hannigan lulu

"Pour sa première Lulu, Barbara Hannigan entre aussitôt dans l'histoire: non seulement parce qu'elle danse sur les pointes et habite son rôle par tous les pores de la peau, mais parce qu'elle le chante avec une aisance, une virtuosité et des couleurs qu'on ne connaît à aucune autre aujourd'hui. Cette femme doit venir d'une autre planète."
Christian Merlin, Le Figaro, October 23, 2012

PORTRAIT
'Her Hands Lead, Her Voice Follows'
New York Times, August 2014

"Barbara Hannigan, a superb and versatile Canadian soprano, has found another use for her hands and arms. At 43, she is developing a second career, as a conductor, and she seems to be stealing shows around Europe with some regularity, as she did here on Saturday in a late-night concert with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra at the KKL Concert Hall as part of the Lucerne Festival."

REVIEW
'For a Festival, Change Comes, Invited or Not'
New York Times, August 2014


INTERVIEW
Unsuk Chin Le Silence des Sirènes



Financial Times:
"
Hannigan’s theatrical energy, her effortless heights and unearthly precision all become part of a seductive whole; and then there is a sense of childlike joy and wonder in Chin’s sonic explorations. Le Silence des Sirènes is a great piece."

PRAISE FOR 'DIE SOLDATEN'

Die Welt:
"But they are all outshone by Barbara Hannigan as Marie: a suffering Madonna of devotion, with glistening young girls tones and melting legato. Twelve-tone-Belcanto is her bewitching Art."


Süddeutsche Zeitung:
"Hannigan is always brought in when it comes to making the trickiest modern music sound so natural and attractive that everyone thinks in the auditorium: I can do that. Her light and lyrical voice seem to set no limits in that realm. But Hannigan also has a maelstrom of stage presence, and she is a gorgeous actress who effortlessly creates the animated and puppet-like contortions that the director Andreas Kriegenburg demanded on this memorable evening. With all this, she is a very, very great stroke of luck in the opera business."
