A Little Night Music – Houston Grand Opera

“Alicia Gianni fully inhabits the earthy, saucy serving girl Petra; she scores a knockout with her dynamic rendition of her provocative “The Miller’s Son,” speculating on varied marital prospects for her future while unabashedly celebrating the pursuit of “everything passing by” in the interim.” Houston Chronicle- Everett Evans

A Little Night Music-- Houston Grand Opera

“Subsequently, with her thrilling rendition of “The Miller’s Son,” Alicia Gianni as Petra stole the highpoint of the second act from Futral. It’s a weird song celebrating lustiness, experience, and adventure, and Gianni finished her emphatic phrases with long, non-vibrato belting. She was absolutely thrilling in every respect.” Culture Map – Theodore Bale

A Little Night Music- Houston Grand Opera

“Gianni’s earthy maid Petra smolders with smutty delight…” Houston Press-D.L. Groover

Così fan tutte- Wolf Trap Opera

“Alicia Gianni, as the servant Despina…..certainly got into the spirit of things with panache. She also brought a strong, warm, colorful soprano to the assignment.”
The Baltimore Sun- Tim Smith

Die Zauberflöte- Houston Grand Opera

“Soprano Alicia Gianni was aurally a wonderful evil hag who turns into a lively Papagena.”
Houston Chronicle – Charles Ward

A Little Night Music (Christmas Recital)

“Last night, I had tears in my eyes when Alicia Gianni sang O Holy Night.”
Seattle Post Intelligencer -Sue Frause

Così fan tutte – Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra

“Vocally, it was a dream cast. Soprano Alicia Gianni displayed a remarkable voice in the taxing role of Fiordiligi, warm and strong at both ends of its over two-octave range, with a flexible coloratura…….the duet “Fra gli amplessi” (where Fiordiligi finally succumbs) was the single most beautiful moment in the opera.”
Cincinnati Post- Mary Ellen Hutton

“The six singers were well matched – vocally and in acting ability – which made Mozart’s superb ensembles a joy to hear. As Fiordiligi, Alicia Gianni was a standout. She delivered “Come scoglio” with convincing defiance. Her Act II aria “Per pieta” traversed a range of emotions with impressive coloratura.”
The Cincinnati Enquirer 

Studio Showcase – Florida Grand Opera
Janelle Gelfand

“Alicia Gianni provided the highlight with the final scene from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin…….Gianni’s pure soprano rendered the conflicted emotions of Onegin and Tatiana’s doomed love affecting and powerfully real in a beautifully sung reading. Gianni was equally impressive as half of another illicit couple with the scene between Nedda and Silvio in Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci. Gianni’s ease of production and natural acting made a worthy vocal and dramatic foil…..”
South Florida Sun-Sentinel – Lawrence A. Johnson
