“Soprano Ailyn Pérez was glowing as the Countess, her “Dove Sono,” sung with dignity as well as sorrow. Her voice was a golden filament that illuminated the nobility of spirit that would later lead the Countess to forgive her husband, the wayward Count.”
– The Pioneer Press, August 2010 [Ravinia Opera Festival]

“She was elegant as the unhappy Countess Almaviva, bringing a bright, ringing tone to the opera’s soulful arias.”
– Chicago Sun-Times, August 2010 [Ravinia Opera Festival]

“A showstopping “Dove sono,” all floating pianissimos and diminuendos and delicate pathos, that roused the sold-out crowd to a long, well-deserved ovation.”
— Chicago Tribune, August 2010 [Ravinia Opera Festival]

“Ailyn Pérez as the Countess has a darker hue to her voice that takes on a gorgeous, creamy quality in her upper register. When their voices blended in the ethereal letter duet, the result was magical.”
