 ..."exhibited both vocal virtuosity and superb acting"...

Opera News, February 2015:  "Soprano Michelle Trainor gave one of the most thorough and satisfying performances of the evening as Isolt's loyal servant Brangain.   Trainor, an alumna of the company's Emerging Artist Program, has clearly emerged.  Musically, her voice is richer and more expressive than ever, and she in particular embodied the simultaneous passion and restraint of Martin's musical approach to the legend."

June, 2015


"The Sister Angelica of Michelle Trainor was the standout. She projected a compelling vocal glamour at every level of delivery and traced the characters disintegration with complete engagement and believability. This is what Italian opera is about. The last ten minutes of the production featuring Angelica’s interaction with the evil stepmother/princess of an extremely haughty and colorful contralto Jessica Johnson produced an overwhelming dramatic effect and run on Kleenex."

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."

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