As Countess Almaviva in Le Nozze di Figaro
Meagan Miller was a sad, regal Countess whose ‘Dove sono’ brought tears to my eyes.
A primary source of this elegance was soprano Meagan Miller… Still in the very early stages of what promises to be a spectacular career, she has attractive stage presence, a fine sense of character and voice of unusual beauty.
As Countess Almaviva, Meagan Miller played the part with stately elegance. Her most expressive moments came in the charming letter duet with Susanna and her moving ‘Dove sono.’
None of these difficulties affected the performance of soprano Meagan Miller, who sang the role of the Countess Almaviva with aristocratic bearing, delicate longing and quiet, digified forbearance in the teeth of the Count’s outside activities. The sheer loveliness of this Countess and the beauty of her singing in the famous arias suggested that this husband was no mere philanderer, but a genuine madman.
