Brünnhilde in GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG
Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe
“The varied use of tonal coloring did not diminish with the singers. This was displayed above all by Heidi Melton as Brünnhilde, whose tremendous and overarching vocal crescendo lasted convincingly until the last note."
-Alexander Walther, Der Neue Merker
“The American soprano Heidi Melton demonstrated complete certainty and succeeded in singing the murderous part of Brünnhilde strongly until the very last note."
-Frankfurther Allgemeine Zeitung
"The vocal power pack, Heidi Melton, as Brünnhilde, not only provides a meticulous tour de force through the fields of the Hochdramatic without once losing power but she is again convincing proof that a stately figure has absolutely nothing to do with mobility and charisma."
-Joachim Lange, Die Deutsche Bühne
“Heidi Melton was a fulminant Brünnhilde. The audience can greatly enjoy not only her vocal persuasiveness, but can also be astonished at her agility and acting in this evening."
-Roberto Becker, Online Musik Magazin
"When you see how the very powerful soprano, Heidi Melton not only vigorously gets vocally stronger until the last tone, but to the very end is also incredibly agile and convincing as an actress, then one can only be amazed at how this feat can be accomplished.”
-Helmut Mauró, Süddeutsche Zeitung
"An already powerful stage performer, Heidi Melton (Brünnhilde) gave a fascinating and brilliant performance of vocal and physical mobility."
-Karl Harb, Salzburger Nachrichten
“Heidi Melton [was] vocally sovereign and with ever more sophisticated technique."
-Judith von Sternburg, Frankfurter Rundschau
"Among the excellent soloists, the crown belongs to Heidi Melton as Brünnhilde, who never loses lyrical intensity even in her most dramatic outbursts. The American singer is from the beginning to the end a strong woman, whose ability to love is maintained despite her betrayals. With her warm, deep soprano, she creates every single phrase with luminosity and still has plenty of reserve for the big showdown at the end."
-Georg Rudiger, Badisches Tagblatt
