Angelica in Ralph Vaughn Williams' The Poisoned Kiss with the Bronx Opera
Tormentilla’s maid, Angelica, was played with gawky comic flair by Cabiria Jacobsen, who revealed a mezzo of richness and power.
Jacobsen was by turns saucy, exasperated and man-hungry, exhibiting a wonderfully limber physicality. Her refreshingly comprehensible Irish accent was a clear extension of her character, rather than an affectation.
However, of unexpected shining distinction, was the maid. Yes, the maid did it, and funny she was, the mezzo-soprano Cabiria Jacobsen. Her comic timing, delivery, and edgy voice truly proved the antidote.
Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro at Opera North
Ms. Jacobsen’s portrayal in the beloved trouser role of Cherubino, the heartsick page boy, was as exquisite as any by Frederica von Stade in its intoxicatingly understated, yet believably endearing delivery, complete with the rich splendor of her radiant upper tessitura and her finely blended lower range.
Cabiria Jacobsen was appealing as Cherubino, the young cub who is discovering love and lust.
Nicklausse in Les contes d'Hoffman with Tri-Cities Opera
In the roles of Nicklausse, the Muse, and Antonia’s mother, Cabiria Jacobsen was exceptional. Hers is a well-rounded and warm mezzo, evenly placed with ease in her vocal registers.
Dorabella in Mozart's Cosi fan tutte at Tri-Cities Opera
As her sister, Dorabella, mezzo Cabiria Jacobsen was a revelation. The voice had a rich and warm tone, and she acted up a storm. Particularly effective in the many trios and ensembles, Jacobsen promises a bright vocal future and is surely one to watch as her career ascends.
