“Alexandra Stenson easily made the opera all about Tatyana, marvellous in the Letter Scene and seriously powerful as she cut Onegin out of her life.” Peter Reed, Opera Magazine (2018)

“Alexandra has a rich and ample soprano voice, with outstanding potential for a solo operatic career.” Lada Valešová, Vocal Coach, Royal Opera House, GSMD. (2017)

“Alexandra has a voice of exceptional quality and uses it with great attention to style, vocal quality and communication of the text in everything she sings.” Malcolm Martineau, International Accompanist. (2016)

“Alexandra brought sophistication to every performance and demonstrated a mature vocal ability across the range of repertoire presented. She’s equally at home among song repertoire and opera and her performance in the evening concerts delighted the audience of peers, tutors and accompanists alike.” Steven Phillips, Chorus Manager, Opera North. (2015)
