International Reviews

“Her voice is ample for this repertoire, she could become a worthy addition to the list of international spinto sopranos”

Opera News, New York


“Elementar event at this concert was the interpretation of Pace, pace from Verdi’s Forza del Destino by Teresa Pérez-Frangie.”

Wiener Zeitung, Vienna, Austria



“True Wagner sound and feel.”

Musical Journal, U.S.A.



“On this evening we also heard -non less surprising- the interpretation of Amelia by Teresa Pérez-Frangie, who comes from the Dominican Republic but, like the others, is also at home on European stages. With an accurately guided and smoothly-flowing, full of glowing dark color, round and luminous powerful voice – even in the most difficult and extreme passages- she made music full of a passionate temperament. All shades of this ardent but also intimate woman figure were best enhanced by her.”
