Schumann Portal
Semperoper Dresden – Genoveva - MARGARETHA
Vocally, the sublime trio was furiously and maliciously dark completed by Marie Seidler’s dodgy wet nurse Margaretha. The young mezzo soprano enthralled with a rich vocal range of two and a half octaves with powerful depths and a crystal-clear timbre.
Der Opernfreund
...and an excellent soloist ensemble with Carolyn Sampson and Marie Seidler... Marie Seidler as the scheming wet nurse has the most interesting part, of which she makes thoroughly use with her flaming mezzo soprano voice,…

On the other side Marie Seidler as the wicked wet nurse, letting flow dark undertones into her mezzo voice.

Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern – Titus - SEXTUS
Especially worth mentioning here are above all Marie Seidler as Sextus and D.K. as Titus. The first-mentioned portrayed the trousers role with a clear, powerful and smooth mezzo soprano voice; I would definitively like to hear more from her.
