Philadelphia Orchestra – Tosca

Bachtrack

…Jennifer Rowley, who made a suitably volatile diva, all petty jealousies, tempestuous outbursts and coy pieties in Act 1, (the comedy of the sexes was played to good effect), and in a very different way, tempestuous and passionate in the second and third acts, as avenger, lover and victim. I particularly liked the orchestra’s relationship with her voice: the gusts…

The Metropolitan Opera – Il Trovatore

David Salazar, OperaWire

“From start to finish her Leonora was a potent and confident woman, singing passionately in her opening aria to mirror the intense love she felt for Manrico. Verdi’s vocal line ascends throughout “Tacea la notte” to mirror Leonora’s sense of hope and aspiration, and Rowley was right on point with this sense of elation. She retained a tempo that helped…

The Metropolitan Opera – Tosca

ZealNYC

“Up and coming American soprano Jennifer Rowley has boldly claimed for herself a new, career-changing role. Puccini’s Tosca is a monumental climb for a soprano, a career-defining mountain if, perhaps, not the toughest vocal peak. The opera greats, including Callas, have used the role to cement a career. Rowley, taking on the role at the Metropolitan Opera House for a…

Nashville Opera – Tosca

Tracy Monaghan, Schmopera

The first question always is “Well, how was the Tosca?” and ours was remarkable. Jennifer Rowley slated to sing the role again at the Met in January, was very clearly the star of the night. As Floria Tosca, Ms. Rowley gets many things so right: her profound and comprehensive interpretation gives Tosca an organic, complex richness. Ms. Rowley’s skill for…

Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, The New York Times

…the two leads poured so much heart and intelligence into their performances that I left grateful for the experience. For Ms. Rowley, this was a breakthrough. Originally an understudy for Patricia Racette, she took over when Ms. Racette pulled out in March, and on Tuesday, she sang with an even, radiant tone and effortless, chiffony top notes…at the heartbreaking ending,…

Toledo Opera – Vanessa

Wayne F. Anthony, The Blade

The all-star cast, only seven singing roles, interacts with ferocious tension that can be cut with a knife. Vanessa is sung by Ohio native Jennifer Rowley, who on Monday heads off to the New York Met. She stopped off this week to sing her inaugural Vanessa in Toledo. She exquisitely crafts Barber’s excruciatingly difficult vocal lines into emotional vehicles which…

New Orleans Opera – Tosca, Title Role

Opera News

The first prize honors of the evening rightly went to the leading lady, Jennifer Rowley, making her company debut. Possessed of a bright gleaming soprano sound, she had no difficulties with Puccini’s often treacherous vocal writing. The soprano, a gifted and sympathetic actress, allowed one to care for the character, even when in the throes of misguided jealousy in Act…

Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg – Leonora, Il Trovatore

Jochen Ruth, Der Opernfreund

Der kommt Jennifer Rowley als Leonora noch näher. ihr ausdrucksstarker sopran ist mit dunklem timbre, tollen Farben und einer wahnsinnigen Geläuftigkeit ausgestattet. Dazu pflegt sie eine wunderbare Pianokultur, verfügt über endlosen Atem und präsentiert so das berührendste und überzeugendste “d’amor sull’all rosee,” ich in den vergangenen Jahren habe hören dürfen.” (Then comes Jennifer Rowley as Leonora.

Royal Opera House, Covent Garden – Musetta, La Boheme

Richard Morrison, The Times

The other bohemians – are strong singers, characterized conventionally. No surprises there, but the best comes from Jennifer Rowley who plays Musetta as an over-the-top, bottom-wiggling, good time girl who ends her show stopper by snapping a billiard cue across her thigh. Strong girl, but she melts affectingly in the final act, which Copley stages as tenderly and unfussily as…

SemperOper Dresden – Tosca, title role

Ingris Gerk, Der Neue Merker

“Die amerikanische Sopranistin Jennifer Rowley, die 2014 die Musetta an der Met sang, gab nun ihr Semperoper-Debüt als Tosca. Sie wirkte überzeugend als zarte, empfindsame Sängerin mit weicher Stimme, die aufgrund der Ereignisse in höchste Emphase gerät und dann mit entsprechender Lautstärke und tonärmerer Stimme ihrer Verzweiflung Ausdruck verleiht. Ihre große Arie, in der sie Scarpia um Gnade anfleht, sang…
