“Kathryn Lewek, who made her company debut as the Queen in 2013, did a remarkable job in all aspects of her fearsome music. The tone, consistently rounded and attractive, has sufficient thrust not only for the fireworks—including five stellar high Fs—but for the weightier “Zum Leiden”; the musical challenges, triplets and all, were aced with seeming ease. Lewek’s Act II aria won the sustained cheers that her first had also merited.”
