Teatro Cervantes Malaga - Fidelio - MARZELLINE
This Fidelio had a first class cast , of which the soprano Beatriz Díaz was particularly outstanding as Marzelline, approaching this difficult composition with a well-adjusted, effective and splendid interpretation. She also is a superb actress, shining as the perfect arche-type of Marzelline, both fragile and courageous, culminating in her emotional outburst Nichts, mein Florestan!, which was absolutely brilliant.

The Marzelline of Beatriz Díaz, who was a great Despina two years ago, also became a warm welcome. The Asturian sang the character with a voice more lyrical than light, particularly bright in the high registers and with excellent dramatic skills. She used each appearance to draw full attention, especially in the initial duet and the wonderful quartet that followed.

Also back at the Cervantes Theatre was the Asturian soprano Beatriz Díaz as Marzelline, daughter of Rocco. …/… in this German debut role the Asturian artist proved as usual to be just perfect in everything: a voice full of nuances with sufficient projection, even in the spoken parts, also in the bass register she maintained impeccable heights. Besides, her stage presence filled each of her appearances (impeccable the second scene with Rocco)…

Teatro Cervantes Malaga – Cosi fan tutte - DESPINA
His companion in the intrigues was the Asturian Beatriz Díaz, who apparently enjoyed her play, which perfectly suits the role of Despina and has the ideal voice for the character.

Teatro La Fenice – La Bohème - MUSETTA
The artist, who already knew great success as Adina in La Fenice, presented a superb interpretation of the sensual Musetta.

Teatro Campoamor de Oviedo– l’elisire d’amore – ADINA
Really admirable was Beatriz Díaz. Here is a very talented soprano, who inspite her youth, has already made in interesting career- let’s not forget she has won the Francisco Viñas Singing Competition with an overwhelming majority and she was chosen by Riccardo Muti himself. .. She has a beautiful, absolutely lyrical, rich and agreeable voice. Her Adina was a real jewel. Díaz performed the role as if she intended to show her entire repertoire of vocal possibilities. The Asturian soprano triumphed in Campoamor in a magnificent leading role.
