“And the rest of the cast, many of them making company debuts, helped fill in the emotional palette, starting with the warm and lovely Suzuki of Kristen Choi (more of her, please).” – Washington Post on Washington National Opera’s production of Madame Butterfly

“And Choi, a Glimmerglass Young Artist, was clearly a powerhouse in the making, her ample tone suggesting a future in the great mezzo roles of Verdi. In the opening scene, her ritualistic greeting to the bored Pinkerton, with a hint of umbrage creeping into her tone, proved the most theatrically potent moment of the evening.” – Opera News on Glimmerglass Festival’s production of Madame Butterfly

“”Something Wonderful,” the pleading but wise ballad sung here by Kristen Choi (as Lady Thiang) is exceptionally rich and moving.” – The Chicago Tribune, Marriott Theatre’s The King and I
