Opera News

Hongni Wu... brought technical agility, warm colorings and an ample sound to “Cruda sorte,” a bel canto showpiece from Rossini’s “L’Italiana in Algeri.” Then, after intermission, in a bold choice, she sang the opening scene of Strauss’s “Der Rosenkavalier” with youthful bloom and richness.

New York Times

Wu’s voice blossomed into a wide array of colours and emotions. She developed into her character and proved to be a remarkably outstanding voice.
