Operatic Coloratura Soprano

"...vocally and dramatically, Sophie Salvesani, who from the first moment succeeds in bringing the inner glow, the suffering and the turmoil of Maria to the viewer's perceptions, especially charms the audience." (Translated)
Elbmargarita, April 2019
"Sophie Salvesani (Maria) easily navigated the demands of the score, and her clear soprano soared in her duets with Tony...Maria could be something of a one-dimensional character, but Salvesani imbues her performance with wit, charm and warmth, especially performing the iconic "I feel pretty", which can come off as trite, but her Maria and her friends add just the right amount of verve and mischief. Salvesani allows Maria to grow through both the thunderclap of first (and forbidden) love, and the tragedy she suffers as a result to become a moral force in the final scene, begging for the endless cycle of violence to stop."
Alex Armstrong, Stage Whispers, April 2019
"... Sophie Salvesani exhibits a heavenly soprano voice. Her high C at the end of “Tonight Quintet:” is to die for...Salvesani’s highly focused performance ensures that Maria’s journey from impatient, wide-eyed girl to dreamy lover to broken young woman (which takes place over a mere two days) is as authentic as it is impactful."
