"Opera San José Discovers a Perfect Lucia."

"Soprano Sylvia Lee played the title role, and what an impressive company debut she made. Her acting was completely engrossing, her sweetness which is crushed into derangement, was utterly convincing. 

Her voice is resonant from top to bottom and without a hard edge or a hint of shrillness. She attacked the coloratura passages with clarity and ease, yet was expressive. Her voice alone is well worth the trip to the South Bay and what a pleasure it is to see such an impeccable performance of an iconic role."

-Charlise Tiee, San Francisco Classical Voice

"In soprano Sang-Eun Lee, the company found a Gilda who could place every note with exquisite accuracy while projecting a full palette of innocent haplessness, filial devotion and passion. Nothing she did sounded forced, and she used her splendid vocal equipment subtly and with artistic restraint.
The dramatic sparks came from Lee, whose Gilda was captivating."
