REVIEWS:

Mabel, Pirates of Penzance at Eugene Opera

 "Angela Theis was marvelous in the coloratura role of Mabel, Frederic’s beloved. The key to spoofing opera is being able to sing like an opera star. And in her signature aria, Theis warbled as beautifully as any Lucia di Lammermoor. Her voice is light, but her flexibility and high notes carried the day."

-The Register-Guard, Marilyn Farwell, December 2012

Beth, Little Women at Utah Opera:

“Theis’ dying scene in Act II was heart wrenching and poignant without a hint of sentimentality.”

-Edward Reichel (formerly of Desert News), March 2011

“Sopranos Angela Theis and Donna Smith give musically and dramatically solid performances as Beth and Amy, respectively.”

-The Salt Lake Tribune, Catherine Reese Newton, March 2011

Zerlina, Don Giovanni at New England Conservatory:

“Angela Theis was a bright, bold, and beguilingly sung Zerlina.”

“…Still, there were moments when the student talent and initiative trumped all obstacles. Minimal staging finally let the chemistry between Zerlina and Masetto shine through during Theis’s touching rendition of “Vedrai, carino.’’

-The Boston Globe, Matthew Guerrieri, March 2010

“Angela Theis was well suited to the role of Zerlina. Her fetching voice and fluid coloratura sparkled in the final section of “Batti, batti” and provided soothing balm in “Vedrai carino.” Her saucy, fun-loving characterization led quite naturally to Masetto’s jealousy, but it was balanced by her touching devotion to him in the end.”

-The Boston Musical Intelligencer, Geoffrey Wieting, March 2010

Marguerite, Faust 1859 at Opera Notre Dame:

"Theis shines throughout, and her Marguerite steals the show from Faust perhaps even more than Mephistopheles does. Theis not only possesses a voice which conveys power and vulnerability with great effect, she is also the strongest actor onstage."

-South Bend Tribune, Jack Walton, April 2008
