“Gevorgyan was spectacular in her account of the role, giving us plenty of charm and a winning way with the role’s roulades.” Oscar, ‘Un ballo in maschera’, Grange Park Opera PLANETHUGILL
“Tereza Gevorgyan’s Oscar, larking around in cowboy get-up and behaving like Cherubino’s twin brother as the governor’s page, was a delight, her singing both agile and full of charm.” BACHTRACK
“The vocal highlight was Armenian soprano Tereza Gevorgyan’s jaunty Oscar, superbly vibrant, coloratura thrown off with ease.” Oscar, Opera North BACHTRACK
“However, it was Tereza Gevorgyan who dominated the evening as the king’s all-seeing secretary Oscar, a trouser role and the only character given a measure of physical freedom in Albery’s curiously stolid staging. The Armenian soprano’s attractive timbre contrasted happily with that of Miksch in their shared scenes and her agility, both physical and vocal, aerated the prevailing stuffiness. She lifted the whole opera with a brilliantly sustained presence that was ambiguous on every level.” WHATS ON STAGE
“Consistently appealing is Tereza Gevorgyan’s Oscar — traditionally the king’s page though here his secretary — a spirited, impeccably sung characterisation that presumably hints at the historical Gustav’s rumoured sexual tastes when the prepossessing young man moves into drag for the ball scene.” FINANCIAL TIMES
“Tereza Gevorgyan works her way into the Lowry crowd’s hearts as Oscar. Gevorgyan twinkles and delights as singer and actor.” BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
“The ‘ah! It’s this one’ aria from this opera is O Mio Babbino Caro. Tereza Gevorgyan delivers it marvellously and miserably, huddled against a wall. It’s bleak and beautiful.” Lauretta, ‘Gianni Schicchi’, Opera North THE REVIEWS HUB
“Tereza Gevorgyan’s Lisette seemed like Puccini’s answer to Despina, decidedly pert but lacking a Don Alfonso. Deliciously sung and acted, this was a wonderful OHP debut. She combines stage presence well in excess of her size with complete immersion in her role.” Lisette, ‘La Rondine’, Opera Holland Park SEEN AND HEARD INTERNATIONAL
