'Royal Academy Opera’s dual cast production has (in Cast 1) a fine portrayal from soprano Samantha Quillish... the voice is warm and silky and she’s a fluent, convincing actress' - Bach Track (2019)

'Samantha Quillish and Shengzhi Ren are outstanding as Iolanta and Vaudémont. Quillish’s light, yearning soprano and aura of innocence and confusion are spot on for a role that significantly extended Tchaikovsky’s range of victimised but passionate women, and she and Ren raise the emotional temperature considerably in their music together. ' - Classical Source (2019)

'Samantha Quillish sang Iolanta’s arioso lines with delicacy in the opening garden scene, conveying the princess’s gentleness and purity, but her soprano has both depth and darkness and grew in fervency as Iolanta’s sensuality was awoken, passivity giving way to nascent but intense passion' - Opera Today (2019)

'Samantha Quillish’s Iolanta was heartfelt, moving, possessed both of heft and subtlety' - Seen and heard (2019)
