husband's love, Soman's singing takes
Figaro well beyond comedy
- and even romance - to wistful drama." -

Madame Butterfly
POCKET OPERA, 2007
"Soprano Bharati Soman depicted the rise and fall of Butterfly with
a graceful elegance.  Her pristine voice, matched with her
passionate performance, evoked the complexity of a woman torn
between worlds. She was both butterfly and something more
powerful, undergoing a complicated transformation onstage —
from heartbreakingly demure to bravely heroic and, finally, to
nothing short of tragic." -
Napa Valley Register
At times regal and at times terribly vulnerable and regretful,
Soman sang the Countess’s two great arias with poise and great
tenderness..." -

"Bharati Soman in the soprano role of the Countess is a tiny
wonder, commanding the stage with grace despite her small
stature." -
