Review: Pamina The Magic Flute
The Metropolitan Opera / December 2021

“Tenor Matthew Polenzani was the picture of infatuation in Tamino’s aria to Pamina’s portrait, and soprano Hera Hyesang Park stopped the show with the pathos of Pamina’s aria d’affetto after being “spurned” by Tamino (who had taken a vow of silence). 

 

Apart from Lewek’s dazzling Queen, the vocal standout of the evening was Park as a most sympathetic Pamina, her tender phrases rising to fill the house without apparent effort."

David Wright, New York Classical Review, December 2021

"Pamina, with whom Tamino falls in love, was sung beautifully by the plush-voiced soprano Hera Hyesang Park."

Anthony Tomassini, New York Times, December 2021
