Puccini’s Madama Butterfly (Washington National Opera, 2017)

“Allegra De Vita displayed a sizable, velvety mezzo in her few lines as Kate.”

 Tim Smith, Opera News, <August, 2017>

 “Mezzo Allegra De Vita portrayed an enjoyably unpleasant Kate Pinkerton, who could clearly care less about Cio-Cio San’s plight despite a few required niceties.  Turns out Butterfly Act III works just fine without a detour to feel sorry for the white lady.”

Alek Baker, Parterre, <May 8, 2017>

“Allegra De Vita as Kate Pinkerton acquitted herself well.”

 OperaGene, <May 8, 2017>

“Connecticut native mezzo-soprano Allegra De Vita portrayed Kate Pinkerton as a haughty late-Victorian figure with few outward signs of sympathy for Cio-Cio-San. De Vita sang ‘Glielo dirai?’ appealingly but coldly.”

Joseph Newsome, Voix des Arts, <May 6, 2017>
