“In the role of Tebaldo - the young soprano Andreea Novac, with an elegant and enchanting stage presence, which conquers, both, through the beautiful voice and the plasticity of her acting.”
“A lovely Tebaldo, alive, charming and real, who entertains the spectator.”

“The role [Musetta] was played by the guest soprano Andreea Novac. I knew almost nothing about her before the show, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear a good quality lyrical soprano voice coming to us from the capital city. All the sequences were excellently sang and the acting was convincing. Therefore we expect a quick return, in a bigger role.”
