D'Ana Lombard, complete with a convincing German accent, is a remarkably strong Eva Crowley.

The Countess Rosina Almaviva not only wore the most elegant gowns in the show, but also sang two on the most gorgeous arias imaginable: "Porgi, amor, qualche ristoro" from act II and "Dove sono i bei momenti" from act III. Both were sung, with heart-breaking passion by D'Ana Lombard.

As Countess Almaviva, soprano D'Ana Lombard brought a patrician elegance to her musical attempts to reignite the Count's passion.

D'Ana Lombard's Mimi was hauntingly expressive, her fluid soprano sending arias and duets forth poignantly.
- The Washington Post
D'Ana Lombard - last night's Mimi was excellent; this is Ms. Lombard's second year as a Filene Young Artist; she played Rosina in last year's Ghosts of Versailles; I always feel a little tension at an opera until I hear the lead soprano sing; if she is good, I relax and enjoy it. Ms. Lombard is very, very good. Her singing was expressive and her voice has a beautiful tone.

Something that made me sit up and marvel was D'Ana Lombard's performance as, and I am not kidding you here, Water. It was so unexpected. She appears out of a small door in the latter part of the second act, in a silver mylar flowing wig, and she is kind of a revelation. Of course, Portman wrote for this role a brilliant and brief aria. Lombard made the most out of it, however, recalling Debussy's Melisande, or perhaps a fourth, more reticent and benevolent Rhinemaiden. I am going to watch out for her in upcoming productions.

But the real star is buried in this production in ensembles until, in the final minutes, somebody was smart enough to give her the saving part of Water. Soprano D'Ana Lombard has a naturally rich voice - it never sounds like she's working to project - that soars majestically from a window above the Little Prince and the Pilot just when they've almost given up hope. But, as her many ensemble pieves proved, she knows her voice well and can control it quickly to blend. It's a skill not every soprano is willing to utilize.
