“Lynn Spurgat as Norma....delivered a rousing bel canto finale of Act One of Vincenzo Bellini's Norma with most so-called cuts opened. The two sopranos created a particular frisson when they joined voices in the cadenza at the end of "Adalgisa. Alma, costanza...Ah! si fa core, e abbraciami".....Spurgat's "Tremi tu? E per chi?" and "Vanne, si: mi lascia, indegno" were fittingly fiery and she interpolated a formidable high D near the end. I rather hoped that all three singers would go for the D....but, (they) were gracious and left the high note for the protagonist alone.”
Q on Stage

“Norma was the beautiful dramatic soprano, Lynn Spurgat, whose rich tones, beautiful artistry, and accurately sung fioratura, in this, her first ever Norma, (including the high D in the trio) made it thrilling to hear this truly wonderful pure voice.”
Opera L

“In a stellar performance... Ms. Spurgat stole the show with her engaging style and mesmerizing vocals...(Ms. Spurgat) offered a chillingly powerful and perfect performance.”
St. Joseph News-Press

“Soprano, Lynn Spurgat, quite a finished young artist, was particularly endearing both for her diminutive, appealing physical presence and for her creamy, soothing voice...This last duet{Così fan tutte}...was notable for the exquisite, even sisterly blending the two women achieved.”
