at the Chateau de Versailles 2019
“...showed total command musically and dramatically and a lovely, pliant voice one would seek out again.”
(Opera Magazine - UK)
"Her vocal performance is as committed
as the inexorable fate that she powerfully incarnates."
"Teresa Perrotta, whose big, sunny soprano belied the frequent hangdog presentation of this role. Ms. Perrotta suffered her indignities with secure, arching lines and melodiously amorous pleading."
"Of the solid quartet of Athenian
lovers, the mellow soprano of
Teresa Perrotta (Helena) stood out."

"Teresa Perrotta conveyed the queen’s
wistful sadness in a sweet, rich voice
reminiscent of Teresa Stratas,
the original Marie Antoinette."
