"The Swedish soprano’s sheer versatility is breathtaking. Every role she sings, be it Donna Anna, Salome or Tosca, seems to fit her like a glove. As well as combining haughtiness with vulnerability, she brings a spinto gorgeousness to Puccini’s heroine and imbues her with greater undercurrents of subtext than most of her peers can muster. It is a very special performance." Mark Valencia/Seen and Heard International 30 Nov 2022
