Ilia in Idomeneo – The In Series

DC Theatre Scene
"As Pricess Ilia, amazingly strong performer Randa Rouweyha headlines a roster of strong supporting voices with her chill-inducing soprano."

The Washington Post
"Soprano Randa Rouweyha, noble and ardent as Ilia."

DC Metro Theatre
"Princess Illia, amazingly strong performer Randa Rouweyha."

The Washington Times
"Soprano Randa Rouweyha, long one of our favorites, did not disappoint as Princess Ilia. Hers is a lush, well-tempered voice, and she also pays great attention to diction—a must even in an English language production that doesn’t include the extra assist provided by surtitles. Ms. Rouweyha’s acting abilities further enhance the sympathy drawn to her character, making her performance perhaps the most well rounded effort of this ensemble."

Geraldine in A Hand of Bridge - The In Series

MD Theatre Guide
"All four cast members sing beautifully, but it’s Rouweyha’s stunning soprano that shines in this piece. As her gorgeous voice soars and she laments how she did not love her now-dying mother while she was still healthy – it’s achingly devastating. A Hand of Bridge may be a short opera, but it packs quite a wallop!"

The Washington Post
"Soprano Randa Rouweyha had the best vocal turn, in Geraldine's sad, lyrical plea for her ailing mother. "

La Marquesita/Marge in El Barberillo de Lavapiés - The In Series

The Washington Times
"At the top of their game are Randa Rouweyha (Estrella), Alvaro Rodriguez (Don Luis)...Rouweyha and Rodriguez are a delight as the quarreling, time-traveling couple. "

DC Theatre Scene
"Rouweyha has never been more assured than in her comedic role as Marge, with a thick nasal accent, sharp tongue, and a hairdo worthy of “The Sopranos.”"

Nedda in I Pagliacci - The In SeriesNedda in I Pagliacci - The In Series

The Washington Times
"As Nedda in Pagliacci, soprano Randa Rouweyha—whom we’ve heard and admired in Washington National Opera productions — gets to strut her stuff here as Leoncavallo’s brittle, two-timing anti-heroine. With her clean, elegant vocal lines and perfect diction, she’s simply terrific in a role which seems almost tailor-made for her impressive skills as both singer and thespian."

The Washington Post
"Randa Rouweyha gave the role of Nedda, Canio's unfaithful wife, a nice combination of toughness, brittleness and fragility..."

Pamina in The Magic Flute - The In Series

The Washington Times
"The evening's standout was soprano Randa Rouweyha. Her Pamina was totally ready for prime time, her tone bell-clear, her pitch spot-on."

Opera-L
"One of the musical highlights of the afternoon occurred here with the Pamina-Papageno Duet, 'I'd like to believe that happy endings.' Indeed, Ms. Rouweyha was easily the most talented singer in this cast!"

"In Act II, again the highlight was Ms. Rouweyha, here with "I'm a fool to think he's different" with the wonderful lyric:"He left me without looking back; he's a selfish evil maniac."

Tina (Despina) in Cosi Fan Tutte goes Hollywood  - The In Series

The Washington Times
"Crystal-clear soprano Randa Rouweyha was in fine voice throughout, displaying a nifty comic flair as she donned a pair of flamboyant disguises to help further Fonso's nefarious plot."

The Washington Post
"Soprano Randa Rouweyha, as an aspiring starlet and Gus's agent and provocateur, was both a splendid comic and a fine singer."

Opera-L
"A stellar performance in wonderful costumes as the medic and justice of the peace from soprano Randa Rouweyha as Tina, the aspiring starlet."

All Arts Review 4U
"Mozart’s Despina is a hopeless scene-stealer, and Randa Rouweyha as Olcutt’s Tina is just as avaricious.  She is a costumer’s delight, with a face that responds well to oversized fake or trick glasses.  Rouweyha is perennially knowing in the role."

DC Theater Scene
"Tina, the soubrette schemer, who disguises herself as a doctor with Harpo Marx-like glasses, shines in the aria “Now in agricultivation”,  when she urges Florrie and Dorrie to succumb to their Hollywood lovers."

Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro - The Washington National Opera

Intermission
"Ms. Rouweyha's handling of Barberina, a larger role than that of the Foreign Woman she filled so well in The Consul earlier this season, showed herself to have more talent than the company has yet fully tapped."

|Top|

 

The Foreign Woman in The Consul - The Washington National Opera

Classical Singer Magazine
"Each of the supporting roles was well-sung and effectively acted. Mary Gresock's Anna Gomez and Randa Rouweyha's Foreign Woman were beautifully sung and poignantly acted personifications of the desperate "Faces" that the Secretary's rule-focus can't obliterate."

The Review
"Soprano Randa Rouweyha had a lovely, endearing voice and manner as the despairing Foreign Woman who needs a visa to go care for her ill daughter."

Eurydice in Orpheus in the Underworld - The In Series

The Washington Times
"Outstanding was soprano Randa Rouweyha as Eurydice. With a light, easy voice and excellent diction, she proved the perfect foil to Orpheus and the gods. One of the evening's highlights was her amusing duet with Mr. Jackson's Jupiter, who, having turned himself into a golden fly, buzzes all his notes in reply."

DC Theatre Scene
"Randa Rouweyha, whose coloratura soprano has impressive range, brings the neglected-wife Eurydice, down-to-earth, as she takes center stage for some anguished emoting.  But what’s really delicious is the take-off on Gluck’s “Dance of the Furies,” reduced to the interlocking melodic imitation of a fly buzzing around Eurydice. The vocal blend of Brian Jackson and Rouweyha let the “Fly Duet” unfold like a resplendent rose."

Mari Pepa in La Revoltosa - The In Series

De Washington Al Mundo - Carlos Joaquín
"Hay muchas sopranos, pero lo que distingue a las buenas de las buenas son las mejores.  Randa Rouweyha con su rol de Mari Pepa goza de una voz que le acaricia el tímpano al oyente.  Con una coquetería única hizo de su interpretación de Mari Pepa algo único e incomparable en su clase."

The Washington Post
"Randa Rouweyha sang Mari Pepa with a pretty, silvery soprano."

Miss Silverpeal in The Impresario - The In Series

The Whashington Times
"It's not surprising that dueling divas Kate Vetter Cain and Randa Rouweyha had the most fun in this little opera, which gave them ample opportunity to show off their vocal prowess — and their claws — which they did with great relish."

The Washington Post
"In "The Impresario," sopranos Kate Vetter Cain and Randa Rouweyha played the farce to the fullest, tackling some truly stratospheric roulades."

|Top|

 

Susanna and Zerlina in Mozart's Men - The In Series

All Arts Review 4U
"Randa Rouweyha's well acted roles fit in nicely with her fine peppery stage presence and her lyrical soprano."

|Top|

 

Duo recital with Vocal Arts Society

Opera-L
"The pairing of the voices and contrast was a perfect counterpoint, with Ms. Rouweyha's coloratura soprano managing the fast Rossini" easily. These are young artists that really deserve this concert series and I trust we shall see their names more often at the opera in the future!

Joint concert with Vocal Arts Society

Opera-L
"Ms. Rouweyha having being of Lebanese heritage has equal and excellent footing in the French and Arabic schools.  It was a real treat to hear her Arabic."

Abigail in The Crucible - Inspiration Point Fine Arts Colony

Arkansas Times
"Soprano Randa Rouweyha as Abigail was excellent vocally.
"
