“DiMarzio does impressive, instantaneous transitions between vulgar and soulful, and she widens her vibrato to great effect as the character's insanity increases over the course of the show. Her last, plaintive "Hey, don't I know you, Mister" is hair-raising."

The Opera News



“DiMarzio stands out with her brassy,
to-hell-with-convention gusto…"

Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe




Stephen Sondheim tribute featuring Diana DiMarzio

“…wonderful in the role. Thanks for screeching
the "mischiefs." You sang it the way I had intended.
I thought I had written it wrong…. you proved
to me that I didn’t. Thank you.”

Stephen Sondheim

Writes Patti LuPone about castmate Diana DiMarzio:
“I love watching this woman every night. Not only on stage but off stage. The silent dedication and gratitude. She is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and it shows. She and I work together in a couple of scenes and how it shows up the most is in her technique. I love an actor with technique. I’ll try something new and Diana is right there with me. She’s game, she’s alive every minute she’s on that stage. She also has this voice that’s freakish. It sounds like a dramatic soprano but she also belts with the same weight. And this girl will never miss a performance. She loves being on stage. How lucky I am to be on stage with her.”

Playbill/ Patti LuPone


“Finally, among the major roles, soprano Diana DiMarzio’s
weird and perfectly realized Beggar Woman—whose character
proves surprisingly central to the plot—was both colorful
and creepy. As a vocalist, she was fearless, burying what is
clearly a fine voice by wrapping it in a halting character on
the outer edges of complete madness. When a singer takes
risks like this, the result is a truly memorable evening of opera.”

Curtain Up / CDN Fairfax, Virginia


“DiMarzio's vocal quality is distinct from the others and her
rendition of "You're Nearer"
has a little echo of Judy Garland…”

Broadway World


“Pretty much everyone is close to perfection here…”

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

She reminds one of Nancy Walker or
Ethel Merman back in the day
