«Daniela Barcellona is a sincere Arsace... Her voice overflows with love... Elder keeps things moving along, while giving space for Barcellona to relish the text, to make velvety flights through her melodic range and to demonstrate her command of the coloratura.» ( #OperaToday) «It's taken two years, but Opera Rara's five-star recording of Rossini's epic Babylonian opera Semiramide is released at last... Now it's possible to listen again to Albina Shagimuratova in the hugely challenging title role and Daniela Barcellona as the warrior Arsace, both singers at the top of their game.» (@guardian) «Daniela Barcellona, our finest contemporary Arsace, is superb.» ( #Gramophone) «Mezzo Daniela Barcellona is in top form as Arsace.» (@sundayxpress) ❤Wonderful reviews for #Semiramide by @operarara2364 this week!
