Ópera Actual

"At his side, María José Siri proves worthy of him [Placido Domingo]. The Uruguayan-born soprano has to her credit a warm tone and a powerful voice with an extremely easy high register. (…) Finally, her Trovatore Leonora fits like a glove; she deploys in her aria a legato and a few welcome nuances and brilliantly pulls off  the cabaletta and its ornamentation. In the duet she confronts her partner with the energy of despair, both of them offering a captivating interpretation of this page.” 

"The arrival at the Salle Gaveau of Placido Domingo and Maria Jose Siri, a spectacular soprano accustomed to the great Italian houses, and the Arena of Verona in particular, could only engender an overflow of emotions immediately grasped by an audience come to fill themselves with a generous vitality... . (...)
Then, Maria Jose Siri takes her place at the forefront so as to play Leonora from Il trovatore. The rich and powerful vocal flow in bronze hues invades the entire space with its opulence that spins long, stunning high notes, and the sparkling gaze of this great artist amplifies this impression of limitless gift that she radiates infinitely. (...)
Maria José Siri’s torrential lyric soprano then finds in Maddalena's aria "La Mamma morta" a new opportunity to combine confidence, power of breath and vocal radiance without the slightest sentimentality, with the support of an orchestra that gives it all with these two great artists."

“Placido Domingo and María José Siri offer the Parisian public an intense Fête de la Musique, full of the pleasure of being able to gather again under the white organ of the Salle Gaveau and under the attentive direction of conductor Mathieu Herzog with the Orchestra Appassionato. (...)
The voice of the Uruguayan soprano seduces the audience (…) The tone is very round, of dark steel, and the free emission brings to the aria from Andrea Chénier a welcome depth. (...) the artist offers a generous range of nuances to portray the characters to whom she lends her voice, and knows how to combine the line de chant with the care for the text and a clear search for emotion.” 

“... Maria José Siri, who possesses a full voice (…) ..., she showed herself at her very best in André Chénier's "La Mamma morta": obviously, this is where her favorite repertoire is found.”
