Hire Anna Chierichetti ›
«...Remplaçant Mary Dunleavy souffrante, Anna Chierichetti a le premier mérite de sauver la représentation sans le moindre faux pas. Après un début prudent, elle laisse s’épanouir une voix qui ne manque ni de fermeté ni de chaleur, avec une agilité qui lui permet d’affronter sans faillir la cabalette finale.»
Opèra International (2016)
«...Cuando se anuncia un cambio en el reparto se suele esperar que sea a la baja. Pues bien, en este caso no solamente fue hacia arriba, sino hacia lo quasi perfecto. A la americana Dunleavy la sustituyó la italiana Chierichetti, y creanme que salimos ganando con el cambio, Posee esta mujer una tesitura de largo recorrido y de justa anchura, con una emisión potente y bien focalizada. Su timbre es inquietante por el bruñido en los armónicos de su metal. Domina las agilidades y fiorituras con perfección, como dejó patente en la segunda parte de la cabaletta Ah!non giunge uman pensiero, que resultó un auténtico baño de emoción para los sentidos. Que Amina!»
