«ENFIN, GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG TERMINE LE CYCLE SUR UNE NOTE MITIGÉE. ....... AUJOURD’HUI, NOUS AVONS UNE BRÜNNHILDE IDÉALE, ....! MONA SOMM, AUTHENTIQUE TRAGÉDIENNE LYRIQUE, REMPORTE UN VÉRITABLE TRIOMPHE. CAR ELLE EST BRÜNNHILDE, TOUT SIMPLEMENT. LA VOIX EST À LA FOIS FORTE ET MUSICALE, LES INTONATIONS SONT JUSTES, LA PERSONNIFICATION SCÉNIQUE PARFAITEMENT EN SITUATION»
Forum Opera Jean-Marcel Humbert (2016)
«...a superlative new Isolde presented herself: Mona Somm. The Swiss Soprano who has sung herself with passion into the major parts of the dramatic Opera repertoire. With ease she controls all Highs and Lows of the Score, but also convinces with what the Irish Princess motivates. She is a proud and strong Isolde, tall and with a memorable appearance who knows what she wants. Her Sopran is clear and solid on all levels. Impressively she expresses her desire for the ostensibly hated, but deeply desired Tristan, until she is allowed to finally embrace him at the Finale of Act.1»
