REVIEWS
 
Teatro Regio Torino – Fidelio - MARZELLINA
"...Su tutti trionfava Talia Or."
Il Sole 24 Ore
Accademia di Santa Cecilia Roma - Das Rheingold -WOGLINDE
".. almost every singer has problems with the hall acoustics. It was her self-confident smile that proved Talia Or as Woglinde had the hang of it. With fine diction she presented her silvery shining soprano voice in a most sovereign and focused way. No other member of the cast was so convincing. "
Das Opernglas
Klosterneuburg - Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor – FRAU FLUTH
"With her portrayal of Ms Fluth, Talia Or not only textually pulled all strings. With her noble soprano voice she also vocally dominated the scene. "
