Gina Galati


"Galati was a passionate, vocally impressive Gilda. Her Caro Nome, brought a clear, rich voice to its lyric passages and handled the coloratura with apparent ease. The quartet and the final scene, as she prepares to meet her death, were her best moments, as she gave a dramatic, vocally searing account of the character's tortured decision to face the murderer's knife." — South Florida Classical Review

"In the title role, soprano Gina Galati displayed a sweet, clear voice with well-placed high notes, and captured the essence of Baby. The character's devotion is rewarded with four lovely arias, and Galati made the most of them." — Post-Dispatch

"An anchor who is a strong woman: Alexandra (Gina Galati), a shrewd businesswoman with a heart as big as the prairie she tames. She tries mightily to protect young brother Emil. Her angst over him was moving to watch. Brava, Miss Galati." — The Examiner
