As Violetta in La Traviata:

“Rambaldi [as Violetta] was in rich, lyrical voice throughout the evening, singing with clarity and subtle expression. . .   Rambaldi’s physical movements and vocal gestures always appear natural; her shading and thinning of her tone in the final act, for instance, was a nice touch, done with subtle style ”

Chicago Tribune

As Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro:

“Soprano Juliana Rambaldi brought an impressive voice to the Countess.  Her tone has a well-developed point as well as considerable depth and opulence.  She sings intelligently and has a lovely legato manner.  Her arias were well sung, and her forgiveness of the Count, ‘Più docile io sono,’ was pure magic.”

“Rambaldi is stately and willowy, and looked smashing…Her tone is distinctive.  A quivery vibrato makes her sound vulnerable at pianissimo and passionate in a grandly Italian way at fortissimo.  What a cad Almaviva must be to ever want anyone else.”
