«Natalie Pérez impresses with a powerful voice, and great ease in her phrasing. Her timbre, modulated according to circumstances, is sometimes rounded, sometimes piercing. In the solemn air "See, even night herself is here", the soprano shows an intimate voice, soft, with elegant phrasing. On the contrary, in the penultimate aria "Now the night is chas'd away" (Purcell), her voice imposes itself perfectly above the orchestra and the five other singers.»
NICOLAS MATHIEU, ÔLYRIX (2018)
«Natalie Pérez's Despina is charming and sparkling. Excellent actress, she imitates the doctor and the notary with originality. Her singing has a refreshing lightness. The singer projects a very believable charisma, convincing and efficient.»
SABINO PENA ARCIA, CLASSIQUENEWS.COM (2018)
«Her high notes have beautiful assurance, and her vocal line is radiant.»
VINCENT BOREL, OPÉRA MAGAZINE (2018)
