Rosalba | Florencia en el Amazonas | Pittsburgh Opera

“The young journalist Rosalba is played convincingly by soprano Natasha Wilson and her duets with developing love interest Arcadio, the captain’s nephew, played by Andres Acosta, are warm and pleasing.” ~ OperaGene, 2019

”Natasha Wilson made a spirited, effective debut as the plucky Rosalba...

 Ms. Wilson’s coyness at the outset was enchanting, matched by the certainty of her vocal work when leaping into the arms of Arcadio”

~ Jeremy Reynolds, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 2019

Morgana | Alcina | Pittsburgh Opera

“Soprano Natasha Wilson, as Alcina’s sister Morgana, poured out a glorious display of her abilities, and made the most of the character’s approach to comic relief. That she is a gifted singer was obvious from her first appearance with the company in the autumn, but Handel’s music allows her to shine far more brightly than the part of Rosalba in Florencia en el Amazons could have led one to expect. She sings with much brilliancy and possesses the stamina possible only to vocalists with the most polished of techniques.”

~ George B. Perous, Pittsburgh In The Round, 2020

Equally winning, and perhaps just a little more delicious in her pert, enchanting characterization of Morgana, was soprano Natasha Wilson. The sparkle in her voice and eyes made Morgana more vixen than temptress, and every moment she was on stage was a pleasure.” ~ Rick Perdian, Seen and Heard International, 2020

 “...So­prano Nata­sha Wil­son proved a show stealer as Al­cina’s sis­ter, Mor­gana, her char­is­matic whimsy and light, sup­ple voice prov­ing an ab­so­lute de­light.” 

~ Jeremy Reynolds, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 2020

Marzelline | Fidelio | Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra

“The rest of the cast were great as well, particularly Natasha Wilson as Marzelline, the daughter of Rocco and in love with Fidelio. Wilson had a fantastic voice and her innocence, her love for Fidelio in Act 1 was beautifully done and when it was revealed in the finale of Act 2 that Fidelio was really Leonore, her face, the despair, the shock, it was powerful, I really felt for her, and for that role, that’s very rare." ~ The Stuart Review, 2021
