"The rising star Kristin Lewis, often compared to Leontyne Price, sang a powerful Libera Me without forcing effects as many sopranos did." ~Brigitte MAROILLAT

"... Kristin Lewis’ voice blossoms to the full in the scores of Verdi’s maturity ... Her Aida was stunning, and [here] her sleek luminosity evoked the Nile (and Leontyne Price) ... "~Presto Classical

"Kristin Lewis ist die Masada AIDA. Die bildhübsche amerikanische Sängerin zählt mit ihrer unverwechselbaren Stimme heute zu den führenden Verdi Sopranistinnen. Zu ihrem Repertoire zählen die Titelrolle von Luisa Miller, Elisabetta in Don Carlos, Medora in Corsaro und Leonora im Troubadour. Sie ist regelmässiger Gast in den Opernhäusern der ganzen Welt, darunter die Arena die Verona, die Oper in Florenz, die Wiener Staatsoper und die Opernhäuser in Bilbao und Tokio."~Amazon


"Yesterday I fell in love. American soprano Kristin Lewis swept me off my feet. In the role of Aïda in Verdi’s opera of the same name, performed last night at the foot of Masada, she was elegant, beautiful, and pitiable. Her voice, so clear and luminous, called to mind a friend’s description of fine opera: “It takes your heart and gives it a pat.” ~Esther Hecht Word Press

"Il soprano statunitense Kristin Lewis che affronta, non ancora trentenne, per la prima volta il ruolo di Amelia, ha un timbro sontuoso e ricco di armonici che rimane tale anche nelle note basse di cui è costellata questa difficile partitura."~Patrizia Monteverdi Opera Click


"Arkansas-born, Vienna-based Kristin Lewis makes both her debut as Amelia and her Parma debut in this production. She has a powerful and quite lovely voice: try her stunning Act II arias Ecco l'orrido campo and Ma dall'arido stelo divulsa." ~Robert Cummings Classical Net
