La Boheme at Teatro de la Maestranza, Seville

(...) Diferente timbre es el que ofreció la soprano rumana Anita Hartig en su papel de Mimí, que tuvo una impronta más dramática en los dos primeros actos para ir dulcificándose en el tercero y más en el cuarto, lo que favoreció que su interpretación fuera creciendo en frescura y...

Faust at Theatre du Capitole de Toulouse

(...) Challenge relevé haut la main par Anita Hartig, pensionnaire des plus grandes scènes de la planète (New York, Vienne, MilanLondres, Paris, etc.). Cette cantatrice déploie un soprano de grand lyrique au timbre magnifiquement charnu et lumineux, somptueusement conduit au travers d’une ligne de chant dans laquelle la virtuosité le...

Turandot at the Vienna State Opera

(...) Anita Hartig singt eine Liù, die Wünsche kaum offen lässt. Der Klang gleicht glasklarem Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir, das Vibrato ist kostbar. Hartig hat den Ton für die Seelenoffenbarung, der Klangkontur ist meist glasklar. Die Höhe vibriert geheimnisvoll und lässt eine delikate Schärfe mitschwingen. Dabei ist Hartigs „Signore, ascolta“ durchaus...

Le Nozze di Figaro at the Metropolitan Opera

[...] The character’s music goes on forever, and, undaunted, the Romanian soprano sustained power and charm, even elegance, virtually without pause. In a staging that forces the action forward to the 1930s (and, in the process makes the inherent droit de seigneur plotting seem a bit odd), she modelled a...

Turandot at the Meropolitan Opera

[...] It was Monday’s Liù, though, who won the audience’s most ecstatically proclaimed affections. This is the second Puccini role for Anita Hartig at the Met, and she was even more impressive here than she had been in her debut as Mimì two seasons ago. From her very first moments,...

La Boheme at Semperoper Dresden

[...] Das Augenmerk richtete sich aber insbesondere auf Anita Hartig als Mimi, die mit dieser, ihrer bevorzugten, Partie Maßstäbe setzte. Sie spielte nicht vordergründig, sondern drückte alles mit ihrem Gesang aus. Sie war einfach die Mimi mit ihrer klangschönen, weichen, geschmeidigen und sehr ausdrucksvollen Stimme, die in der Höhe noch...

Le Nozze di Figaro at the Royal Opera House

[...] Anita Hartig’s gentle, sweetly sung Susanna (what a lovely purity of sound she finds for her nocturnal aria in the garden) is likely to have her hands full married to a Figaro like this. [...] Played with humanity and warmth, this production of Figaro is invariably a pleasure to...

La Traviata at Liceu Barcelona

[...] Pero la mayor sensación la causó la joven soprano Anita Hartig en un doble debut, era su primera Violetta, y era su primera aparición en el Liceu de Barcelona, un reto que superó cosechando un gran y merecidísimo éxito. [...] Una función llena de alicientes que cumplió con las expectativas y...

Le Nozze di Figaro at the Bayerische Staatsoper

[...] Anita Hartig’s Susanna ... clearly cares very much for Figaro, Cherubino and the Countess, and she takes gleeful pride in her schemes to foil the Count’s advances. Hartig is the quintessential soubrette, with a light, pure soprano that carries well. She uses its sweetness and range of volumes and textures...

Carmen at the Metropolitan Opera

[...] Anita Hartig’s Micaëla is a breath of fresh air in the dark drama, and her clear and beautiful soprano with a hint of warmth is a perfect instrument for an innocent but determined peasant girl. Her Act III aria combined her fear and hope with elegant phrasing and poignant high...

La Boheme, Vienna State Opera

(...) Anita Hartig brings a limpid, unaffected sweetness to Mimi - her voice responding with ease in all her scenes. Both her first and third act arias were immaculately constructed, and her "farewell" subtly understated - and as such, all the more affecting. The tone fills out nicely above the...

La Boheme, Teatro alla Scala, Milan

La giovane Mimi, Anita Hartig, 29 anni rumena, un timbro cristallino, una voce vibrante di passione decisamente interessante che subito conquista il pubblico. La musica, che incanta e catalizza, è la protagonista, ed è diretta dal giovane e talentuoso Daniele Rustioni che ha condotto con maturità assoluta e maestria quest’opera...
