warmth with a voice whose naturally extensive range shows "fine-spun altitudes"

The Eugene register-Guard arts critic in January 2004 described Ronit''s role as Michaela
as follows: "One of the most impressive artists was Ronit Widmann- -Levy
playing...Michaela, the sweet innocent country girl...Widmann -Levy, made her two
arias memorable. Her voice has a weighty tone, and she uses it with solid technique."
