    "Sumegi was also a touching and impressive Leonora….."

    "….she is an artist, and her portrayal both musically and dramatically was cumulative, from the beautiful Tacea la notte placida of Act I, to the tragically shadowed D´amor sull´ali rosee of Act IV."

  • Toronto Star - April 1, 2005

    “Eszter Sümegi´s Leonora was even more impressive than her previous Mimi and Tosca for the company, creamy smooth and clear in tone and comfortable with Verdi´s soaring phrases. She more than justified the restoration of the often cut aria following the tower duet.”

    “Sumegi´s Aida was a brilliantly sung and acted interpretation, that made terrific use of her finely focused low notes.”
