"THE DIVA SHOW"
August, 14th 2021
Singers from Opera on Tap New Hampshire will present "The Diva Show", program that will feature an all-female ensemble singing some of opera's biggest female roles, and showcasing what it truly means to be a "diva".
Rosalinda, Die Fledermaus
"Fahning was perfectly able to capture every aspect and emotion of Rosalinda both with her beautiful singing and her speaking. Further for the character's entire journey, we remained on her side even as Rosalinda displayed some of her flaws." The Theatre Times
Laurentia, The Beautiful Bridegroom
"Singing throughout the piece was exceptional... Kristin Fahning and Laura Intravia played off of one another well as her two daughters, both in their purposefully stilted-looked choreography and their vocal shine" The Theatre Times
Kitty Hart, Dead Man Walking
"As the four parents of the murdered teenagers, Robert Turnage, Samantha Lax, Kristin Fahning, and Tyler Koch expressed grief for their children and anger at Sister Helen... yet never descended into stock characters." South Florida Classical Review
"Kristin Fahning is a clear, well-produced soprano who had the dramatic sense to avoid the self-pity with which some sopranos invest in Don José's jilted girlfriend." San Diego Story
