“As Léontine, the widowed aristocrat whose hapless marriage left her leery of love, soprano Chanáe Curtis sang with bright, centered tone and agile technique, especially in her second act aria, “Du tendre amour.”

L'AMANT ANONYME
“Chanáe Curtis, a soprano originally hailing from Washington, D.C. sang Léontine with a noble and lyrical tone, backed up with gleaming high notes in her first aria in Act I. She added agility to the display in running passages for her Act II aria, sung as she adjusted her hair and makeup, waiting for the big reveal of the letter writer. Her French pronunciation, both spoken and sung, was clear and fluent.”
-CHARLES T. DOWNEY, WASHINGTON CLASSICAL REVIEW
