“Claire de Sévigné stole the show when she entered the stage...her colouratura was breathtaking, with incredible agility in the melismas and high notes that were clear and sailing and sparkling. She's turning heads on world stages and it's not hard to see why.”

“Soprano Claire de Sévigné overcame the vocal and dramatic challenges, delivering a performance of substantial charm.”
- Partette, Li Kashani, October 16 2017
"... de Sévigné’s clear and skilled coloratura soprano brilliantly plays against the staging of the scene... Her commanding stage presence demonstrates the power women possess in the show, and reaffirms the outstanding vocal technique of the soprano roles in Arabella.”
