"Mandy Brown, in the title role of Amelia, has a lovely clear soprano that is both light and very strong. Her acting kept the audience in stitches, truly adding to her character and bringing this somewhat shallow character to life."
