”Essi Luttinen is one of our best mezzo-sopranos at the moment with a superb sense of drama, and she complements her rich vocal expression with evocative facial expressions and gestures.”

Huvudstadsbladet/Mats Liljeroos

 

“The absolute star among the soloists was Essi Luttinen as Dorabella. She identifies with her sensuous so completely that she does not really need to act. Her vocal sound is beautiful and impressive.

Rondo Classica/ Harri Kuusisaari

 

“Mezzo-soprano Essi Luttinen, who sang the role of Dorabella, did so with such a confidence, skill and musical insight that she could easily perform the role on any opera stage of the world. Her interpretation was absolutely mesmerising.
