OPERA WIRE: "EMMANUEL VILLAUME LEADS AN IMPRESSIVE CAST IN RIMSKY-KORSAKOV’S MASTERPIECE"
"Soprano Kasia Borowiec, another Apprentice, went unseen during the performance, yet appeared in an elegant gold sequined gown for the curtain call. Though much of the Cockerel’s music is stylized “cawing,” Borowiec made an impression with her strikingly rich sound, which cut easily through the back of the house."

"Soprano Kasia Borowiec, from Summit, N.J., picked three songs by Rachmaninov, all sung in Russian: “It is Beautiful Here,” “Daisies” and “Spring Waters.” Borowiec has a pure silky sound with a lovely top. She got passion into the “Spring Waters,” and apparently her Russian diction was perfection, a neighbor told me. Russian can be difficult to sing with all its consonants.

"Soprano Kasia Borowiec was equally impressive as Giulietta. She has a bright soprano with just the right amount of vibrato and her embellishments were accurate. She too created a winsome character that we could care about. She was especially moving as she weighed her familial duty against her love for Romeo who wanted to elope with her."-Meche Kroop (5.5.2014)
