"Elettra is jealous of Ilia, who charms the heart of Idamante. No wonder, as Juanita Lascarro combines girlish charm with her fine Mozart coloratura." (Opernetz, March 2013)
"Lascarro is physically and vocally perfect for the role [Marguerite]. You can imagine exactly why a depressive 50-something male would go off the rails in pursuit." (Graham Rickson, The Arts Desk, on Opera North's production of Gounod’s Faust, October 2012)
“Juanita Lascarro in the title role [Poppea] was absolutely convincing both vocally and dramatically.” (Kurier, January 2010)
