Reviews

 

Her voice was surprising (...), from her first aria, she showed a magnificent control of breathing and coloratura, and a very pleasant sonority.

Dani Cortés Gil, El Núvol, September 2021

 

Confident and communicative (...), with great savoir-faire on stage, she was the singer who gave more intention to the words. Well rounded voice endowed with a nice ring.
Codalario, September 2020

 

The young soprano Aurora Peña is one of the voices that stands out among the critics due to her extraordinary projection, her colorful and beautiful timbre and for her ductile singing line with a good stamina and a nice high register. Her interpretation [is] deeply expressive.
