Mozart COSI FAN TUTTE / Metropolitan Opera

“The soprano Heidi Stober has been away from the Met for a few seasons, but returns with a cheerfully bright, natural, unexaggerated Despina.”

Zachary Woolfe, New York Times (February 2020)

“As Despina, Heidi Stober carried herself with a fiery, magnetic energy that shone through the character’s many desires and disguises.”

Logan Martell, OperaWire (February 2020)

“Heidi Stober’s serviceable soprano put across Despina’s “Una donna a quindici anni,” with flair, and she brought conspiratorial glee and a randy elbow in the ribs to the role.”

David Wright, New York Classical Review, (February 2020)
