Ailyn Pérez has recieved some lovely reivews of her performances.
“There’s a distinguished role debut from Ailyn Pérez as Liu: her luscious, fruity timbre is perfect for Puccini and you completely succumb as her voice tingles up the stave.” – The Times
“Ailyn Perez made a sensational role debut as the slave girl Liu. Using her diminutive physique to her advantage, she cut a tragic figure on stage and used her bright and agile soprano voice to telling effect. As is often the case with this role, she was awarded the biggest ovation of the evening.” – What’s On Stage
“Yet, not for the first time, the show was stolen by the petite lyric soprano as the adorably self-sacrificing slave girl Liu. Ailyn Perez is currently a house favourite, and one could see why: she combines a limpid yet glowing voice with an attractive stage personality and aside from a tiny glitch at the end of “Signore, ascolta”, she floated pianissimi above the stave with spine-tingling ease.” – The Telegraph
“Ailyn Pérez sings with caressing warmth and stylishness as the self-sacrificing slave girl Liù” – Metro (London)
