Sang CASILDA in "The Gondoliers" and ROSE MAYBUD in "Ruddigore" at Sir Arthur Sullivan's Sesquicentennial (The Great Gilbert and Sullivan Sing-Out), Rockville, Maryland, in 1992, resulting in these comments in a national Gilbert and Sullivan magazine:

 

"Alida Augen (Casilda) produced a beautifully clear, bright tone, and she exuded sophistication and quality."

 

"Ruddigore had several of the day's best performers.  The scenes between Tim Jerome as Robin and Alida Augen as Rose stood out among the day's highlights.  Miss Augen's perfectly sculptured voice seemed like a dream come true."

 - Mark Shepherd, National G&S Magazine
