Eva Noblezada defies gravity in a pops concert

Feb 15, 2016


Nobody covered Tryon Street in flowers or dropped confetti from office towers, but a champion flew back to Charlotte this week.
Eva Noblezada, who's finishing her West End run as Kim in "Miss Saigon" and will step into the London "Les Miserables" after that, gave her first local professional performance Friday night with Albert-George Schram and the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.

Folks who saw her as recently as three years ago in a musical at Charlotte's Northwest School of the Arts can say, "I told you so." The rest of us can just say, "Wow."

She'll turn 20 next month and already has the chops of an established Broadway star not just a first-rate voice but stage presence. She sells a song without overselling it. She doesn't show all of her top notes or vocal tricks at once. She sings evenly across her range and has unusually good diction, even at the top of it.
