…the American soprano has without a doubt one of the most impressive voices in the opera world. The timbre, of marmoreal beauty, is striking, the projection telluric...
The American soprano left came out and with note: the voice is beautiful, the phrasing immaculate and the coloring is impeccable.

...her Leonora stood out for its perfect diction, a central register of great beauty and warmth, and well-planned and well-timed high notes...without a doubt she is a level artist, of exquisite musicality and preciousness in the interpretation who is carving out an impressive career and who especially triumphed in the heartfelt aria of the fourth act «D'amor sull'ali rosee'.
With a darkly colored enameled instrument that is homogeneous and generous, it makes for a pleasant Leonora...the great aria "D'amor sull'ali rosee" showed the vocal nobility of the singer, the elegance of the phrasing, the technical security and the appropriate expression.
Rachel Willis-Sorensen's role debut is extremely impressive, as the standing ovation at the end proves: the voice is opulent, generous and the vocal line very expressive. It is moreover inadequate to say that she is expressive, so much could be said about her inexhaustible capacity to give sense and definition to each word, to give musicality to each phrase, and emotion in such a straightforward manner...
As Violetta, Rachel Willis-Sørensen is magnificent. She is not only very beautiful, but her vocal means are such (in all registers, possessing at will all the technical demands this overwhelming role requires) that they seem to surpass the dimensions of the auditorium - with its excellent acoustics.
