“Debuting with the Dallas Opera, soprano Ailyn Pérez as Zerlina is sensuous and captivating. Her lovely lyrical voice is an elegant compliment to Szot’s rich baritone … Pérez possesses acting subtleties in “Verdrai Carino” as she seduces Masetto with her angelic voice and earthly moves.”
– Examiner, October 2010 [Dallas Opera]

“Another standout is Ailyn Pérez’s Zerlina, not the usual peasant naïf but a character and singer of considerable nuance.”
– Dallas Morning News, October 2010 [Dallas Opera]

“The ingénue Zerlina is played with enchanting exuberance by soprano Ailyn Pérez. She is a performer who merges the arts of singing and acting, while drawing every eye in the audience.”
– SMU Daily Campus, October 2010 [Dallas Opera]

“Soprano Aliyn Pérez was an utter delight in the role of Zerlina, the peasant girl Don Giovanni tries to seduce on her wedding day. Her performance almost steals the show from Rutter and Jarman. Evidently the audience agreed, as “Bravas!” echoed through the hall when Perez took her curtain call.”
– Sulphur Springs News-Telegram, October 2010 [Dallas Opera]

“Fabulous soprano Ailyn Pérez, whose sweet, soaring voice made for one of the most convincing interpretations of the country bride Zerlina that I have had the pleasure of seeing. Let us hope that we’ll be hearing more of her.”
