"Sarah Greenspan brought stamina and a big voice to the role of Leonora/Fidelio, one of the more challenging of the soprano repertory."- Washington Post
"Sarah Greenspan’s Carmen showed promise... Her low and high notes resonated beautifully.... She gave herself completely to the role, inhabiting the right feistiness and exuding the right amount of sexuality" - The Millbrook Independent
"When Sarah sings the beautiful “By the light of the moon,” it’s a small appetizer of her powerful, clear, and gorgeous singing yet to come. Sarah is not just a wonderful singer – she’s a terrific actress."
- Joel Markowitz
"high points in the upper-register pianissimo"
- The DCist
"When Greenspan mourns the loss of trust in her marriage, a beautiful sorrow that transcends the text finds its true home in Oberhauser’s harrowing melodies and reaches the audience. Empathy is felt. The eyes well up. These are the emotionally loaded moments that are only achievable through opera, and fortunately for us, this production is full of them."
- DC Theater Scene
