KRITIKEN
 
Ópera Las Palmas - L'elisir d'amore – GIANNETTA
There was a very young cast, almost all in their twenties, who vocally and scenically performed their roles without any problems, bringing a naturalness and freshness not always within the reach of more veteran singers. [...] The Canarian Tania Lorenzo was an impeccable Giannetta.
Ritmo, Juan Francisco Román Rodríguez

Tania Lorenzo, a young local voice, was equally successful in all aspects.

Festival Internacional de Música de Canarias - Réquiem, Fauré
The "Requiem" of peace and resurrection. The beautiful voice and sensitivity of the Canarian soprano Tania Lorenzo shone through.

The Requiem was enhanced by the successful participation of the soloists. Tania Lorenzo admirably resolved the Pie Jesu.

Semperoper Dresden - Carmen - FRASQUITA
Even the two minor characters of Frasquita (Tania Lorenzo) and Mercedes (Stepanka Pucalkova) definitely stole the show from him. They have only short entrances, but they made the most of them. Both gave a very solid, very strong performance and contributed a great part to the success of the evening.

Semperoper Dresden- Die verkaufte Braut - ESMERALDA
Folk rhythms and changing times ina German version of Smetana's Bartered Bride Duped by Marie and laughed at by everyone, he at least finds a possible future with the delightfully sparky Esmeralda of Tania Lorenzo.

Semperoper Dresden- Tannhäuser - HIRTE
Alongside the first-class Wagner singers previously mentioned, Tania Lorenzo, her soprano voice clear and bell-like, made a strong impression in the smaller role of young shepherd.

Semperoper Dresden- Carmen - FRASQUITA
Tania Lorenzo as Frasquita and Grace Durham as Mercédès filled their roles with life, both vocally and with their natural play.

Semperoper Dresden - Das Rätsel der gestohlenen Stimmen
Voices must not be stolen [...] But if you have an opera to be published with a ten-year-old girl as the main character, then it is an absolute stroke of luck to have a young ensemble with a singer-actress like the Spanish singer Tania Lorenzo at your disposal. She does indeed look girlish, but has such an enchanting soprano that this part seems to be written all over her body and throat. On top of that she can smile winningly. [...]
