«"Sul lato musicale abbiamo due vincitori assoluti. La prima, Irena Parlov, cesella una Carmen che non può che risultare affascinante e simpatica; è padrona della scena e ha molto lavorato su gestualità e posture che risultano naturali ma curate; la voce ha un grande volume e un bel timbro da mezzosoprano che si schiarisce molto negli acuti generosi ma non ostentati.»
CORRADO CANULLI (2018)
