"Arlene Randazzo was proved to be an Adele with  the voice for the high coloratura of the Laughing Song and an instinct for low comedy."

New York Times  

"Arlene Randazzo was a memorable Lucia, with a nice sense, not only when spectacular effects were required but of when they were not."

The Hong Kong Standard  

"Quite as lovely to see as to hear, Arlene Randazzo sang and acted Violetta as if she actually found Verdi's tragic heroine something more than animated cardboard. Miss Randazzo imparted grace, a vital though trifle demure winsomeness, and a refinement of emotion to the role which it has always required and too seldom been accorded. And her voice, ah, the voice: it is a lovely, vibrant soprano, with clarity and brightness in the upper reaches, warmth lower down, and smooth pianissimos and easily sustained, elongated phrases. To use an overworked cinematic press agents phrase, Miss Randazzo left no doubt that she WAS Violetta."

The Bridgeport Post

With her bright, agile voice, Miss Randazzo coped well with the opera's severe coloratura demands.. she sang with clarity and fine sensitivity to the long arch of Bellini's melodies.. A distracted Elvira (I Puritani)...  with glimmers of passion and despair.

New York Times

Arlene Randazzo had all the fire and force of personality required for the role of Musetta, and a splendidly virile voice to go with these.

Arlene Randazzo's performance was also outstanding.  She is a high soprano who can negotiate the very high register with crystalline timbre and invested the role of Musetta with formidable vitality.

Beautiful Arlene Randazzo beguiled opera-goers with her gorgeous lyric soprano voice, marvellously undergirded with dramatic flair, and fetchingly feminine ways.  She sparkled in the famous Jewel Song aria, which was exquisitely sung as well as acted.

Arlene Randazzo, as Norina, was another outstanding feature of the opera. She delivered a performance of great charm and energy, especially in her second act aria and in the romantic duo with Henry Ely.
