"Simone Osborne shone and her voice soared as Nannetta, the Ford's daughter, as she was given one of the few real arias in the work, a third-act beauty which she delivered with grace and care." —Robert Harris, The Globe and Mail, October 4, 2014 - Nannetta in 'Falstaff' at the Canadian Opera Company

If the production’s concept was successful at all, it is to be owed to her.” —Matthew Richard Martinez, BachTrack, May 30, 2013 - Barbarina in 'Le nozze di Figaro' with Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic
