FIORDILIGI, COSI FAN TUTTE, MOZART

AVA, March 2019

“a generously gifted artist… Her substantial, vibrant soprano, even throughout a wide range, includes a powerful chest voice, but also has a special sense of loft in the upper range. De Monteil was superbly assured, matching the best exponents I’ve heard live, including Carol Vaness and Renée Fleming future.” parterre.com

ARIADNE, ARIADNE AUF NAXOS, Richard STRAUSS

AVA, February 2018

“…her beautifully rounded, voluminous soprano made some gorgeous sounds, especially launching quiet, high-lying phrases.” phillymag.com “Claire de Monteil sings Ariadne with powerful resonance and appealing morbidezza“ bsrserver.com

SIMONE, LES MOUSQUETAIRES AU COUVENT, VARNET

OPERA GRAND AVIGNON, December 2017

“She has a very large voice and sings musically.” dcmetrotheaterarts.com “what Claire de Monteil (Leonora) accomplished with determination and vibrato still ran up against memories of floated upper-register soprano tones in certain passages.” philly.com
