MusicWeb International Review of "Legata" CD album

“The first thing that struck me when I started listening was the pure sound of her voice... 

a real tour de force of impassioned singing, the voice flowing out of the loudspeakers like an unstoppable lava stream of healthy natural power. Overwhelming! 

...an inviting calling card to a fascinating singer, from whom I expect to hear more. Why not an opera recital next time? Her voice and looks seem to indicate that she should be a riveting Carmen – a role she has done on stage to great acclaim.”

"La Ciociara" wins best production of the year on OperaWire

"...Yet, the best of the year was undoubtedly Wexford Festival Opera’s production of Marco Tutino’s “La Ciociara.” Anyone who thinks opera is an art form stuck in the past should see it. It is full of rich, engaging melodies, possesses a captivating narrative, and can be emotionally overwhelming; it cannot fail to delight and impress anybody who likes opera. The stage director, Rosetta Cucchi, and conductor, Francesco Cilluffo, did a magnificent job of bringing it alive, and the cast, led by mezzo-soprano Na’ama Goldman, was truly excellent.

WEXFORD FESTIVAL OPERA

Bachtrack

"Goldman was nothing short of magnificent as Cesira. A consummate actress, she conveyed the sorrow and heartbreak that she suffers throughout the opera in a way that was both utterly believable and natural."

Operawire

"...It is a role requiring substantial emotional and vocal stamina. It fell to mezzo-soprano Na’ama Goldman to essay the role, and it was a role in which she excelled.

Her identification with Cesira was total; she lived the part. The emotional pain, the trauma and the occasional moments of happiness and joy were all expertly realized. Her performance was a tour de force. Her bodily movements, facial expressions and vocal interpretation were perfectly synchronized. The pain she was able to bring to her singing was stunning. Wrapping the vocal line in a tumult of emotions, she brilliantly gave voice to her anger, pain and fears. She was also feisty and combative... She also expressed Cesira’s more sensitive side, in which her voice softened and bloomed in her tender moments... It was a compelling performance!

Opera Today

"The cast could not have been bettered. The central role of Cesira is a Big Sing, and Na’ama Goldman more than proved up to the task. Her substantial mezzo had power and beauty from bottom to top, and despite being onstage through almost all of the running time, her musicianship and stamina never flagged. In addition to the glorious searing dramatic high passages, Ms. Goldman also brought nuance and subtlety to more lyrical and playful utterances...

From first to last there was total commitment to not only the vocal execution of this demanding role, but also to the unending embodiment of the character’s torturous journey.
A true star turn, indeed."

L’Ape musicale

"Na'ama Goldman è una Cesira di grandissima intensità, affilata nell'articolazione, insieme spossata e aggressiva, immediatamente riconoscibile nel colore che aderisce come un guanto alla parola e alla situazione."
