“And while Elizabeth de Trejo has had several critically acclaimed starring roles at Opera Tampa
and other venues around the country in recent years, this was to be her first Norma. Brava!
Norma’s first major aria — an invocation to the goddess of the moon — was a moment of great
delicacy. As the music unfolded, new dimensions of de Trejo’s voice kept revealing themselves
until, at the climax on a final high G, it came into full bloom. Throughout the opera, as Norma
moves through moods of patience, betrayal, anguish and resolve, there were many such
moments that could make a listener swoon. “
