"Ms. Netrebko put everything on the line during the great `letter scene' Her distinctive sound, warm and sumptuous with a dusky cast, and her raw intensity combined to convey the longing and fear embedded in every phrase." —New York Times
"The charismatic baritone Peter Mattei sounded lustrous as the title character, vividly conveying Onegin's transformation from the aloof, coldhearted bachelor who patronizingly rejects Tatiana to the heartbroken man who realizes, too late, that he loves her." —New York Times
"Netrebko, equally lush vocally and theatrically, seems bigger than life onstage." —Financial Times
"One of the opera world's current handful of true box office stars, [Netrebko] returned to the role of Tatiana for the first time here since 2013. Judging by the public's roaring ovation at her curtain call, it's been way too long a wait Tatiana has developed into one of Netrebko's very best roles, rich in light and shade of acting detail and showing off a warm, calm radiance in the voice." —New York Observer
"Netrebko, singing at the top of her power, is a natural for the role of Tatiana Robin Ticciati conducted the excellent Met Orchestra in an inspired reading of the score A poignant and anguished account of lost love." —Huffington Post
