Financial Times

 

“Music performed by Carol Garcia explains the power of music. The artist also performed the roles of Messenger and Hope demonstarting a large and colourful voice. We admire her care with text with well structured consonants and vowels, as well as beautiful management of breath.”

Opéra Forum

 

"In the triple role of Music, Messenger and Hope, Carol Garcia again shows her affinity for Baroque Music, carefully differentiating her different characters and attentive to the text..."

Donna Elvira: Don Giovanni / Opéra Eclaté

“Carol Garcia is a very beautiful Elvira, jealous and vindictive…”

Rosina: Il barbiere di Siviglia / Opéra de Montréal

 

“The superb Rosina of Carol Garcia is vocally dazzling and creates a character both sparkling and sensitive.”

L’Avant-Scène Opéra

 

"The visually convincing Rosina of mezzo-soprano Carol Garcia is without doubt the revelation of the evening. Possessed of a perfect Rossini voice, with well supported low notes, she portrayed with total conviction the rebellious character of Lindoro / Almaviva's amorous intended."

ResMusica

 

Rosina: Il barbiere di Siviglia / Opéra national de Bordeaux

“…Carol Garcia a true coloratura, with stylish Rossini embellishments, rich low notes, shining high notes, and a most graceful characterisation…”

Angelina: La cenerentola / Opéra de Tours

"As for the angelic Angelina of Carol Garcia, her voice cast its spell from the low notes to the bloom of the high ones, a voice of crystalline clarity cascading through the music. Along with the prince, the whole adoring audience can only say. "What a voice! What a heavenly face."

La Nouvelle République

 

“Carol Garcia conquered the audience from her first 'Una volta' with a full bodied timbre, flexible and delicate on high, her vocalism impeccably executed. Stripping away the usual acting conventions, she gave us a character full of sweet melancholy, and made a true romantic heroine of Angelina."

Angelina: La cenerentola / Palau de Congressos de Santa Eulàlia de Ibiza

“As Cenerentola, Carol Garcia not only thrilled but her powerful voice, but convinced with her characterisation. Dignified, serene and contained, she was the perfect counterpoint to the wicked stepsisters.”

El Diario de Ibiza

 

Zulma: L’Italiana in Algeri / Opéra de Marseille

“Carol Garcia makes a splendid Zulma…”

ConcertoNet

 

“Eduarda Melo and Carol Garcia had the playing skills required for Elvira and Zulma, amusing but also beautifully musical.”

Forum Opéra

 

Selinda: Il Farnace / Opéra national du Rhin

“The Catalan mezzo Carol Garcia made a strong impression on the audience with her dark, resonant tone, particularly in the spectacular “Ti vantasti mio guerriero.””

ClassiqueInfo

 

“Carol Garcia is a gracious and touching Selinda.”

ConcertoClassic.com

 

“Carol Garcia makes a charmingly flighty Selinda, especially in her final aria, “Ti vantasti mio guerriro” with clean and accurate coloratura.”

OMM

 

“As Selinda, young mezzo Carol Garcia held her own…Her voice has an attractive tone, and she offered some enticing decorations and good coloratura.”

Opera Britannia

 

“The Selinda of Carol Garcia finishes with an electrifying “Ti vantasti mio guerriero”, displaying coloratura of a pearly perfection and speed reminiscent of Bartoli.”

ResMusica

 

“The vampish sister Selinda is persuasively performed by Carol Garcia, her coloratura spiralling into the air.”

Selinda: Il Farnace / Opéra Royal de Versailles

“The fourth contender was a young Spanish mezzo, Carol Garcia. This young lady was convincingly coquettish with both of her suitors and offered the audience excellent coloratura, especially in “Ti vantasti mio guerriero.”
