“As La Périchole herself, Caitlin McKechney was marvelous, a lush mezzo with low notes like pools of water and just the right mix of long-suffering and flirty. [...] her drunk scene was a delightful blend of tipsy slurs, physical comedy and fine singing, and her “Why are men so stupid?” aria brought down the house.”
The News Tribune
"As the lesbian Inez who has aided in the murder of her cousin’s husband, the coolly sexy Caitlin McKechney is clearly the show’s star. Her alluring mezzo-soprano timbre, incisive verbal articulation, expressive eyes and catlike movements rivet attention." - South Florida Classical Review
"Perhaps the evening’s most touching moment was McKechney’s performance of Dinah’s monologue at the analyst’s office as she longs for “a quiet place.” This beautiful solo is a haunting confession of sadness in the great American tradition of operatic composers such as Gian Carlo Menotti and Douglas Moore. The smoky depth of McKechney’s lower register registered Dinah’s loneliness. By contrast her description of the movie “Island Magic” was a musical comedy turn, done with the showstopping high style of a Mary Martin." - Lawrence Budman, South Florida Classical Review
