The Spanish soprano completes the duo with wonderful freshness and impressive reserves up to the highest registers. Moreover, the petite Lorenzo has the habitus that has already earned her accolades in this role in tge Lucerne Theatre’s "Rosenkavalier" and "Revues des Folies": With her effervescence, her facial expressions, her acting, she leaves young roles truly "young". A rarity in such demanding roles.
Anzeiger Luzern
Tania Lorenzo Castro's bright soprano voice is refreshing, and she always has a broad smile on her face. The way she sings and plays Gretel as a cheerful girl who loves to dance is simply captivating [...] How well the two ensemble members know each other by now is also shown by their informal, spontaneous acting as siblings.
The joyfully bubbly Gretel (Tania Lorenzo Castro). They all fill the role with vigor and spirit.

Internationales Bachfestival Las Palmas – THEODORA
The cast of international singers was very well chosen. The great canary Tania Lorenzo was in charge of the title role. A lyric-light soprano of pleasing color, homogeneous throughout her tessitura, even in the uncomfortable basses that Händel assigns her, she sang with cleanliness, expressiveness and deliberate phrasing. With restrained ornamentation, she was an exemplary Theodora.
Tania Lorenzo Castro, very committed, enjoyed and made us enjoy. With the score practically from memory (something unusual in oratorios interpreted by singers with a thick professional agenda such as hers), the soprano from Gran Canaria dramatized the text and the music in this version, which had no staging, and her large and liquid voice in the mids and treble was well calibrated in technique and style, which showed great knowledge of the baroque style. The prominence of this role, which gives its name to the work, was at the height of its interpretation.

Tania Lorenzo Castro gives Faninal's daughter Sophie with a clear, youthfully fresh soprano and her stage presence stands out from the rest of the ensemble.
Peter Hagemann
Tania Lorenzo sings and plays this part stunningly: witty, cheeky, clear as a bell in her intonation, and yet also delicately strung.
However, with the wonderfully homogeneous female trio of Eyrún Unnarsdótir, Solenn' Lavanant Linke and Tanio Lorenzo Castro at her side, she has a credible, stunningly youthful singer-actresses from her own ensemble at her disposal that would do credit to any state opera. Which is a sensation because all 3 have their role debut here, after already having inspired in 2021 on stage as Countess, Cherubino and Susanna in Mozart’s “Figaro”. Merely due these three singers , a trip to Lucerne a trip to Lucerne is worthwhile.
