Cherubino in The Marriage of Figaro

Margaret Thompson brilliantly and artistically created the pants role of Cherubino. She showed the "love sick" page in a comical and playfully, delightful light. "Voi, che sapete'' was sung as if served on a silver platter.

The casting of Margaret Thompson as Cherubino was absolutely ideal: the best singing of the evening. She sang effortless, with radiance, lyric sparkle and dynamic presence.                                                                PFORZHEIM KURIER

Margaret Thompson's light, attractive, supple mezzo voice with richly produced timbre not only made Cherubino the central figure; with this interpretation she executed a mixture of the beginnings of erotic, self importance and artful, comedy like clumsiness who found all the women appealing.       PFORZHEIM ZEITUNG
