Dido and Aeneas

Pacific MusicWorks

"Julia Benzinger's wonderfully spiteful and imaginatively phrased Sorceress stole the show whenever she took the spotlight."

-Opera Now

""Mezzo Julia Benzinger was a thoroughly menacing sorceress"

-The SunBreak

 

Götterdämmerung

Miami Music Festival

"Julia Benzinger’s warmth of timbre, silvery top register, and declamation were riveting."

-South Florida Classical Review

"La primera Norna a cargo de Julia Benzinger mostró carismática presencia y un timbre de contralto fresco, evocando la mas noble madera."

-Miami Clasica

The Rape of Lucretia

Vespertine Opera

"Julia Benzinger’s Lucretia captures the confusion, loathing, and loathing of self—her body juddering between hesitance and urgency—that occurs when a victim decides she is partly to blame and then becomes ashamed and suicidal."

-The Stranger

Pénélope

Vespertine Opera

From the second act on, the stage is dominated by Penelope, sung by mezzo soprano Julia Benzinger, and a lame, half blind and purportedly old beggar—Ulysses in disguise—sung by tenor Eric Neuville. Both are graduates of Seattle Opera Young Artists program. Faure’s lovely music requires big voices in these roles, with rich, expressive singing and excellent acting. Both did extremely well."
