Appearing as Giunia, soprano Meghan Lindsay voices a strong, resolute heroine depicted in vivid primary colours. Gifted with numerous arias, her clear, translucent top speaks of unbending purity and goodness.

Meghan Lindsay was powerful and effective as Giunia, the object of both Silla’s lust and Cecilio’s love.

As Belinda, Dido's faithful handmaiden, soprano Meghan Lindsay brings her characteristic twinkly voice to the spritely melisma Purcell set out of her. She was so appealing in this role. There was a youthful vitality in her demeanour and voice that made Belinda one of the most lovable characters on the stage.

Meghan Lindsay, in the role of Giunia, the tragic heroine, demonstrated herself to be a consummate performer in the role. She injected a dark, somber quality to her voice that I have not heard from her before.

Lindsay’s Alcina commanded great feminine power over her island dominion. This was until hubris touched her, and the once conceited ego panics at the thought of her purview crumbling around her.

Soprano Meghan Lindsay's portrayal of the title role had the richness needed to elevate the figure of 'Alcina' to the status given to the most tragic characters in the operatic repertoire.

Alcina is her role through and through. The comfort in her middle range coupled with crystal-clear diction added an incredible depth of colour when she went into the top end of her vocal line. Her aria at the top of Act II was breathtaking.

In Opera Atelier’s Alcina, Meghan Lindsay plays a “man-eater,” Wallis Giunta plays a woman disguised as a man and Mireille Asselin plays a fairy who falls in love with him/her.

It’s a good thing the three women are such good friends.

The cast was made up of OA veterans – all so vocally talented that it’s hard to know where to begin singing their praises. With the strong, edgy performance of soprano Meghan Lindsay as the sorceress Alcina?

Ms. Lindsay managed to inject enough bite into her timbre and enough menace to her demeanor that she was convincing in the role of the evil sorcerer.

Next to Dye, Canadian soprano Meghan Lindsay is the production's standout singer in the dual role of Sidonie and the Water Nymph. Athough minor characters in this opera, Lindsay's roles delighted the crowd with her sweet and sinuously expressive vocal delivery, made all the more meaningful through the enhanced movement of her hands — which generally resembled those of a ballerina. The fact that she is a Glimmerglass Young Artists speaks volumes about the depth of this program.

Meghan Lindsay’s Donna Anna also impressed me enormously, offering a stunningly attractive stage presence married to the kind of crisp, clear sound that gives the role its true place in the score.
