“[The setting] worked beautifully, with excellent acting and singing by Hauck, Penar and the three ladies (Holly Boaz, Celeste Godin and Julia Benzinger).” — City Arts (on The Magic Flute, Second Lady)
“Celeste Godin was an impressive Rodolfo. She has a classic Puccini spinto quality voice; a steely sound without being strident.” —The Theater Times (on La Femme Boheme, Rodolfo)
“Celeste Godin was a completely brilliant Rudolfo, a vocal powerhouse and dramatically charismatic.” — Boston Musical Intelligencer (on La Femme Boheme, Rodolfo)
“Lovely ensemble singing came from the Dryad, Naiad and Echo.” — Boston Musical Intelligencer (on Ariadne auf Naxos, Echo)
“This performance ranks with those of the best national preparatory companies (like San Francisco’s Merola program).” — Boston Musical Intelligencer (on Dialogues of the Carmelites, Blanche de la Force)
Celeste Godin is a local soprano who enjoys all art forms. Although her primary craft is singing opera, she enjoys painting in acrylics and creating small ink illustrations. As a child, she participated in many art competitions, including the International Children’s Art Festival, where she represented the state of Oregon in a festival at Washington DC. She also showed and sold her art in galleries in her home town of Gresham. Although she has since lent her painting skills primarily to the scenic arts for many of the productions in which she is involved, she is eager to once again participate in the world of visual art.
