Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia - Opera Theater of Connecticut

"But the star of the production was Meredith Ziegler as Rosina. [Ziegler has] a rich, warmness of sound..."

"Ziegler has golden instincts for comedy. She has a huge repertory of gestures and expressions and had the ability to direct attention within the ensemble in highly effective ways. Ziegler is the Lucille Ball of comic opera."

Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia - Opera Company of Middlebury

"Mezzo-soprano Meredith Ziegler’s Rosina, rather than the usual innocent, is a lusty young woman who knows exactly what she wants. Ziegler sang with a clean line… managing Rossini’s florid lines beautifully"

Dorabella in Cosi fan tutte - Granite State Opera

"The tall thin mezzo soprano Meredith Ziegler displayed a very beautiful voice and acted the role of the flighty Dorabella with gusto.  She was very effective in her duets with [Theresa] Cincione [Fiordiligi]."

 Mercedes in Carmen - Connecticut Opera

"... Mezzo soprano Meredith Ziegler in the role of Carmen's gypsy friend ... Mercedes ... gave a solid performance, displaying good vocal control and tone and solid stage presence, with ... Ms. Ziegler showing a playful side that came across beautifully for the part.  These are usually two underrated roles in this opera [Frasquita and Mercedes, but when done well, as they were last night, can make the stage burn up, as they did when they were on it."
