“The alluring Russian-American soprano Yulia Van Doren​

stole the show....Her luscious voice has a pure, shining high extension, and she sailed through the coloratura leaps, plunges and flourishes with uncanny ease.”

- Chicago Tribune

"This year’s big revelation is young American soprano Yulia

Van Doren... a ravishing lyric voice and an ease with vocal ornamentation that turned her into an enchanted songbird."

- Toronto Star

"...a beguilingly vivacious presence and, even better, a

first-class musician, with the instincts and technique to ​

bring Handel's treacherously intricate music to life."​

- Opera News

"...the perfect lyric soprano voice."

- Cincinnati Inquirer

"...a voice no less than spectacularly beautiful...

- Seen and Heard International

"Van Doren sang gloriously, with subtle inflection, dynamic sensitivity and spunky charm...”

- Financial Times

"A star-to-be... a spring-water timbre, expert decoration and fabulous staccatos, and a telling way with text."

- Opera Magazine (UK)

"One tends not to realize how often singers bring the repertoire along for the ride until hearing someone like Van Doren, who is startlingly subservient to the music at hand, inhabiting it so completely that she gives the illusion of barely thinking about her voice. Never does one sense a separation between the written vocal line and the voice singing it."

- Philadelphia Inquirer

"...a hugely appealing, obviously important talent..."

- Philadelphia Inquirer

​ “...Russian-American soprano Yulia Van Doren brought charm   and a bell-like purity to her arias...”
