"As Polissena, Margo Arsane reveals a beautiful, nuanced and supple soprano that executes some difficult lines extremely well." https://www.musicomh.com/classical/reviews-classical/radamisto-milton-court-theatre-london (2017)
"From Polissena's opening “Sommi Dei”, sung with cool and serene magnificence by the astonishingly gifted Margo Arsane, [...] the musical treats never stop coming. Arsane gives a performance of exceptional sincerity and beauty as Tiridate’s abandoned queen and becomes the emotional centre of the work, using tasteful vibrato like an artist’s palette to shade and accentuate her lines, negotiating switches through the fourth wall and back with the ease of a talented actor." Radamisto, June 2017, Bachtrack: https://bachtrack.com/review-ramster-kelly-moffat-skillett-guildhall-milton-court-london-june-2017 (2017)
"Arsane captured Parasha’s capriciousness and vivacity, and moved easily from the plaintive modality of her folk lament to the decorative exuberance of the role’s coloratura demands." Mavra, November 2016 (Opera Today) (2016)
"Margo Arsane singing beautifully as the young Nannetta" Falstaff, Dec. 2016 (Local Secrets) (2016)
"Margo Arsane's bell-like clarity shone as brightly as her superb French diction." Le Comte Roy, June 2016 (Bachtrack) (2016)
