Reviews
The Medium   |   Syracuse Opera
The cast was vocally attractive... As the Medium's daughter, Julia Ebner contributed a bright voice and sympathetic portrayal.

Carmen   |   Tri-Cities Opera
Ebner's Micaela was appropriately winsome and shy, beautifully clear voiced in her initial meeting with José. Her Act 3 air ("Je dis que rien ne m'epouvante") was sweetly sung and quite touching.

Carmen   |   Tri-Cities Opera
The foil for Carmen is Micaela, and Julia Ebner did a lovely job as Jose's sweetheart from home, her aria as pure and sparkling as Carmen is mysterious.

Don Giovanni   |   Tri-Cities Opera
The Donna Anna of soprano Julia Ebner was vocally and dramatically superb. Her duet with her fiancé ("Fuggi, crudele, fuggi") was crisp and forceful and her recitative recounting her attack and the subsequent aria ("Or sai chi l'onore") were sung with a sensitive attention to the text. Ebner's long second act aria explaining her reasons for postponing her marriage to Ottavio ("Non mi dir") was beautifully sung with a splendid tenuto before the final repeat of the incipit.

Romeo et Juliette   |   Tri-Cities Opera
Both young people of the title roles — tenor Marlin Miller and soprano Julia Ebner — cut youthful and attractive figures and their initial meeting was realized with a touching poignancy. Ebner's childlike excitement in her air "Écoutez! écoutez!" displayed good, well-supported singing in clearly enunciated French. The waltzing gaiety of "Ah! je veux vivre danse la rève," was sung with beautiful phrasing and wonderful trills. Ebner's questioning of her lover's sincerity ("Quelqu'un ira demain te trouver") created a beautifully expressed moment of solemnity amid the mutual torrent of otherwise tender expressions. Miller and Ebner's duets — "Ô nuit divine!," "Nuit d'hyménée!" and especially "Dieu de bonté!" in the final scene, were beautifully and touchingly sung.

The Merry Widow   |   Tri-Cites Opera
The central couple in the story, Anna and Danilo, were played by Julia Ebner and Gregory Smith, who worked well with one another and provided moments of convincing chemistry. Anna's song "Vilia" was particularly haunting.

La Boheme   |   Tri-Cities Opera
The other romantic pair is Musetta and Marcello, performed by Julia Ebner and Richard Galyon. The two played the on-again-off-again relationship to the comic hilt and had no difficulties switching to somber when required.

Die Zauberflöte   |   Tri-Cites Opera
Papgeno's lovely duet ("Bei manner") with the well-matched Pamina of Soprano Julia in Act 1 was breathtakingly gorgeous. Ebner made a tall, elegant and beautiful princess with clear, focused and unforced singing. Her grief-stricken "Ach, ich fulh's" in Act 2 exhibited fine phrasing and lovely top notes, and her brief quartet with the Three Spirits after her attempted suicide was enchanting.

The Medium   |   Tri-Cites Opera
Julia Ebner as Baba's long-suffering daughter/accomplice Monica was outstanding and handled the subtelies of the character with ease.

Lots of good performances, but no happy endings in TCO double bill
