"What makes Tulsa Opera’s production of Madama Butterfly, which opened Friday at the Tulsa PAC, truly take flight is the extraordinary performance of Maria Natale in the title role." Tulsa World
And then there’s Tosca. Maria Natale is as perfect as you can get. Her voice has so many gears: the dramatic soprano who scream-sings at Scarpia’s attacks, the pure lyric who recalls better days in Tosca’s tender Act 3 remembrances, and especially the dramatic lyric who agonizes over her fate in “Vissi d’arte,” delivering top notes so rich and full you want them to go on forever.
