    Houston Chronicle
    "The performances certainly dazzle. Top to bottom – literally, from Amore (Camille Zamora) descending from the sky on wires, to Susan Graham (Poppea) and William Burden (Nerone) sinking into a trap while prone on a chaise lounge – the singing is excellent."
    - Charles Ward (L’Incoronazione di Poppea, Houston Grand Opera)

    "Houston Grand Opera's publicity department speaks the truth: this is a dream team of singing actors; top to bottom, the best-cast production in recent memory. When Amore (a sprightly Camille Zamora) descends from the flies on wires as a dues ex machine, he's a little blond sailor boy in Bermuda shorts and kneesocks."
    - D.L.Grover (L’Incoronazione di Poppea, Houston Grand Opera)

    "This splendid production makes sense where many do not… Sanford Sylvan is an Alfonso of exquisite refinement… He finds an equally wry accomplice in Camille Zamora as the maid-of-some-work."

    The Ithaca Times
    "Soprano Camille Zamora sang a fine account of a somewhat hard-edged Despina, the sisters’ teen-age maid. Both her first and second act aria were very well performed, especially “Una donna a quindici anni” in which she amusingly imparted the experience of her youth to her naïve elders. And in both disguises, first as a quack doctor summoned to revive the poisoned men with magnets, then as a notary called to “wed” the re-matched couples in mongrel Latin, she was entirely credible in both appearance and manner."
    - Stephen Landesman (Cosi fan tutte, Glimmerglass Opera)

    The Daily Gazette
    "An exquisitely controlled and exuberant production… Zamora sang well and showed good versatility and a nice comic flair with her acting, which included playing the parts of a doctor and a lawyer – part of the plot’s deception."
    - Geraldine Freedman (Cosi fan tutte, Glimmerglass Opera)

    "The point at which the production becomes fun comes with the arrival of Despina in the saucy person of Camille Zamora."
