New York Times

“But perhaps the most vivid portrayal of the evening was that of the mezzo-soprano Kelsey Robertson as Fire, with a verisimilitude achieved largely through the quality of her singing. In long stretches of coloratura, especially, her legato, while smooth, retained remarkable clarity of pitch and evenness of rhythm, flickering like a lambent flame.”
-James R. Oestreich-

New York Classical Review

“Robertson’s fierce, smoky mezzo was striking, and she showed off ferocious coloratura in El Fuego’s blazing arias.”
-Eric C. Simpson-

Opera Wire

“Fire, (Kelsey Robertson) was an appropriately feisty coloratura. Her performance brought out the musical similarities between the fire from the fireplace, Le feu, from Maurice Ravel’s “L’enfant et les sortilèges” and this Fire (El Fuego).”
-Gregory Moomjy-

Maryland Theatre Guide

“Kelsey Robertson’s Suzuki was one of the most entertaining highlights of the evening.  Her absolutely superb vocalizations in the supporting role were lovely to hear. Just as impressive were Ms. Robertson’s acting chops – even if she were not possessed of that elegant larynx – would be enough to warrant a career on any stage.
-Timoth David Copney-
