Maureen McKay


— Soprano

"Vocally the star of the show was Maureen McKay playing the demure Pamina the daughter of the Queen of the Night. Clothed in black and white to look ordinary McKay was highly assured, with a lovely creamy tone and impeccable diction, delivering just the right amount of expressive yearning for Tamino's affections."
Michael Cookson, Seen and Heard International, September 24, 2014

"Pamina, Maureen McKay combined a charming stage presence with a soprano voice of sweet clarity and sincerity. McKay is the kind of opera singer who gives opera a good name these days - her acting is equal to her musical artistry."
Jeffrey Walker, BroadwayWorld.com, May 4, 2014

"Likewise enchanting was the performance by soprano Maureen McKay in the symphony's final movement, a vision of heaven as perceived by a youth. More than just a bright, pretty voice, McKay also brought to her performance a keen sense of dramatic expression, singing as if she herself were enjoying the bliss of an afterlife filled with eating and dancing. Ultimately, thanks to Luisi and McKay, the night closed with an opening."
Zachary Lewis, The Plain Dealer, September 20, 2013
