The soprano Natalie Pérez impresses with a powerful voice, and great ease in her phrasing. Her timbre, modulated according to circumstances, is sometimes rounded, sometimes piercing. In the solemn air “See, even night herself is here”, the soprano shows an intimate voice, soft, with elegant phrasing. On the contrary, in the penultimate aria “Now the night is chas’d away” (Purcell), her voice imposes itself perfectly above the orchestra and the five other singers.
Nicolas Mathieu, Ôlyrix
Natalie Pérez’s Despina is charming and sparkling. Excellent actress, she imitates the doctor and the notary with originality. Her singing has a refreshing lightness. The singer projects a very believable charisma, convincing and efficient.

Her high notes have beautiful assurance, and her vocal line is radiant.
Vincent BOREL, Opéra Magazine
A very accomplished Oberto by the young Natalie Perez, whose last aria expresses all the horror which the sorceress inspires to him now that she shows her real nature: superb vocal progression into horror and inner injury.

Bubikopf, a Natalie Pérez who delights with her luminous and well projected timbre

Natalie Perez impressed with her brilliant voice, especially in the second Act with soft and light sparkling coloraturas, even at the top.
