«La protagonista France Dariz ci conquista subito con la freschezza di una voce capace di comunicare - attraverso un fraseggio sempre musicale e partecipe - lo slancio amoroso, la vulnerabilità e l'orgoglio di Aida.»
ARENA.IT - GIANNI VILLANI (2016)
«France Dariz allowed her voice to act for her. If at first , her low register seemed weak and her diction lacked weight, as the evening progressed her performance strengthened, and her lustrous, unwavering top notes consisently soaring and rounded, were never tired or pushed. This was matched by her clean articulation and ability both to diminish and augment the dynamics of high sustained notes, which added pathos and expressivity to her phrasing. She was generous in the ensembles with ringing, full-bodied top notes often doubled by the chorus. With further experience and a fine-tuning of her vocality, the quality of her strong, beautiful voice and her overall performance can only mature»
GB Opera Magazine (2016)
«L’ “Incontro con Puccini”, tenutosi ieri al Comunale a favore dell’Ado, sottolineato dall’esecuzione delle arie delle sue opere più famose, ha avuto il successo che meritava. Un pubblico numeroso e soprattutto generoso, nonostante la bella giornata invitasse più ad una gita al mare che a un pomeriggio a teatro, ha apprezzato le qualità interpretative dei cantanti, del coro polifonico di Santo Spirito e dell’Università degli studi di Ferrara accompagnati dall’Orchestra Città di Ferrara e di France Dariz che ha sostituito all’ultimo minuto il soprano Anna Pirozzi...»
La Nuova Ferrarà : Margherita Goberti (2016)
«Una bella rappresentazione di Aida al teatro Rossini di Pesaro. Pubblico per un evento unico ​ Certamente la figura di Aida, interpretata mirabilmente dal soprano France Dariz ha primeggiato sugli altri interpreti. La Dariz è scesa nel ruolo in maniera perfetta, alternando una vocalità profonda e appassionata, con piani e forti ad acuti formidabili.»
PAOLO MONTANARI-PESARONOTIZIE (2018)
«La soprano française France Dariz ovationnée dans Turandot au Festival de Macerata Turandot semblait payer de malchance après la malencontreuse chute (dans les rues escarpées de Macerata) de la soprano suédoise Iréne Theorin qui devait interpréter le rôle-titre (dans lequel nous l'avons entendue au festival de Peralada l’été dernier). C’est donc sa doublure qui a pris la relève… et quelle relève… d’autant plus réjouissante que France Dariz - à qui finalement échoit le rôle - est française ! Encore une grande voix hexagonale qui ne trouve pas sa place dans sa patrie d’origine (nous n’en avions tout simplement jamais entendu parler…), et qui fait carrière en interprétant les grands rôles verdiens (Abigaille, Lady Macbeth, Aïda) - mais aussi wagnériens (Isolde, Sieglinde, Senta) ! - à l’étranger. De fait, la jeune et plus que prometteuse soprano française (Catherine Hunold avait donc une « rivale » cachée !) affronte ce personnage hors-norme avec la fierté et l’arrogance des grands sopranos wagnériens. Son chant s’aventure jusqu’aux frontières les plus extrêmes, sans jamais rien perdre en termes de flexibilité, de sensibilité ni ne souplesse, et c’est de manière entièrement légitime que le public lui fait un triomphe au moment des saluts. Dernier motif de fierté, France Dariz assurera au final toutes les représentations, alors... Cocorico !»
