"There are formidable Glyndebourne debuts here too, [including] a basso profundo of a Land Army Mistress Quickly in the stentorian yet agile and nuanced singing of Susanne Resmark."  (Hilary Finch, The Times, May 2013)

"For the first time, Resmark has taken on a dramatic soprano role. She sang the part quite naturally, with a strong high register without shrillness or wobble, a voice capable of rising above the full choir and orchestra in the Easter refrain." (Cavalleria Rusticana, Det Kongelige Theater - ConcertoNet, December 2011)

"The whole cast was strong, including Susanne Resmark, a warm, dark-hued Swedish mezzo-soprano, in her Met debut as Ragonde." (Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times, March 2011)

"Voices of Wagnerian proportions are required in the later scenes – and Susanne Resmark does not fail to hurl her voice over the orchestra pit as if the notes were fiery comets falling on the Earth." (Classical.net)
