«"The soprano Oxana Arkaeva was a stroke of luck! Fulminant is her interpretation of the Iphigénie, arriving half an hour before the concert at the theatre (New Opera Moscow), she sang highly professional, perfectly rehearsed, in excellent French with all conceivable and desirable colour and dynamic nuances!".»
Wolfgang Scheidt, CONDUCTOR, VIENNA (2017)
«"After 20 years experience involved both on and off stage with concert and opera throughout Europe and the world, Ms. Arkaeva comes across as having a charming and engaging personality in addition to beeing a stunning and gracious performer. Her unique onstage artistry combines the most beautiful soprano voice with extraordinary acting skills, natural beauty and poise. With a repertoire that goes from Porter to Rachmaninoff, as well as Mozart, Wagner, Strauss, Verdi and Puccini, Oxana Arkaeva is a Diva that delivers, no matter the occasion".»
BRIAN HUNTER, PRESIDENT OF THE MUSICIANS CLUB OF NEW YORK (2017)
«“Oxana Arkaeva surely possesses the bite and attack that is required for this parts, singing at the same time with warm legato and high phrasing culture. The Ukrainian born soprano touched in the lyrical moments, especially in the aria "Anch'io dischiuso un giorno" with delicate piani and diminuendi and dominated the ensembles with luminous vocal flare … and in the poignantly-sung final death scene.”»
