An Evening with Patricia Racette

Sponsored by The Mithun Foundation, in memory of Doris B. Mithun

 

  • “This rightly famed and beloved American soprano [Patricia Racette] made such a profound, technically masterful and emotionally invested impact when she took the stage…her appearance here made for an auspicious commencement of OSB’s season.”
    – Josef Woodard / SB News-Press
  • “Opera Santa Barbara definitely hit a high note and had good reason to celebrate when International soprano Patricia Racette took over the stage at the Granada. Racette sang an impressive, emotional and expressive mix of beloved opera works… Icing on a most wonderful musical cake to be sure…”
    – Richard Mineards / Montecito Journal
  • “Famed soprano Patricia Racette, joined by the delightful and glamorous mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, arrived onstage to thunderous applause. She provided dramatic interpretations that captured the stirring moments beautifully… her voice and acting carried a piercing emotional resonance.”
    – Robert F. Adams / CASA Magazine
