 HOLLYWOOD BOWL, Los Angeles – OTELLO – Luglio 2018
“There could be no real telling about the size of voices (because of the sound system). When Di Giacomo’s mike momentarily failed during the first act, the volume only slightly dropped. But she had the lung power and presence of mind to make up for it, an unscripted, thrilling moment.” M. Swed, Los Angeles Times
“Julianna Di Giacomo’s singing in “Otello” was consistently musical and thrilling, but once again I was struck by the detail and range in characterization. “Salce! Salce! Salce!” she sang, as Verdi specified, “come una voce lontano” in the Willow Song (in fact, very lontano, and beautifully echoed even more faintly by Carolyn Hove’s Cor anglais). “Unjustly killed,” sang di Giacomo from the side, as cast-members burst in on the murder scene. It was a rasp, dramatically appropriate. And it was as if Di Giacomo had found a completely new tone, not previously-employed, in her prayer, “Ave Maria” just before the murder. G. Williams, OperaWire
“Julianna Di Giacomo has an impressive voice that can project dramatic volume with clarity and when necessary turn poetic and lyrical. Her Desdemona captured the tragic innocence and confusion of the character, ending with a soaring rendition of “The Willow Song” and “Ave Maria,” that produced the largest ovation of the performance. J. Farber San Francisco Classical Voice 

 GRAN TEATRE LICEU, Barcellona – ANDREA CHENIER –  Marzo 2018
“Julianna Di Giacomo adroitly lightens her voice for Act I when Maddalena is still a naive young lady; her voice assumes a spinto tone and heft once her character’s life has taken its harrowing turn with the arrival of the revolution. She received a very nice ovation for «La mamma morta». “ Andrea Chenier – Gran Teatre del Liceu – Barcellona Concerto.net. M. Johnson

TEATRO DEL MAGGIO MUSICALE FIORENTINO, Firenze – DON CARLO – Maggio 2017
“Julianna di Giacomo, interprete di Elisabetta di Valois, è un soprano che alterna ruoli lirici e ruoli drammatici; in effetti ha uno strumento ampio e morbido, dal timbro luminoso, non massiccio, ma molto penetrante nel settore acuto; ha affrontato il ruolo con disinvoltura, con un canto ricco di slancio e di colori.” Don Carlo – Fondazione del Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. Gb Opera 5 Maggio 2017

GRAN TEATRE DEL LICEU – BARCELLONA – KATIA KABANOVA (Katia) – Novembre 2018
“Brave the soprano Patricia Racette as Katia, with that great recitative that is the text, without arias. It is difficult to say if [her] acting does not surpass [her] singing. And spectacular public reaction, clapping for six minutes.” M. Chavarria www.lavanguardia.com

“Soprano Patricia Racette in the role of the protagonist who gives title to the opera showed once again what an excellent singing actress she is, perfectly suited to a character like Kátya Kabanová. Her interpretation was superb from beginning to end, and she lived the part with outstanding intensity. Vocally, she was also very good, although her singing today doesn’t quite reach the same level as her acting.” J. M. Irurzun seenandherd-international.com

OPERA PHILADELPHIA FESTIVAL- NE QUITTEZ PAS – Settembre 2018
“Here, for three-quarters of an hour, Opera Philadelphia triumphed — in casting Patricia Racette as the soprano and engaging director James Darrah, and by melding the piece with the cabaret-like immediacy of the Theatre of Living Arts on South Street. When Racette walked out into the middle of the audience singing only a foot or two from your ear, her suffering became yours.” P. Dobrin. Dailynewsphilly.com Settembre 2018

“Soprano Patricia Racette is superb in La Voix Humaine, a work that she makes absolutely her own…she’s in absolute command vocally and dramatically of every nuance. ” D. Fox parterre.com
“She manages a star performance through her remarkable subtlety and vocal grace…thrilling, majestically sung, and ultimately heartbreaking. La voix humaine gives the audience a complete artist at the peak of her power.” C. Kelsall . broadstreetreview.com

TEATRO REAL DI MADRID – DIVA ON DETOUR –  Giugno 2018
Maybe just highlighting a few things: “Delicious evening…not all great voices sound good with the microphone. Fortunately, it was not the case. Racette demonstrated from her entry to the rhythm of George Gershwin’s I Got Rhythm a great ease and an enormous facility to connect with everyone. [A]s the audience did not want to leave, [s]he played a couple of encores, ending with the Maybe this time of the musical Cabaret by John Kander and Fred Ebb, which became popular at the world with the film by Bob Fosse, and where Mrs. Racette became the very Liza Minelli.”
