The two real heroes of the week were conductor Richard Farnes and Kelly Cae Hogan who sang Brunnhilde for the entire cycle. In her highly commited performances she proved a revelation, her voice being sumptuous and full, her vibrant tones offsetting an almost metallic edge to her sound.

“Highlight was North American soprano Kelly Cae Hogan who, with her beloved “Vissi d’arte” and other beautiful and difficult music, carried the evening. Act II is memorable, and Hogan handles a gamut of emotions. This is a role that few sopranos can do and she carried it off. It was, of course, Tosca’s opera, and Hogan handled it with confidence, aplomb and beautiful singing. ” Puerto Rico Daily Sun

Kelly_Tosca-1“Kelly Cae Hogan exhibited a clear, dark timbre in the middle and lower registers that rose with focused intensity to a rich, full high C. Hogan is a deeply resourceful artist who used her dramatic vocal gifts wisely, allowing the phrases to rise and fall in beautiful, expressive arches.” The News, Port St. Lucie
