Nancy Weißbach is an enchantingly beautiful, excellently articulating and with a clear, powerful soprano equipped Wotan daughter – Oper! 2019
Online Musik Magazin
Nancy Weißbach gives her first appearance on a business card, on the „Hojotoho“ shouts that you get so accurate, sonorous and expressive rare to hear. And that applies to their entire design of the lot. Her substance-rich soprano flowers full of color and lush. The voice sits safely and without flickering. When she sings the proclamation of death from a back lodge in the auditorium, her excellent vocal technique becomes particularly audible.
