Les Contes d’Hoffmann at Staatsoper Hamburg

“Angela Brower es una estupenda mezzo que encarnó con brillantez el doble papel de La Musa y Niclausse, el amigo y salvador muchas veces del alocado Hoffmann. Su actuación fue de gran nivel, demostrando ser además una consumada actriz. Uno de los mejores momentos musicales lo protagonizó ella con esa preciosa aria que es Vois sous l’archet frémissant, en el acto de Antonia y, cómo no, en el dúo de la Barcarola, otra vez con la complicidad maravillosa de director y orquesta. Excelente.”

Platea Magazine

“Angela Brower not only sings Hoffmann’s muse, she is her. With her soprano sun-bright, wonderfully musically intelligent mezzo, the muse is usually twice present: as a singer who accompanies her Hoffmann as a male friend Nicklausse, as a dancer who floats through the air as a personified muse.”


“Angela Brower does justice to the role of muse and friend Nicklausse. On her debut in Hamburg she is able to embody the wandering between friend and muse in all the nuances required vocally and dramatically touching.”

“In the double role of Nicklausse and Muse, the companion and guardian of the strange saint, the American mezzo-soprano Angela Brower succeeded in giving the aria “Vois sous l’archet frémissant” a high-pitched hymn to the power of the violin and at the same time the undertone of a warning that the music can also simulate feelings – this is just one example of the many refractions and ambiguities in music.”
