Press reviews

"The outstanding leads, tenor Duke Kim and soprano Magdalena Kuzma, sang with radiant voices and endless passion and determination [...] Kuzma’s Juliet displayed intuition and self-will."

 Times Union / Glimmerglass Festival - Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet / July 2023

“Polish-American soprano Magdalena Kuźma…has a voice that instantly engages the listener: shining, free and lustrous.”

“...Kuzma's voice stood out musically and dramatically…She was on stage for only a brief scene, but it was long enough to convey star quality, and leave the audience wanting to hear more.”

Voice Magazine / Cold Mountain (Lila) - Music Academy of the West / 2019
