«Ceci n'est pas une soprano»
I, me and myself (2016)
«Majestatisch onaantastbaar staat Anna Maistriau in een gestileerd decor, waarin groot en klein op kussentjes zitten. Zelden kwam opera zo dicht, was zang zo bezwerend."»
WOUTER HILLAERT, DE MORGEN, 31.03.2011 (2017)
«"Il soprano Anna Maistriau è stata una convincente Berenice, agevole nella tecnica e dotata di ottime risorse espressive."»
«Die junge, in Belgien geborene Anna Maistriau gab die Titelrolle in ihrem vollen Nuancenreichtum (...) unprätentiös, technisch brillant, musikalisch und darstellerisch glaubhaft»
