Barber of Seville, Merola, San Francisco

Suzanne Rigden played the coloratura part of Rosina in Bizet's Barber of Seville. Reviewers pointed out her "remarkable gift for stratospheric coloratura," "dizzying ability to sing high notes," "comic timing," and "perfect high F." ​ 

 

"She larded her showpiece, "Una voce poco fa," with a wealth of impeccable passagework that started high and then just kept going higher, with pointed, note-perfect placement."
