REVIEWS

"London-based soprano Victoria Songwei Li as the titular Rusalka was a stunning presence. Her multifaceted acting ability, which navigated from lovesick longing through frustration and confusion to finally grief, was as moving as her singing. The unforgettable Song to the Moon (Mesicku Na Nebi Hlubokem), which came early in the first act, was beautifully rendered in Czech, setting the tone for the dramatics to unfold."

"London-based soprano Victoria Songwei Li’s cameo in the Pie Jesu revealed a voice of rare beauty."
- Bachtrack, 18 September 2022, Fauré Requiem Singapore Symphony Orchestra

"Victoria Songwei Li, in a slinky satin nightgown, delivered a tour de force of a performance, capturing the audience’s attention for a full 40 minutes with no co-performers to play off of. She gave a beautifully sympathetic portrayal of the protagonist in her manic state, alternating sudden shifts between elation and desperation with natural ease. Vocally the voice projected well once it’s warmed up, with clean, crisp diction and a nuanced palette of vocal colours."
- The Mad Scene, 19 August 2022, Poulenc La Voix Humaine New Opera Singapore
