Review

Antonela Barnat is a go-to Donna Elvira. Although she approaches the score with her mezzo timbre, she demonstrates an excellent mastery of her rich voice with beautiful colours… (Don Giovanni)

Mihai Canciovici, ararat.online

 

The mezzo-soprano Antonela Barnat, possessing a soprano-like squillo, interpreted Donna Elvira’s part with unity of the vocal registers, freedom in the coloraturas and, most importantly, carefully chosen dynamics and nuances. (Don Giovanni)

 Costin Popa, Cronici Muzicale

 

….in the role of Venus, mezzo-soprano Antonela Barnat was very convincing in her depiction of the text, with the wagnerian style, phrasing and ‘class’ of a true opera singer, interpreting her role expressively, with finesse and real emotion whilst portraying her character’s feelings.

(Tannhäuser)                                                                                           

Anca Florea, Viata Medicala

[….] young mezzo Antonela Barnat, in her debut in the difficult role of Venus. Her beautiful voice is full, rounded, consistent, solid and serves the musical phrasing with both sensual lyricism and securely sung, strong, ringing high notes. (Tannhäuser)

 Costin Popa, Cronici Muzicale

 

In the role of Suzuki, Antonela Barnat caressed the ear with her rounded, velvety voice and was the perfect fit as an actress: petite, discreet, devoted, with miniature gestures and a floated walk. (M-ma Butterfly)

 Luminita Constantinescu, Revista Muzicala

 

...the mezzo-soprano Antonela Barnat - in the role of Merope - who within the space of a few minutes, managed to illustrate Enescu’s phrasing and style, a masterpiece in miniature... (Enescu’s Oedipe)

  Costin Popa, Cronici Muzicale

 

...Antonela Barnat - in the role of Ofelia - shows strength and versatility, a pure joy to listen to… (contemporary opera In Trup)

 n.a., Actualitatea Muzicala

 

… the mezzo-soprano Antonela Barnat knows how to highlight her warm timbre and the elegance of her musical phrasing with a calm which underlines her secure singing technique. (Dvrorak Requiem)
