Conchita de Antuñano stands out from her first note as the Troubadour's gypsy
mother. Her sound is consitently impressive.
Contra-Costa Times (CA)
The Mexican mezzo-soprano, Conchita de Antuñano singing the role of Azucena
makes you believe these things could happen: her Azucena is haunted by her
mother's death and fatigued by years of carrying the burden of her secrets. In
the gripping aria in which she describes the fire, Antuñano built tremendous
drama into the story and added dimension to her voice, opening from a low murmor
to a high rich vibrato, spitting out a phrase with clenched fists crying "Il
figlio mio avea bruciato!" with a penetrating shriek..

Other memorable moments were provided by the Mexican mezzo-soprano Conchita de
Antuñano, a particular crowd favorite.
in Recital at Carnegie Recital Hall:
Conchita de Antuñano has a sturdy instrument and a powerful range. Her manners
on stage were elegant.
