Mary Gayle Greene’s combination of vocalism, musicianship, stage presence and theatrical ability has earned her enthusiastic worldwide praise: Das Opern Glas has lauded, “Ms. Greene’s singing was superb…she has a bright voluminous voice.” “One should note…the extraordinary mezzo-soprano Mary Gayle Greene. This is a voice of molten chocolate. What a voice!” exclaimed the News and Observer when describing Greene’s “dark mahogany, deep plush mezzo-soprano sound.” “…Mary Gayle Greene’s singing was of the highest caliber” noted the Bonner Rundshau.

The composer Gian Carlo Menotti “was absolutely struck by her terrific performance” of one of his works after she was called on short notice to fill in for a singer who became ill. From the fioratura of Bach and Handel, to the dramatic proclamations of Richard Strauss, Greene commands an impressive breadth of repertoire encompassing many musical styles. Her interpretations include those of the bel canto of Bellini and Rossini, as well as those of the lyric and dramatic music of Mozart and Verdi.
