ACCLAIM

"Stealing scenes on opening night were Phillip Addis’ Mercutio and Gina Perregrino as Romeo’s page, Stéphano." (Roméo et Juliette)

Twin Cities Pioneer Press

"Gina Perregrino is cocky and swaggering as the young page Stéphano, the unwitting instigator of the opera’s climactic violence." (Roméo et Juliette)

Twin Cities Arts Reader

"Gina Perregrino a sprightly Stephano." (Roméo et Juliette)

Star Tribune

“Gina Perregrino made the most of her stage time as the servant girl Paquette, her attractive mezzo contributing solidly to the musical mix and her perky personality keeping darker moments light.”

(Candide, Santa Fe Opera)

 - Opera Today

"Standout Gina Perregrino, a Carmen in the making, sings Dimas' Mother and Rivera's ex-wife Lupe Marín with fervor."

(Frida, The Atlanta Opera)
- ArtsATL

"[Perregrino's] interpretation of Rivera's jealous and drunken ex, Lupe Marín is comical, strong, and wonderfully uncomfortable, while her small scene as the grieving mother of Dima is sung with a tender and silky mezzo-soprano."

(Frida, The Atlanta Opera)
- Daniel Weisman for Schmopera

"Rounding out the cast as Edka was Gina Perregrino whose mezzo-soprano held strong; her dramatic integrity helped bring a sincerity to Krysia's naivety." (Out of Darkness: Two Remain)

- Schmopera

"Soprano Anya Matanovic and mezzo-soprano Gina Perregrino supplied nuanced fairy solos.

Set against a moonlit backdrop, the chorus sang with stunning precision and color, while four excellent soloists (Daniel Weeks, Matthew Worth, Matanovic and Perregrino) made refined contributions." (Tribute to Music)

 - Cincinnati Enquirer 

"Mezzo Gina Perregrino was potent as the Marquise [de Merteuil], capturing the character's sense of grandeur and determination. She was at her finest in the long declamatory letter where her character reflects on an unhappy childhood and her station in life as a widow... Her dignity in the final scene was worthy of Strauss' Marschallin." (Dangerous Liaisons)

- New York City Superconductor Blogspot

"Gina Perregrino provided a warm heart for the sometimes silly and none too credible plot. Perregrino layered Tigrane with a combination of mellow goodness and swaggering strength, and... created a relationship of real tenderness and urgency." (La Doriclea)

- Opera News

 

“As Doriclea’s royal husband Tigrane, Gina Perregrino showed an attractive mezzo, performing with complete conviction.” (La Doriclea)
