Sara Beth Pearson Press and Media


“Sara Beth Pearson projected the goodness and naiveté of José’s country sweetheart Micaëla. Her bright soprano blended smoothly with Alongi in the Act I duet and Micaëla’s Act III aria emerged as one long, spun lyrical reverie.”  

~Lawrence Budmen, South Florida Classical Review  

“Sara Beth Pearson sang Lauretta’s celebrated supplication strongly”  

~Fred Kohn, Opera News  

“As Nedda, Pearson has the uncanny ability to use her voice to draw the audience into her dual world of her character’s deceit and self-pity”  

~ Maria Kuhns, DC Metro Theater Arts  

“Sara [Pearson]’s Nedda was impressive. Her voice revealed considerable promise and she fleshed out the character effectively.”  

~Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun  

“[Pearson], a remarkable humorist in her own right, possessed a sense of comedic timing and display that immediately enamored her to the audience. An adorable gossip with an infectiously mischievous mega-watt smile and a sense of dramatic flair to match … [Pearson]’s Lucy traipses the fine line of physical comedy, at once engaging and funny.”  

~Olga Privman,  

“Sara [Pearson] delivered the offstage prayer of the Priestess in a warm, penetrating tone.”  

~Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun  

“…Sara [Pearson], whose Demeter moves very naturally… chewed the scenery in a satisfying way that suited her character. Her voice was impressive as well, and I will look for her in future shows.”  

~Suzyn Smith Webb, Washington Citypaper  

“…[Pearson] [as Josephine] makes a perfect embodiment of maidenly melancholia…”  

~Jack Purdy, Baltimore Citypaper
