Meghan McCall as Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor

Mark J. Estren, Tuesday, May 1, 2007; The Washington Post
“The mad scene in Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor” is justly famous — and often parodied, as in Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Ruddigore.” And it is extremely unfair to rest the weight of this coloratura showpiece on the slender shoulders of a young and developing soprano. But Bel Cantanti opera company has done just that, casting Meghan McCall as Lucia; it is to McCall’s tremendous credit that she rises so far. Literally rises: The high E-flats in the mad scene are stratospheric…Her Act 1 “Regnava nel Silenzio” was passionate… this opera belongs to Lucia — and on Sunday, it belonged to McCall.”
