"AIDA - Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz
Tamara Haskin sang a glowing and full Aida. Her dramatic soprano voice had perfectly pitched high notes, a seamless, warm middle register and a whopping deep lower register. A strong woman who is equal to the father as well as the beloved is capable of going from high delicate pianos to sudden outbursts of passion." [J. Kempkens, Online-Merker - 2014]
