About the role of Vivaldi’s Juditha Triumphans at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées

"Dara Savinova en Ozias s’illustre dans l’art consommé de la demi-teinte par une voix chaude et cuivrée restituant à la perfection toute la dimension et la dignité du Grand Prêtre."

About the role of Nancy in Martha at Landestheater Detmold

"Dara Savinova sang und spielte die Vertraute Nancy mit großer Spielfreude und beeindruckender Stimme. So muss eine „Nancy“ in Martha im Idealfall klingen! Frau Savinova hält da jeden Vergleich stand. Für mich die überzeugendste gesangliche Leistung des Abends. Bravo!"
