«As Brünnhilde, Kelly Cae Hogan was a revelation, handling her magnificent, quintessentially Wagnerian part with great power and assurance...»
The Washington Times (U.S.) (2016)

the guardian (UK) (2016)
«Kelly Cae Hogan shines as Elisabeth (Tannhäuser), with beautiful, full timbre and crystal-clear top notes.»
