“Young Oper Frankfurt ensemble members Trąbka and Lauritano impressed. Lauritano does a nice line in disdainful looks and peppered the Gypsy Girl’s Song with a touch of bitterness and a golden ring to her top notes. To her fell the plum title song, delivered alone on stage with heartfelt emotion. She sang Frenzied Nights in traditional “Lieder pose” on the stage within a stage with the second pianist, Nikolai Petersen, Sulimsky as the sole audience member. Definitely a singer to watch.” — Bachtrack, Mark Pullinger

“The fact that Golovneva’s thoroughly dramatic soprano and Lauritano’s large, warm, shimmering mezzo allow the already rich timbres to bloom even more multifaceted is as impressive as their acting.” Dass Golovnevas durchaus dramatischer Sopran und Lauritanos großer, warmer, schillernder Mezzo die bereits jetzt reichhaltigen Klangfarben noch facettenreicher blühen lassen, ist so beeindruckend wie ihr Spiel. — Frankfurter Rundschau, Judith von Sternburg

“Expressive, very agile, warmly tinted, in remarkable richness of sound, Kelsey Lauritano, on the other hand, presented her full, round, well-timbred mezzo-soprano.” Ausdrucksstark, sehr beweglich, warm getönt, in beachtlicher Klangfülle präsentierte dagegen Kelsey Lauritano ihren vollen runden wohltimbrierten Mezzosopran. — OnlineMerker, Gerhard Hoffmann

“The soloists accompanied by Mariusz Kłubczuk at the piano are all outstanding, among them Kelsey Lauritano, who underlines the high quality of the Frankfurt ensemble.” Die von Mariusz Kłubczuk am Klavier begleiteten Solist*innen sind allesamt hervorragend, darunter Kelsey Lauritano, die die hohe Qualität des Frankfurter Ensembles unterstreicht. — OpernNews

“The singers were uniformly excellent, as exciting dramatically as they were vocally. Kelsey Lauritano, a member of the Oper Frankfurt ensemble (as is Trąbka), revealed a rich voice perfectly suited for Tchaikovsky’s melodies.” — SeenAndHeardInternational, Rick Perdian
