Camille debuts a “colorful and unwaveringly powerful” Anna Bolena
Camille’s role debut in the bel canto tour de force is hailed by The Houston Chronicle and the Houston Press.
- The Houston Chronicle writes, “Camille Zamora digs deep into Anna Bolena with the richness of her fabulously colorful and unwaveringly powerful soprano instrument, always emoting with perfect diction, placement, tone, and volume. The nuances and brilliant choices Ms. Zamora makes along Anne Boleyn’s path of painful epiphanies are profoundly astounding… Ms. Zamora is a consummate actress, whose ability to get completely inside of Anne Boleyn’s character and show us all of her subtleties and intricacies is phenomenal and inspiring. Anne’s mad scene is a stunning work of genius by Ms. Zamora, driven passionately with the ebbs and flows of the emotions of a woman who has lost her crown and whose life has been completely destroyed. As long as I live, I shall never forget the many times I wiped tears from my eyes as I experienced Ms. Zamora’s brilliant performance as Anna Bolena.” (To read the full review, please click here)
- The Houston Press writes, “As wrongly accused Anna, soprano Camille Zamora tore up the intimate space with her drama-filled voice and subtle acting. One could easily be tempted to go overboard in this role, but Donizetti wisely gives everyone else a fair share of the spotlight, venting much of the pressure. Zamora knows when to kick back and when to let go, as when she must shuffle her emotions between her former lover, Lord Percy (tenor Lázaro Calderón), who has shown up unexpectedly at court, and her misplaced attentions toward Enrico (bass Erik Kroncke), with whom she has never fallen in love.” (To read the full review, please click here)
