«“... with soprano Ana Isabel Lazo in "Udiste? Come albeggi" from Verdi’s Il Trovatore. Lazo, with her dusky lower range and gleaming high notes, had earlier channeled her alluring voice into a haunting, anguished performance of "The Lament of the Yellow River" from Xian Jinghai’s Yellow River Cantata.”»
Seen and Heard International, Rick Perdian, November 2016 (Recital for the Qintai Music Festival, Wuhan, China) (2018)
«“... Ana Isabel Lazo, is Fiordiligi, one of the hardest Mozart roles; she was the best of the show, because of her vocal maturity, using her full voice, pianissimi and coloratura without problems. Her character is always present, between strength, passion and melancholia. The voice results always homogeneous and full of overtones.”»
No Crime Only Art, Dalila Cardinali, June 2017 (Così fan Tutte, Auditorium del Carmine, Parma, Italy) (2018)
«“…A beautiful and stunning Tosca, intimidates at the beginning because of her beauty and stage presence. An aggressive Tosca, sometimes loving, sometimes wicked, sings a “Vissi d’arte” traveling over the notes of the score full of traps with bewitching ease. The final duet with Cavaradossi is a master piece, and the audience bursts in applause…”»
