“Ailyn Pérez, playing a compromised but determined Donna Anna, is a thrilling soprano who has the power and brilliance to bring off an incisive “Or sai chi l’onore””

Opera News

“Ailyn Pérez projects passion as Donna Anna—especially in her empowering aria “Or sai chi l’onore”—and her magnetic stage presence is fiery…”

Hannah Che, Houstonia

“Ailyn Pérez sang Donna Anna with considerable gleam and thrust.”

Opera Magazine

“Pérez is magnificent, with thrilling projection, flawless technique, and volcanic presence.”

Houston Press

“…Pérez’s luminous, vibrant singing–including a flourish that touched high D–made the aria blaze. Pérez spun out her parts of the opera’s ensembles with a silky finesse that captured the pathos of Anna’s soul-searching. And the eloquence she gave Anna’s second aria, “Non mi dir,” made it virtually another climax for the opera. Pérez’s glowing, long-breathed singing filled the lyricism with urgency; she gave the coloratura finish such flow and glow that it radiated Anna’s desperation for inner peace.”
