“Andrea Ludwig’s two performances, one right after the other, in Schafer’s Tantrika and Amente-Nufe, were a tremendous tour de force of powerful vocalization, beautiful singing, and expressive acting.”
Robert Harris – Globe and Mail
“Mezzo-soprano Andrea Ludwig cast as alto soloist [in Against the Grain’s MESSIAH, 2015] delivers an exceptionally powerful performance of great beauty. Shining and radiant in her mid to top range, tender and touching in her lower reach, the versatile opera and concert collaborator adds captivating sparkle to Handel’s engaging tonal landscape. Coloratura in the composer’s trippingly cheerful O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion is charmingly rendered.”
Ian Ritchie – www.operagoto.com
“Andrea Ludwig’s performance of Lise Meitner was very strong. Her voice was clear with character and resolve.”
Michael Vincent – Musical Toronto
“a fine showcase for Andrea Ludwig’s lovely voice that combines darkness of hue with clarity of tone.”
Christopher Hoile – Stage Door
“Ms. Ludwig was fully capable of the finest harmonic interaction, musicality, timbral clarity and communication with her audience.”
Stephan Bonfield – Calgary Herald
“Andrea Ludwig is a poignant Dido. Her lament at the end was mesmerizing.”
