“Ms. Pérez, singing with melting sound and affecting vulnerability, made an endearing Mimì, a sensual young woman not afraid to let go when feelings of romantic longing welled up at the first sight of Rodolfo.”

Anthony Tommasini – The New York Times

“Ailyn Pérez has a tangy lyric soprano with a touch of spinto edge on the top, providing dramatic chills with Mimi’s variously angry and helpless outbursts in the third act.”
