Popularity of ‘Carmen’ demands more of PORTopera

...there were strong contributions from singers in smaller roles, among them Kenneth Kellogg (Zuniga), Jorelle Williams (Moralès), Maeve Höglund (Frasquita) and Sahoko Sato (Mercédès).

Carmen - PORTopera, Portland, ME

The appealing foursome of gypsies and smugglers was led by the bright soprano of Maeve Hoagland as Frasquita, and featured strong ensemble singing by Sahoko Sato, Robert Mellon and Lucas Levy. The sparkling Act II quintet was notable for its clarity as Lord held singers and orchestra to a lively pace.

‘¡Figaro! (90210),’ a California Love Triangle

Among the impressive young cast members are Emma Grimsley as the sullen Barbara; Sahoko Sato Timpone as Ms. Soon-Yi-Nam, an assertive factory owner and Susana’s former employer (Mozart’s Marcellina); and Ethan Herschenfeld as Babayan, an Armenian mafioso (Mozart’s Bartolo.)

¡Figaro! (90210)

Sahoko Sato Timpone gleefully embraces The Dragon Lady stereotype for her mirthfully steely characterization as Ms. Soon-Yi Nam.

Voices in My Head: Opera Manhattan Festival in Review

The Princess who tears it all apart was played by Sahoko Sato, and when she entered, her appearance and voice were the definition of elegance. Her gleaming mezzo fit the role of the princess very nicely.

James Zollar: Zollar System

...together with Japanese mezzo-soprano, Sahoko Sato—turns the operatic "A Time to Say Goodbye" into a thrilling encounter between the human voice and Zollar's Miley one on trumpet.

Marriage of Figaro Match made in almost heaven

Sahoko Sato was natty in the role of Cherubino, the boy smitten with the countess. Mozart invested some great melody in the part, and Sato delivered with élan.

'Marriage of Figaro' is still full of magic

Sahoko Sato, as Cherubino, is a woman playing a man's role that later in the story has her change from a man's costume into a woman's costume and later into a man's costume yet again.
Not only that, but she sang with the voice of an angel.

Syracuse Opera ends season with a fetching 'Figaro'

...adds the page Cherubino (saucy mezzo-soprano Sahoko Sato in a great turn), who unwittingly and repeatedly upsets plans to expose the Count's duplicity.

Don't Tell Papa: I Got Married Before Sister Did

And Sahoko Sato, a mezzo-soprano, made Fidalma a sympathetic character despite her foolish crush on a younger man.
