When Gerhilde (Die Walk├╝re) started to sing, I turned to the friend next to me and said, "Who's that?" She was the soprano Kelly Cae Hogan, making her Met debut. We must hear more of her.

More good news on SALOME in Virginia!

As Salome in Salome

Hogan, a soprano, captured the litheness, sensuality and curiosity of a spoiled teen – and the vocal beauty and musicianship to cajole, to storm, to soar mightily over the large orchestra. She has a magnificent voice. Virginian-Pilot (B.J. Atkinson – February 2, 2015)Salome with cloche

Kelly Cae Hogan’s effortlessly soaring soprano (and her) take on perhaps the craziest princess in opera has a way of reverberating in the mind long after you’ve left the theater. Richmond Times-Dispatch (Roy Proctor – February 7, 2015)
