SOME REVIEWS ABOUT LINDA:
Norina in “Don Pasquale”
The overwhelming Norina by Linda Campanella: the soprano is totally in the pink in a role that seems to be written exatly for her. This confidend and fascinating Norina comes onstage looking like Jane Fonda in “Barbarella” and makes most of her audience jump.
Norina’s aria gently flows adorned by an impeccable execution.
This mood goes on for all the Opera, in which mrs Campanella comes out with a fresh coquetry.
In practice, here we find her beautiful qualities, already noticed in mrs Campanella’s Gilda in Bergamo, given back more impressive by the incredibly voice’s fusion with the role.”
(GB Opera)
Cambiale di Matrimonio, Savona
The lively “Fanny” of Linda Campanella rules the all the evening.
Her voice is always well-mixed with a careful staginess and deals successfully with the redoubtable aria “Vorrei spiegarvi il giubilo”. All these skills, in my opinion, make this Artist one of the most interesting nowadays for this kind of repertoire.
L’Opera – Silvia Campana
Elisir d’Amore Bergamo/Tokyo
What about Linda Campanella? We can say all the best, both about vocal precision and the grace of her interpretation. She’s able to stay on stage with moderation and naturalness, making the character as believable as possible.
This singer has evidently the professional reliability of an authentic musician: she follows the director’s instructions but she doesn’t give up followiong what the original wordbook says.
Corriere del Teatro
Linda Campanella’s experience and good use of voice are her strong point.
She characterizes her roles with elegance and moderation. Her timbre is delightful and all the vocal agilities are approached in a resolute manner.
Operaclick – Marilisa Lazzari
… With peaks of excellence with Maria by Linda Campanella, who makes the “vivandiera” a fancy, breezy character with an excellent voice control. She is petite but incredibly determined and engaging; her timbre is fresh and considerably extended, she has good homogeneity in all the registers. The diction is clear and clean, both in rushes and in frequent agility passages, which are performed with accuracy and never flattened: in most brilliant moments she caused lots of applause from her listeners. Also welldone the first act aria, with well-managed breaths and an always relevant phrasing.
The over-high spots of some all-characters scenes are loud and well-marked.  Linda is really a wonderful surprise.
Operaclick – Vittorio Zambon
Ranked as one of the more eclectic voices on the international scene and one of the best renowed and respected vocal coach.
Linda Campanella has a complete and wide experience in all the main vocal repertoire: Opera, Belcanto, Baroque, Lieder, Contemporary.
