FEATURED REVIEWS

"Her sister Clorinde, the excellent Hannah Friesen, sings a party-pleasing boléro that showcased the soprano's bright, clear sound and alluring stage presence."

    - Opera News

"Both sopranos tossed off the virtuoso writing in their comic duets, the highlights of the performance, with precision and verve."

    - Opera News

(Friesen as Clorinde in Manhattan School of Music's production of Nicolo Isuard's Cendrillon)

"Hannah Friesen’s sweet sound was perfect for

“Sul fil d’un soffio etesio” from Verdi’s Falstaff."
