"What a wonderful butterfly this production has in Kaleigh Rae Gamaché – radiant of presence and voice." - WEAREGREENBAY.COM
"Kaleigh Rae Gamaché’s radiant soprano is perfectly suited to the character she portrays... 'Madame Sherry' gives us numerous variations on what Gamaché’s dramatic arc illustrates, regarding how we best sing the song of ourselves when we can liberate our feelings and fly." -Mike Fischer -MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
"Hence the consistent coloratura in Gamaché’s numbers, reflecting all those irrepressible feelings that can’t be corralled into a straight vocal line." -Mike Fischer - MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
"The 1968 opera itself sounds a bit like warmed-over Shostakovich, but it is effective enough especially when interpreted by a soprano such as Kaleigh Rae Gamaché, who created an endless variety of tone and characterization. This was a tour de force - a grown woman playing a fourteen year old girl without any condescension or over-simplifying - wholly believable." - THE NATION
"The opening night was so packed that extra chairs were brought in, making the aisles hard to negotiate. Sponsored by the German and Israeli Embassies, this was an intense production that moved its audience, some of them to tears." - THE NATION
"Kaleigh Rae Gamaché handles the leaps and precisely tuned giggles with great dexterity." - MILWAUKEE MAGAZINE
"Gamaché, singing effortlessly in the stratosphere—while portraying the roles of maid, confidante, waitress, and mistress—maintained a sassy and libidinous stage presence. She plucked pitches from thin air, sang with easy production, and frolicked, slunk, and served in her various guises with convincing aplomb." - URBAN MILWAUKEE
"There was an impressive performance from Kaleigh Rae Gamaché...who produced a strikingly pure-toned freshness in the roles of Apsara and the Queen of Kashi." -Michael Proudfoot - OPERA
"...and one sassy and svelte maid Serena, played to perfection by Kaleigh Rae Gamaché." -BROADWAYWORLD.COM
