Ariadne auf Naxos - Broomhill Festival (England)

“Broomhill was lucky to have Rachel Bersier from New York as Ariadne, for this is an astonishing talent. I have never heard a young singer so obviously gifted for roles like Brunnhilde and Isolde, with an attack and timbre like Varnay's of Nilsson's, and very few technical flaws or insecurities. A glorious sound, which made a spell-binding effect.” -- Tom Sutcliffe

Donna Anna - Don Giovanni - Virginia Opera

“Among the three women, Bersier stood out with a strong, clear soprano voice that had power but little harshness.” -- David Nicholson

Donna Anna - Don Giovanni - Virginia Opera

“Soprano Rachel Bersier delighted as Donna Anna.” -- John Shulson

Matilda - Silvano (Mascagni) - Carnegie Hall

"Rachel Bersier was the sturdy Matilda"

-- Bernard Holland
