KEREN MOTSERI | SOPRANO
"Beautiful is the interaction between the tape and the beautiful soprano Keren Motseri, who knows how to give the melodies an emotion beyond the notes alone." Het Parool

Keren Motseri ... was the vocal star of the evening
La Vie Parisienne, Offenbach, Trouw
How breathtakingly beautifully, and how slowly also, soprano Keren Motseri died as Euridice
Orfeo by Rossi, Utrechts Nieuwsblad
The sopranos Nicola Wemyss as Orfeo and Keren Motseri as Euridice were outright top notch protagonists. Not only were their voices brilliant, they were perfectly cast. Motseri with her bright light soprano was the perfect innocent Euridice […] Euridice’s lament, when she realizes she will die without Orfeo at her side, is very touching
Orfeo by Rossi, Eindhovens Dagblad
