Press Quotes

Lydia Rose Eiche is a worthy Pamina for our prince, a mighty voice emanating from her petite frame.

Kelsey Lawler

While the whole company is asked to play many roles, character actors Simon Earle and Lydia Eiche take the cake. The duo juggles accessories and dialects, swapping role upon role and sometimes, with no break between… The result is comedic to a tee.

Kimberly Laberge

As the bride Milica, Lydia Rose Eiche was not only the center of attention for the entire opera, she was also the only one to have an extended solo during the ‘Farewell’ section, which she handled with aplomb. Her clear, rich voice expressed the melancholy and insecurity of a woman who was about to leave all she has known to start a new life.

Lydia Rose Eiche is excellent in a nearly dialogue-free role as Hedwig’s mistreated husband and backup singer Yitzhak, a performer who, like Hedwig, is boxed in from being her true self.

Lydia Eiche’s Zerlina was particularly impressive: pinpoint security and handsome tone, perfectly apt in her two arias.

Lydia Rose Eiche shines

Peggy Sue Dunigan

No one is more abused than Yitzhak, who is played here by a very aggressive and emotionally combustible Lydia Rose Eiche.… The character isn’t given much room to relay all of this to the audience, but Eiche does a brilliant job of bringing it across.

Lydia Rose Eiche wraps her gorgeously full soprano around a lot of emotion

Gwen Rice

Ms. Eiche is a marvelous talent with a voice that can capture both Whitney Houston and Dolly Parton in the same evening. She’s a good actor and stands out in both her solo and harmony work with Hedwig.
