SIRIUS XM MET OPERA RADIO: Intermission Interview  with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Margaret Juntwait
"I don't believe that a woman has to "do" anything (to make sure that every man on the scene falls completely in love with her without going over the top).  Her being a WOMAN makes everyone instantly respond to her.  Just be your beautiful, feminine, wonderful self..."

Interview  with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Margaret Throsby
"(As artists) That is what we are called to do (To not only bring to life what the composer has given us, but an individual artistry as well) because we are not robots.  And this music that is sitting on the page is nothing without a voice with which to bring it alive..."

THE DENVER POST:  Professional and Personal Drama - Interview with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Ray Mark Rinaldi
"It's not that Kizart is above drama – and she knows how to conjure it. She's sung at The Met and with companies across Europe and Australia. "Opera News" noted her "glamorous tone color." A New York Times reviewer call her "lustrous." Kizart has a certain star quality…"


QANTAS THE AUSTRALIAN WAY: Eager Diva - Interview with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Leta Keens
"Kizart can't remember the first opera she heard. "Every time I read interviews with great singers, they always say there was one operatic performance or singer that drew them to opera.  That was never the case for me – what actually drew me to opera was my (own) voice..."

THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIA:
Force of Destiny - Interview with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Shirley Apthorp
""It's more about the portrayal of the character. There's a certain discipline in what we do, and that's the exciting thing because it also has a freedom of expression and inspiration. It's about communication. If I am not communicating a soul to you, then I might as well just sit down somewhere. Really."  That would sound like standard singer rhetoric if I hadn't seen Kizart do exactly that, rising above mediocre surroundings with a passion of conviction that gripped everyone present..."

On the Beat - Interview with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Brian Kellow
"Her first professional contract came while she was still a student — as the Duchess in THOMAS ADÈS's Powder Her Face with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie in Bremen. "I learned the music in four days," she recalls. "I thought, 'Well, this is wonderful — nothing I will ever do in my life will ever be this difficult. If I can do this in four days and have a success in it, I can do anything.'..."


OPERAGASM:
Exclusive Interview with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Melissa Wimbish
" My first public performance took place at the age of two.  Singing and music are my PASSION, my soul’s communion with my Creator… nourishing my soul, enlightening my life, allowing me to learn better, live better, and love better!  I continually thank God for blessing me with such an awe-inspiring creation!..."

TIMES SQUARE & THE FLIP SIDE: Opera Preview with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Kevin Filipski
"From the time I was little, I was a human jukebox, and I’ve always been quick at picking up melodies. Someone told me that it will help me with Alzheimer’s later in life, keep my brain power longer. (laughs) I hope so!..."

CAPITAL NEW YORK:  A diva charts her own course to the Met - Interview with TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART
Zachary Woolfe
"I have always strived to be the type of artist that they now seem to want," she said. "I don't find any pressure from anyone else but myself. I always want to make sure that I look my best, and sound my best, and am prepared to the best of my ability. I'm preparing my legacy right now. I want to look back with pride..."

THE AGE AUSTRALIA:
Interview with  TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART

Nicole Trian
"This is one of my favourite lines: 'And then when all of this is over I will close your eyes with a thousand kisses and with a thousand different names of love I will call you.'  Isn't that amazing, that after the turmoil she still focuses on the fact that the love was worth it?" Kizart says…"

TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART



is worthy of all superlatives. With a breathtaking mastery and unflinching portrayals... a vocal flexibility that enables her to acutely pass from a tearful murmur to a firm luminosity. And her dramatic intelligence is worthy of the great "lionesses" of the lyric theater. An artist whose international career is still at its dawning, this young and beautiful American should reach the summit quickly. Provided, of course, that she preserves the incandescent glow that currently emanates from her every word and gesture.
