As Ruggiero in Alcina by G.F.Handel

Cape Town Opera

November 2022

"For me, the standouts were Setsoane Jeannette Ntseki as Morgana and Megan Kahts as Ruggiero who are both scene-stealers. Kahts commands the stage, even before she dons her army gear and Ntseki's comedic flair as the fickle and (frankly) often-aroused Morgana is a treat."

"Megan Kahts in the trouser role of the Knight Ruggiero matched her performance with a sound grasp of persona, confident singing  and an unexpectedly compelling stage presence given her diminutive figure."

11 November 2022



"Megan Kahts' voice was rich with an adept delivery of her interpretation of Ruggiero."

Die Burger


"Megan Kaht's [...] interpreted the role of the torn knight Ruggiero "devillishly" well in terms of the interplay of voice, presence, facial expressions and gestures. Delicate in her figure but powerful and nuanced in the design of the role and in her voice she has become a leading, oh why not, the leading mezzo-soprano in the baroque repertoire and also has an above-average presence in the Viennese classic."

As Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro by W.A. Mozart

Cape Town Opera

June / July 2022

"As for Cherubino, newly transitioned lyric mezzo soprano Megan Kahts on début in the part makes it her own with gusto, playing the hormonal teenager to the hilt and singing boldly, a welcome inclusion in the array of colourful personae."

21 June 2022



"A wonderful mezzo, already well established internationally, especially in the baroque repertoire, and here a devilishly good Cherubino, a scoundrel, a rascal. Megan [...] sang and played everything against the wall, a miracle that this little devil was not put up against the wall by the Count. Superb and very laid back & fun; great voice and Mozart par excellence!"

As Costanza in L'isola disabitata by J. Haydn

Teatro Barocco in Baden

March 2018

„Megan Kahts is fast becoming Teatro Barocco’s fixed star. She embodies the stylised baroque gesture with perfect grace and shapes the role of Costanza with a warm and dark coloured soprano.”

As Despina in Cosi fan Tutte by W.A. Mozart

Teatro Barocco in the Schlosstheater Laxenburg

March 2017

 “The ensemble is very homogenic, yet the interpreter of Despina – the South African Megan Kahts – stands out especially. She scores equally in her own arias and in the scenes where she is disguised as the Doctor and the Notary. With erotic charm and vocal sovereignty, she plays the key role in this joyously-profound piece about love, jealousy and partner-swapping.”

12 March 2017

Der Neue Merker (Online)


„Megan Kahts lends her flexible, warm soprano, as well as her unbelievable choreographic agility, to the role of his accomplice, Despina; she even serves small obscenities with charm and grace.”

11 March 2017

Kurier Zeitung, Vienna


„the ravishing Megan Kahts as cheeky, capricious Despina“

11 March 2017

Die Kronenzeitung, Vienna

“Vivacious: Megan Kahts

Above all, Megan Kahts, with her theatre-temperament as Despina, and also with her nasal-quacking interpretation of the miracle healer (by the example of the Viennese doctor and magnetizer Franz Anton Mesmer) and of the notary, contributed to the infectious comedy of the evening.”
