«madama butterfly: "The title role is demanding, both in the field of vocal art and concentrated scenic charisma. Lona Mohr Villadsen is deeply moving as she portrays the first delight and finally realizes she has been abandoned with a heartbreaking little boy as the deposit of love. She gives voice to the crush and the final desperation."»

REVIEWS

Kristianstadsbladet, July 2, 2017 on Madama Butterfly:
"Breathtaking is also Lona Mohr Villadsen's interpretation of the famous, sad aria of the second act Un bel dì vedremo"...


Svenska Dagbladet, the 28th of July, 2011 (part of review on La Traviata):


"But it is Villadsen that makes the impossible possible. She finds Violettas fragility but also her desire, she convinces just as much in the affirmation of life as in the moment of death. The voice can be imtimate nuanced and later expand." 

Piteå-tidningen, the 18th of June 2014 (part of review on Lieder concert)


“Lona Mohr Villadsen and Helge Kjekshus need about 5 seconds to move me. Lona Mohr Villadsen sings with empathy and emotion. With sincerity and her sentimental voice she gives life to the different songs.”
