Reviews

Rosina | Il barbiere di Siviglia | North Carolina Opera

“Mezzo-Soprano Lisa Marie Rogali’s range was not only impressive, but her ability to have tonal fullness and brilliance through the entirety of the performance was truly exceptional. Her vocal agility as the ward Rosina and her ability to play off her scene partners perpetuated a lightness throughout the show.” (Chatham Life & Style)

“Lisa Marie Rogali was a breathtaking Rosina. She sang with a grace and lyricism that was matched only by her amazing physical range from ingénue to comedienne." (Triangle Sings)

 

“With a voice smooth and stable, mezzo-soprano Lisa Marie Rogali provided a compelling Rosina both in look and sound. Rogali’s Act I aria “Una voce poco fa” was more than enough to convince the packed house that she had brought her A-game to the Triangle.”

(Cultural Voice of North Carolina)

 

StéphanoRoméo et Juliette | The Glimmerglass Festival

Live-wire mezzo Lisa Marie Rogali aced Stéphano’s tricky chanson.” (Opera News)

“Lisa Marie Rogali was a pert Stephano.” (Wall Street Journal)

“Among the singers getting just a few minutes before the public, mezzo Lisa Marie Rogali made a strong impression in the trouser role of Stéphano, Roméo’s page, delivering her third act “Que fais-tu, blanche tourterelle?” with gusto and mellifluous phrasing, while her acting was full of youthful élan.” (Bachtrack)

“Mezzo-soprano Lisa Marie Rogali makes a memorable impression in a “trousers role” take on Roméo’s pageboy Stéphano in her rendering of the exquisitely ironic Act III chanson Que fais-tu blanche tourterelle?” (La Scena Musicale)

“The large supporting cast had many fine moments, especially mezzo Lisa Marie Rogali who as a taunting Stephano carried the start of that fight scene.” (Times Union)

Soloist | Career Bridges Gala Concert

“Mezzo Soprano Lisa Rogali’s rendition of Una voce poco fa by Rossini revealed a warm, beautiful voice peppered with technically perfect coloratura.”

(Good News Planet)

“Mezzo-soprano Lisa Rogali has a true mezzo sound that was just right for Rosina's aria "Una voce poco fa" from Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia. We heard some more than usually interesting embellishments of the vocal line, all successfully negotiated.” (Voce Di Meche)

Lucy | Edward Tulane | Minnesota Opera

“Among those he encounters along the way, standouts include Lisa Marie Rogali, whose vivacious coloratura and ready-for-anything character actor instincts are used to great effect as a princess in a nightmarish bedtime story and a joyously scavenging dog.” (StarTribune)

Elena | Il cappello di paglia di Firenze | Minnesota Opera


“While it would seem there’s no time for showstoppers in a show of this pace, Lisa Marie Rogali comes pretty darn close. As the bride experiencing a confounding itinerant wedding reception, she must periodically pause to ponder her commitment to this man, and Rota gives her the opera’s most beautiful music to do it. Rogali makes each aria transporting, her pure, nuanced voice touching hearts while the rest of the opera tickles your funny bone.” (Pioneer Press)

"As the bride, made to traipse all about Paris after her hat-seeking husband, Lisa Marie Rogali sings sweetly, her soprano rising to convey her love for Fadinard. She does a fine job expressing her conflicted emotions between romantic love and the ordeal of her run-amok wedding day." (Talkin’ Broadway)

“Lisa Marie Rogali (as Elena)’s beautifully rendered duet “Trema nell’estasi d’amor” / “Oh si…è gioia” with Steson/Fadinard was one of the highlights of the opera.” (Twin Cities Arts Reader)

“The beautiful bride Elena, Lisa Marie Rogali, centers this comedy with a young woman who has little control on her wedding day, dashed between her domineering father and nowhere to be found groom. Rogali draws the attention to her innocence and true love when she sings together with Stenson's Fardinard in ebullient affection.” (Broadway World)

Soloist | OTSL Center Stage Concert

"Lisa Marie Rogali and Mr. Cairns got the delicate bloom of "Suzel buon di" (from Mascagni's "L'Amico Fritz") just right." (KDHX)

Lisette | La Rondine | Minnesota Opera

“The standout among the other cast members was Lisa Marie Rogali, who was a fizzy, thoroughly charming Lisette from the opening party scene to her chastened return to Magda's household at the end. Her Act I rouser, "Un momento, scusi ecco," is a tour de force of diction, precision and pizzazz. (Opera News)

“Lisa Marie Rogali’s mischievous Lisette sparkled with spontaneity and was sung vibrantly. Beside her the Prunier of Christian Sanders cut a raffish figure, and their interplay lit the stage in its three-dimensionality.” (StarTribune)

“Newcomer and very recent graduate of University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory Lisa Marie Rogali as Lisette was enchanting. Her demeanor bold and sassy, she got the most laughs of the night. Prunier was sung by Christian Sanders. The two had great chemistry and added some sparks to the night.” (Schmopera)

“Lisa Marie Rogali is delightful as Lisette, her soprano lilting as she defies the rules of decorum, and her spirited presence captures the audience whenever she is on stage.” (Talkin’ Broadway)

Fatmé | Zémire et Azor | Opera Saratoga

“Two members of the Opera Saratoga Young Artist Program, Lisa Rogali and Katherine Maysek, played, respectively, Sanders’ two other daughters, the vain and flighty Fatme and Lisbe. Both performers offered pert, preening delight and evinced clean mastery of the sprightly yet demanding vocal lines with which Grétry’s score tasks them.” (La Scena Musicale)
