“Sinclair’s excellent voice, a bright, lyric mezzo, enlivened the role...met the considerable melismatic challenges with distinction.”

[Bach St. John Passion]  Los Angeles Times

“... rich-voiced, [she] takes charge of every scene she’s in, with a comedienne’s sure touch...altogether a delight ...handles her many vocal demands effectively.”

                              [La Cenerentola] Salt Lake Tribune

“Sinclair simply commands the stage.  An earthbound star, this mezzo distinguished herself with excellent diction and a well- projected voice.”

                        [Eugene Onegin]  Santa Fe Reporter

“One of the great voices in captivity today!”

        [The Record Shelf, on-air KUSC]  Jim Svejda

“...added the finest vocalism this auditor has experienced from her:  a Queen Jezebel overflowing with the kind of hubris required to take on the Almighty, and her own Angel sweetly divine with a touch of the human.”

    [Elijah]   Mark Swed. L.A. Daily News

“...Adelaide Sinclair handled her refrains deftly.”

                                          [Candide] Martin Bernheimer, New York Times

“Sinclair’s rich, fluent aria...proved the concert’s most notable achievement.”

                      [Rossini Stabat Mater]   Los Angeles Times

”...brings both humor and humanity to her wonderful music.”

          [Die Zauberflote]   Boulder, CO  Daily Camera
