Reviews

"Die Oper "Salome" steht und fällt mit der Besetzung der Titelpartie... Susanne Serfling sieht aus wie ein junges Mädchen, hat den nötigen Sexappeal, sie spielt kompromisslos intensiv und sie hat stimmlich das Zeug zu einer Hochdramatischen. Das kommt nicht oft zusammen... Ich habe lange keine so überzeugende Salome-Interpretin erlebt, auch an bedeutenden Opernhäusern nicht..."
D.D.Scholz
MDR Kultur
Susanne Serfling setzt gläserne Spitzentöne, ...schaltet mit Biss blitzschnell um auf bravourös attackierende Ausbrüche. Ihre Salome ist eine todsicher Strategin, die alle Probleme mit Sexappeal enthebelt und nichts verloren hat außer sich selbst."
