Christine Capsuto


"Singing the role of Gilda is soprano Christine Capsuto, whose rich, buttery voice spans the coloratura, lyric and spinto ranges. She expresses her character's naive youthful innocence and heartfelt fragility, but also captures Gilda's grit and determination." — Mountain View Voice

"I soon fell under the spell of her passionate Italian-ness in their larger-than-life ways. Christine Capsuto has the great fortune to play Franca, Fabrizio’s fiery sister-in-law, and is easily one of the best supporting actresses in a musical since Anita in West Side Story. She sings and acts it to sizzling perfection...she has great chemistry, impeccable comedic timing, and would kill tigers for the others.” — StageScene LA

"In one theatrical tour de force, in fact, the lap-sitting was literal. "Quando me'n vo'," Musetta's opening aria about how men find her sexually irresistible wherever she goes, was the vehicle for an extravagant entrance by soprano Christine Capsuto - spilling out of a slinky red dress, planting lipstick kisses on the bald pates of audience members, and reinforcing her seductive allure with vibrant singing and exuberant comic timing." — SF Gate
