“…the superb soprano Nell Snaidas.”–The New York Times
“Perfectly cast, Nell Snaidas sang with a voice that can languish, cajole, laugh and pout.”–The New York Times
“Nell Snaidas brought a beautiful soprano voice, a superb sense of line and a gift for physical comedy to the roles of Amore and Valletto” –The New York Times
“One of the world’s leading interpreters of Sephardic music… the American-Uruguayan soprano Nell Snaidas took the spotlight, with the confidence of a master teacher, she offered three love songs that brought a flexibility to the choir’s timbre and an earthy passion to the austere Fuentidueña Chapel (Cloisters Metropolitan Museum of Art).” –Commonwealth Magazine
“The concert was led by guest curator and performer Nell Snaidas — a captivating storyteller and crystalline singer in everything she sang”–The Chicago Tribune
“And vocally, the ravishing moments were many: Nell Snaidas, who proved a brilliant comic actress in “Poppea,” switched gears to give a wrenching account of “Lamento Della Ninfa”. –The New York Times
“And speaking of high notes, Nell Snaidas was the soprano of the evening and brought down the house with her “Glitter and Be Gay.” She is a brilliant soprano” –Playbill
“Snaidas’ voice has remarkable purity with glints of rich sensuality” –The Vancouver Sun
“Among the highlights were Soprano Nell Snaidas’ period-correct renditions of “Dido’s Lament” and “Bist du bei mir”, both of which transcended history with heartfelt music making” –The Milwaukee Journal
Nell Snaidas, the soprano, gave an emotionally charged reading of Scarlatti’s chromatic score, using carefully controlled dynamics and florid but thoughtfully applied ornamentation to evoke Orpheus’ desolation as it is transformed to determination. Ms. Snaidas has a sweet, tightly focused sound, and she has no hesitation about using vibrato, sometimes lavishly but always expressively. She invariably brings a clear sense of the drama within the music to her performances and inhabits her characters, even on a stage as small as Bargemusic’s (perfect for this music). Ms. Snaidas used both timbre and body language to convey coquettishness, frustration, anger, satisfaction and amorousness. Her account of Mazzocchi’s “Sdegno Campion” (“Anger, That Bold Champion”) was forceful but nuanced, and she brought melting passion to both Caccini’s “Amarilli” and Henri du Bailly’s “Yo Soy la Locura” (“I Am Madness”). –The New York Times
“Of the excellent cast, Nell Snaidas is the really talented singer and actress.” –The Boston Globe
“That and the soprano Nell Snaidas’s direct, beautifully modulated performance of the Purcell were probably the program’s highlights. But there were close contenders… Ms. Snaidas sang Monteverdi’s “Quel Sguardo Sdegnosetto” and Stölzel’s “Bist Du Bei Mir” with the same suppleness and warmth that she brought to the Purcell.” –The New York Times
“Madamoiselle Cunegonde, played and sung masterfully by Nell Snaidas… anchors the production with great vocal abilities, comedic timing and commanding stage presence.” –Provincetown Magazine
“Soprano Nell Snaidas, who is picture perfect as Cunegonde, has a set of pipes on her that won’t quit. Her “Glitter and Be Gay” is terrific.” –Stagebuzz
Nell Snaidas brought life to music through her clear and beautiful soprano that needed no mic (every word was clear). Her smart, sassy, and sexy rendition of the bawdy “My Thing is My Own” showed feminism was alive and laughing even in “ye olde” days. But it wasn’t all cakes and ale as she showed in the touching “Barra Faustus’s Dream” and “The Poore Man Pays for All.” –Cool Cleveland
Soprano Nell Snaidas made her first appearance last weekend with Viscera and provided the best singing heard in both evenings. Her vocal control delivered just the right opulence for this early/middle Baroque period, plus it should be recalled that Snaidas appeared in two Early Music programs last summer. After dominating in a sequence with the title, “Punishments, Minor and Major” and the song “Galeritas de España,” Snaidas highlighted the evening with — as translated: “Old Ballad of the Confession of a Lady Accusing Herself of Breaking the Ten Commandments,” by Luis Briçeño from 1626. Nell Snaidas is welcome back any time — with any group. –nuvo-Indy’s alternative voice
