Zia Principessa, Suor Angelica
“In the role of the Princess, aunt to Angelica, mezzo soprano Martha Anderson gave a splendid vocal performance. A true dramatic mezzo, Anderson has a voice that is large with an expansive and forceful lower register. Her clarion voice has an even quality from the top of its range to the very bottom and was able to cut over the orchestra regardless of where she was in her range. She handled the role of the cruel and judgmental Princess with dignity and her voice was superb.”  The EDGEboston

“At the opposite end of the emotional spectrum is The Princess, sung by Mezzo-Soprano Martha Anderson. As the cold and heartless aunt, Anderson is very well cast. Her voice is big, big and warm. And to make that voice give off icicles takes talent.” The SG Review

“The musical quality of the show was undeniable. Very good chorus and singers in minor roles, while certainly Avilla and Martha Anderson as the Zia Principessa took the largest share of applause both vocally and dramatically.”  El Nuevo Herald 07/01/2014

Mother, All Quiet on the Western Front, New York City Metro Chamber Orchestra
“The singers, without exception, gave excellent performances.”  Mark Greenfest, SoundWordSight 06/01/2014

“A stunning performance of Ms. Van de Vate’s opera using projections, staged singers, and an orchestra of extraordinary finesse.  The singers were bone-chilling.”

“Peggy Taphorn’s crew could hardly have been more polished.”  North Carolina Classical Voice 04/15/2012

Suzuki, Madama Butterfly
“The two standouts of the evening’s performance, however, were graduate student Eddie Adams as Sharpless and mezzo-soprano Martha Anderson as Suzuki. Adams’ commanding baritone was smooth and effortless throughout, and Anderson infused her role with considerable authority and, when called for, emotional tenderness.”  Steve Row, Classical Voice of NC, 3/5/2010

Maddalena, Rigoletto, Lofer, Austria
“Future opera star.”  The Salzburg News
