Natalya has received universal praise from major arts critics for her role debut as Tatyana in Tchaikovsky’s EUGENE ONEGIN at Garsington Opera.
Hugh Canning of the Sunday Times writes: “Natalya Romaniw is a Tatyana in a thousand”, whilst Rupert Christiansen of The Telegraph claims that “Romaniw, still in her twenties, is fast consolidating her reputation as one of the outstanding sopranos of her generation”. The Financial Times’ Hannah Nepil hails her as possessing “a mesmerising stillness, a face full of expression and a glowing voice capable of astonishing power”, whilst Michael Church of The Independent calls her “the Tatyana of my dreams, with a rare combination of power, richness, and purity of tone.”
Natalya is a past winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Awards, was a finalist at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World song competition, and graduated from the Houston Grand Opera studio in 2014. This season, she goes on to sing Lisa in Opera Holland Park’s THE QUEEN OF SPADES and returns to Scottish Opera in the Autumn to sing Suzel in a single performance of Mascagni’s L’AMICO FRITZ.
