Reviews

Anežka
The Two Widows
Pocket Opera
 

"Jaime Korkos brought out the complexity of the mourning widow Anežka, the most interesting character in the opera. Korkos’s winning and beautifully balanced voice delivered her long and varied solo scene in Act Two, a passionate introspection that reminded me of Tatyana’s letter scene in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin — written shortly after Two Widows."

- Nicholas Jones, San Francisco Classical Voice

"Jaime Korkos sang with great attention to detail. Lyrical and lively, she sang with accessible feeling. In Act two, particularly in her solo and subsequent duet with Ladislav, she showed much depth and sensitivity."

- Lois Silverstein, Opera Wire

Cherubino
Le nozze di Figaro
Hubbard Hall Opera Theatre
 

"It helps immensely that the ensemble is comprised of extremely gifted actors... Jaime Korkos takes first prize for the evening.  Her Cherubino is realistic, touching and hilarious and when she is on stage she brings everyone else up to her fantastic energy level."
- Chris Buchanan, Berkshire Fine Arts

Edith
The Pirates of Penzance
Opera Theatre of St. Louis
 

"Jaime Korkos (Edith) made (a) solid impression in (her) featured moments, acting with real commitment and defined purpose, and singing with effortless aplomb."

- Opera Today

 

"Jaime Korkos’ witty Edith... deserve(s) a shout-out."

- St Louis post-dispatch

Doralice
La Gazzetta
New England Conservatory Opera
Orestes
La belle Hélène
Odyssey Opera
 

"Further cast standouts included mezzo Jaime Korkos in full mustached, swaggering glory in the pants role of horny teenager Oreste (nice work making her suit look just a little too big, costume team!)..."

- Zoë Madonna, The Boston Globe

Hannah After
As One
Boston Opera Collaborative
 

"Jaime Korkos and Andrew Miller's... voices blended readily, sounding 'as one', especially near the end. Each actor did a fine job with the solo material... the pair shined in their duets, however, where the harmonies got top billing."

-  Ian Wiese, Boston Musical Intelligencer

Lady Angela
Patience
Odyssey Opera
 

"The strength of this cast was most manifest in the secondary roles... Jaime Korkos as Lady Angela (was) a comic and vocal gem."

- Kevin Wells, Bachtrack

The three soloists from among the “rapturous maidens”... set the aesthetic scene splendidly:  Jaime Korkos (Lady Angela) explained in comic/tragic tone of the ladies’ hopeless love, and she was splendid in the charming duet “Long years ago..."

-Steven Ledbetter, Boston Musical Intelligencer

La Ciesca
Gianni Schicchi
Hubbard Hall Opera Theatre

"Jaime Korkos, with buffanted hair and purple eyeshadow, is a consummate actress with a fine ringing tone.  She comes to life most vividly when, with body language and whispering, she attempts to extract a promise from Schicchi to gift her the all-important mule, mills and mansion. "
- Chris Buchanan, Berkshire Fine Arts

"Jaime Korkos (Doralice) was a strong vocal character with a fine comic sense."

- Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

"(the cast) included an engaging mezzo- soprano as  Doralice, Artist Diploma in Opera singer Jaime Korkos, vivacious and idiomatic in her frequent ensemble work."

- Opera con Brio
 

Zwei Gesänge
Brahms Opus 91
Joachim Conference Boston

"Korkos, a mezzo-soprano, came across (with) beautiful tone, exquisite phrasing, and wonderful diction."

- Alejandro Enrique Planchart, Boston Musical Intelligencer
