“Dimitra Kotidou’s Gilda is a genuinely true discovery. (…) Who, after hearing the stratospheric, effortless and so nuanced ‘floated’ pianissimi of the young coloratura in her grand air “Caro nome”, would retain any doubt? And also this natural simplicity in the vocalizations… Purity of the role, purity of the singing. (…) In the closing scene of the opera, Ms. Kotidou’s ultimate angelic accents, supported by the ethereal high pianissimi of the violins, are enough though to send us all to heaven.”

Jean Y. Gouzi

“the impressive confirmation of her high art of singing culminated in the third act in the “madness aria” and the moving part, which is accompanied by the glass harp. What security in the risky leaps, what beautiful pianissimi, what power in the top notes!”

Martin Köhl, Art5drei Magazine

“Dimitra Kotidou designed it [the madness aria] with flawless voice leading as a scene whose external virtuosity is not an end in itself but a means of expression. Dimitra Kotidou’s embodiment of Lucia makes a decisive contribution to making this evening of the premiere an event.”

Jochen Berger, Coburger Tageblatt

“Dimitra Kotidou is an impressive Konstanze in Mozart’s opera “Die Entführung aus dem Serail”, singing with dynamic and expressive accuracy.”

Christoph Guddorf, Neue Westfälische

“The big revelation of the evening is Dimitra Kotidou, who sings the three arias of Konstanze with a crystal soprano beam, with the lyricism of
mourning and the drama of rebellion and at the same time she possesses a remarkable coloratura agility.”

Uta Jostwerner, Westfalen Blatt

“Wow, what a vocal color palette she lights up: the way the singer with her spiccato-like chanting creates a recitative of shining pearls and immediately afterwards she fills the atmosphere with virtuosic melismas in a lustful belcanto like cotton balls floating in the air, that is magic.”

Bernd Schellhorn, Neue Presse Coburg

“What a voice, what an appearance, what a powerful woman! Both in her role but also as a performer. With her aria extracts from various operas, she simply pulled the audience off their chairs (…). With her wonderful voice and wonderfully exaggerated acting, she was the ideal cast for this role. Simply great, this woman!”


“Dimitra Kotidou! An amazing voice with its own coloring, a brilliant actress. She sings Donizetti’s maddening Lucia di Lammermoor before a thrilled audience.”

Dr. Carolin Herrmann, Coburger Tageblatt

“If you take the applause of the gala evening as a benchmark, then the Greek coloratura soprano Dimitra Kotidou should become one of the new stars of the ensemble. Her Queen of the Night “Der Hölle Rache” aria from Mozart’s “Magic Flute” got into the highest heights with sparkling lightness.”

Jochen Berger, Coburger Tageblatt

“It was Dimitra Kotidou who amazed the audience with her Queen of the Night aria “O zittre nicht, mein lieber Sohn” and heated up the atmosphere in the hall conspicuously.”

Susanne Resperger, IOCO.de Kultur im Netz

“Dimitra Kotidou as Taumännchen pleases with her neatly performed soprano, especially because of her magical appearance on stage.”

Michael S. Zerban, O-Ton

“Please stay the way you are and sing as you sing today. Don’t ever change. Listening to you is a true honour.”

Montserrat Caballé, Zaragoza, Spain
