~~Michelle Trainor has been acclaimed by both Opera News and The Boston Globe for her portrayal of Hagar in Schubert’s Lament. The Musical Intelligencer has called her performance of Hagar’s Lament “spell-binding and intense” and the Harvard Art Review hailed her for her “vocal virtuosity and superb acting” in the role of Floria Tosca.

Had a wonderful night singing for Boston Lyric Opera's Orfeo Society. Singing with old friends and meeting a new one helped make this event a joy! Congratulations to BLO on the end of a wonderful season!!!

Don't be misled by the title - BLO asked me to write an article during 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."

“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.”
