Bastien und Bastienne

Christine Taylor Price (Bastienne) is a fine soprano with a light lyric sound with a fast beat, but well suited to many Mozart roles;

The Magic Flute

Pleasingly, Christine Taylor Price was much feistier physically and vocally than the usual Pamina; she stood her ground against male oppression. Her soprano may eventually suit Wagner and Strauss; if so, this was a good exercise.

The voices were excellent across the board, with particular kudos to Christine Taylor Price’s gutsy Pamina…

La finta giardiniera

Serpetta, portrayed by gifted soprano Christine Taylor Price… dazzled us with [her] coloratura.

The singer who came nearest to matching Banješevic´’s level of achievement was Christine Taylor Price as the servant Serpetta, vivaciously deploying her small but tangy soprano.

The Turn of the Screw

The performers were in tune with their characters. Especially expressive [was] Price, who sang in tones stricken and resolute.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

Soprano Christine Taylor Price shone as an intelligent, commanding Alice Ford, unleashing roulades of accusatory coloratura with crystalline purity, fierce feminine pride, and a nuanced inner life.

Alice Ford and Meg Page are the emotional center of his little comedy. Soprano Christine Taylor Price…showed a fearless attitude toward the opera’s high-flying, heavily ornamented arias, which use some of the same fioratura style that adorned Italian buffo comedies. Ms. Price was particularly effective as Alice, giving her a gutsy, no-nonsense demeanor when confronting the amorous Falstaff or her jealous, foolish husband Fluth.

Ms. Price (whom we are thinking of as Ms. Pipes) nearly stole the show practicing her seductive moves on a factory worker whose facial expressions in response were classic. Her contentious duet with Mr. Zapiór was another highlight.

Soprano Christine Taylor Price has a pure crystalline sound that soars into the stratosphere.  We have enjoyed reviewing her work on prior occasions but don’t recall hearing her sing Strauss; her instrument is just perfectly Taylor-ed (pardon the pun) for it… To hear her spin out a pianissimo line is to experience pure auditory joy… We loved the gentle “Traum durch die Dammerung” in which her vocal colors matched the text “weiches samteness Band”–soft velvet ribbon indeed!
