Washington classical review

Charles T. Downey

...a striking discovery was mezzo-soprano Hagar Sharvit, who was an outstanding Zenobia. In her showpiece aria in the first act, “Son contenta di morire,” she displayed remarkably even articulated runs, and had the extended chest range for Handel’s initial casting of the role for a contralto. Her vocal intensity went well with a forceful stage presence, especially as she alternated between spitting rage and tender sweetness in the cavatina “Empio, perverso cor!״

Opera con Brio

Richard B. Beams

As for Zenobia, Ms. Sharvit had the depth of range for a role originally written for a contralto. Her lyric mezzo voice mixed eloquently with the strings in “Son contenta di moire,” her poignant acceptance of death in Act I. In another vein, she exhibited stunning vocal intensity in her aria late in Act II, “Empio perverso cor,” addressed alternately with vehemence to the treacherous tyrant, Tiridate, and with soft-breathed devotion to her disguised husband. The joyous duet of reconciliation that soon follows to close the act (and leads to the ensuing graceful dance) was also a happy union of two voices that blended well.

Opernglas

J. Gahre

Die als Soldat verkleidete Emira findet in der Mezzosopranistin Hagar Sharvit eine exzellente Sängerin. Als hassefüllte Frau, die ihren von Cosroe getöteten Vater rächen will, geht sie an emotionale Grenzen, um dann aber als Geliebte Siroes wieder ganz Frau sein zu können. Ihre fulminaten Auftritte sind mitreißend, und die schwierigen Koloraturen bereiten ihr, so scheint es, keinerlei Probleme.

FRANZ STRAATMAN

.. the Israeli hagar sharvit is a mezzo-soprano to keep an eye on. She sings breathtaking the spectacular beautiful coloraturas that Hasse wrote for her role, as well as singing lines full of tragedy…

Count the outstanding cast and you’ll see why this production is important from start to finish. Mezzo-Soprano, Hagar Sharvit… with a fantastic voice, a fascinating presence…

IOCO

Guido Müller

Hagar Sharvit als Emira bezaubert nicht nur mit ihrem Spiel, sondern beeindruckt mit enormer gesanglicher Finesse wie in ihrer empfindsamen Schäferinnen-Arie „Non vi piacque“ zum Abschluss des zweiten Aktes, die Mozarts spätere Arien etwa in Don Giovanni vorwegnimmt. Ihre große anklagende und an ähnliche Arien Mozarts in Idomeneo oder La Clemenza di Tito gemahnende Furien-Bravourarie Che furia, che monstro im dritten Akt lässt das Blut gefrieren.
