As Jenifer in "A Midsummer Marriage" at the BBC Proms: “It's hard to imagine the piece receiving a better performance than it did here. […] The casting was as good as you'll get these days. […] Canadian soprano Erin Wall was making her Proms debut as Jenifer and displayed a wonderfully secure and thrilling voice.” —Keith McDonnell, What’s On Stage, August 19, 2013

As the title-role in "Thaïs" at the Edinburgh Music Festival: "Revivals [of "Thaïs"] are rare, largely because of the immense difficulties, vocal and dramatic, of the title role. They were more than met, however, in this concert performance by Canadian soprano Erin Wall. Her glamour is magnetic: you understand why, at the start, men are prepared to bankrupt themselves for Thaïs. More important, however, is the extraordinary ease and sumptuousness of her tone, and a hovering, ecstatic quality in her singing that makes her so convincing as both sexual icon and saint." —Tim Ashley, The Guardian, August 19, 2011

As the title-role in "Daphne" at the Santa Fe Opera: "I'm trying really hard here not to exaggerate. Still, for many of us in attendance at the Santa Fe Opera's new production of 'Daphne' last Saturday, it was a little like being Halley when that comet swam into view. Or Keats' historically incorrect Cortez at his first glimpse of the Pacific. But this time it was hearing Erin Wall sing the title role of Richard Strauss' late, nearly great 'bucolic tragedy' with power, feeling and conviction in one of those you-had-to-be-there SFO debuts that happen with any regularity. Remember Mariusz Kwiecien in '04 and Anthony Dean Griffey in '05? Well, you'll not soon forget Wall's Daphne. It's an unforgiving role, much of it lying in a treacherous register too high for comfort for most sopranos. Not here. The fearless, sweet and lovely Wall makes it sound easy, pouring out generous, burnished warmth, moving gracefully about the stage, creating a character for whom mortality is not enough and divinity too little." —John Stege, SF Reporter, July 18-24, 2007
