REQUIEM: VERDI, JAÉN

The soprano Carmen Solís has a powerful voice and stage presence. Her technique, totally refined, converted her into musical, exquisite resonance.Her spianato was splendid. Her fiato was overwhelming with notes left in the air with no intention of ever dissolving. The color of her voice, shifting as intended, generous in the inflections, never lost the point of authenticity, we always knew that she and only she was singing. Extraordinary. The volume that Verdi demanded of sopranos seems to have been made for Carmen Solís who even at the highest point of the performance showed no sign of fatigue.The sound of her lower notes and the discrete brilliance of the high notes made the spectator participate in her situations, enchantments, miseries and then move to despair, consternation of death, paroxysm. Can anyone still doubt about the "humanity" of her performance? Those with ears, listen...

JUAN JOSÉ en Madrid

"Carmen Solís, debuting in the Zarzuela, was precise in a very vocally risky role and showed great confidencein her stage performance..."

La Vanguardia, Concha Barrigós

"Lyric soprano with a very beautiful voice...a dramatic capacity which she relayed by playing the polyhedral side of her character: flirtation, sensuality, ambition, a certain tenderness and a lack of sensitivity towards the overwhelming passion of the two men that cross in her life. An actress and a singer..."

Opera World

"Carmen Solís has the voice of a spinto soprano which Rosa demands, and a beautiful and homogeneous instrumental experience. This young singer, who also adds temperament and musicality at difficult moments, easily overcomes any difficulty."

El Arte de la Fuga, Fernando Fraga

PAGLIACCI (NEDDA) en Santiago de Chile

"Carmen Solís sang a marvellous Nedda, attentive to the details of the score (especially in the famous "Balatella") and won over with her rich theatrical play."

El Mercurio, Juan Antonio Muñoz H.

MADAMA BUTTERFLY en Santiago de Chile

"The soloists were headed by the Spanish soprano Carmen Solís, who fully played the character of Butterfly with all the appropriate female Japanese aptitudes, such as her manner of walking, of sitting, holding her hands, etc. to which was added her beautiful and powerful voice..."

visionescriticas.cl, Gilberto Ponce

MADAMA BUTTERFLY en Gijón

"Carmen Solís, overwhelming, performed a moving Butterfly, gentle but with dramatic and above all, musical strength...especially outstanding in the second and third act where she gave the character all of her tragic profile. She was the great champion of the evening and the audience already burst into applause after her performance of the aria "Un bel vi vedremo"."

El Comercio, Ramón Avello
