Ms. Edge has a singularly beautiful voice, with a marvelous projection into the house...she is a singer with enormous potential.
Soprano Mathilda Edge...turned in a performance that was deeply affecting. Her superior acting abilities coupled with a vocal performance that powerfully conveyed her character’s joy, longing, and tragic sorrow, was almost visceral in its impact.
The role of Butterfly had consistent luster in Mathilda Edge’s performance. As the heroine’s fate darkens in the third act, the luster also shone from Edge’s low register. She steadily represented the indomitable courage of one of Puccini’s most beloved heroines.
