In the Wings: The Best Singer in the World


Don't be misled by the title - BLO asked me to write an article du​ring our production of The Inspector and I recall the words of my grandmother who I think of every day...

11/5/14 - The BLO recording of Clemency is now available and the reviews are in:

"Soprano Michelle Trainor as Hagar, joined by the piano of Brett Hodgdon, in this most appropriate of Schubert songs, with Trainor in fine voice, full of passion and emotion, with beautifully clear diction and moving from fierce emotion to a sudden lighter Schubertian vein with consummate ease."

​                                     ~The Classical Reviewer

October 14, 2014 is the release date of the Clemency Recording. Click here for purchase details.


Boston Lyric Opera's The Love Potion​ has opened and the reviews are coming in.  

"Michelle Trainor displayed a powerful, penetrating soprano as Brangain."

"Michelle Trainor’s Brangain was a force of nature.  Martin gives her much music of despair, and Trainor made the most of her brief moments of high drama."
