“Soprano Sofia Troncoso was a perfect choice to deliver this cycle, which she did with great aplomb and a fine attention to detail…She sang with both passion and an intense commitment, her strong and beautiful soprano solid throughout the range and offering excellent top notes.”
“Troncoso was superb, delivering a wide emotional range, opening on Fanfare with high drama and showing a multitude of expressive depths throughout the song cycle...Troncoso’s embodiment of the short poetic pieces was sweeping and wild in places, more nuanced in others, but always rich and evocative, reflecting Rimbaud’s tormented life and work." Classikon
"Troncoso was sleek, elegant, fiery and intense in a striking black gown and elbow length gloves and she sang with great fervour, deeply engaged, showcasing her assured and graceful soprano...Troncoso erupted into this prismatic, multi-layered song cycle." Sydney Arts Guide
"It was a captivating performance, vocally well up to the gymnastics of Britten's mercurial music. The voice itself is certainly attractive, basically sweet but with some darker gleams to it, and Troncoso had no trouble filling the two-thousand seat QPAC Concert Hall or cutting through some very dense walls of sound created by the strings. Best of all her French was full of character, savouring the subtle shades of those back-of-the-throat vowels." Brisbane Live Reviews
Pinchgut Opera: L'Orontea
“Sofia Troncoso hams up the breathless desire of Orontea’s rival Silandra, her voice dripping with voluptuous sensuousness and caressing cadences…” Sydney Morning Herald
“As the vixen-like Silandra, Sofia Troncoso’s penetrating and gloriously rich and translucent soprano has just as much impact as her character’s ways with men.”

“…Sofia Troncoso’s reading of the fickle Silandra would fit right into an episode of The Bachelorette. She has a crystalline tone, pure and beautifully controlled.” Limelight Magazine
“The superficial bubble gum-chewing courtesan Silandra was a real standout, sung with a shimmering tone and beautifully accomplished phrasing by Sofia Troncoso. In the modernised libretto translation, Troncoso delivers some of the funniest lines with fantastic comic timing..."

Opera Queensland: The Marriage of Figaro
"The beautiful soprano of Troncoso is solid throughout the range; a perfect voice for this role. Her touching aria, Deh vieni non tardar was expertly sung, as were her many trios and ensembles."
"Sofia Troncoso is exquisite
and endearing as Susanna..."
"Sofia Troncoso’s limpid soprano was even more versatile as the central character Susanna, the maid whose wit, indignation, and compassion saves the day, and who responds immediately to every change in this kaleidoscopic opera."

Musica Viva: Queen of the Nile with Camerata
"Glorious Baroque music from Camerata showcased luscious soprano Sofia Troncoso as the Queen of the Nile."
“Demanding not only an excellent technique but delicate phrasing and breath control, as well as fiendish agility in the higher register, Troncoso was impressive on all counts.”

Scottish Opera: The Magic Flute
"Finally, Sofia Troncoso made a comic Papagena, transforming from a rotund Mrs Tiggywinkle outfit to a beautiful soulmate for Papageno, surrounded by steampunk prams with tartan blankets for the emerging “papageni”."
"...the show was very nearly stolen by Sofia Troncoso’s Papagena."
"Sofia Troncoso’s delightful soprano is worth waiting for as Papagena."

Diva Opera: Die Fledermaus
"In the Strauss, Sofia Troncoso as Adele is deliciously mischievous, her vocal expression with clear timbre are cheerful, especially her perfect coloratura in the aria Mein Herr Marquis..." Resmusica (translated from French)

Longborough Festival Opera: L'incoronazione di Poppea
"...an outstanding Poppea from Sofia Troncoso schemed and seduced with weaponised charm..."
As Poppea, Troncoso was compellingly sensual--letting her smoky, perfumed phrases curl around Nerone, with a soprano that was simultaneously coolly controlled, and tremulous with barely suppressed lust."

"Into the energetic vortex created by the gods steps Poppea, played with palpable sensuality, by Sofia Troncoso, an American soprano of South American heritage making a stunning Longborough debut."
Wales Arts Review
National Opera Studio, London
"Sofia Troncoso's creamy soprano and excellent acting skills were especially effective in Four Sisters."
Keith Potter, Opera
"Two soprano-tenor duets completed the show, with sweet-timbred Sofia Troncoso and the crisp, rather Gallic-sounding Joseph Doody in numbers from La Sonnambula and Don Pasquale, which they played like two young people in love rather than opera singers going through their usual motions."

Grimeborn: The Marriage of Figaro
"Troncoso's Act Four solo was poignant and beautifully sung, at a level with the remainder of her performance."
Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill
"The star of the show is Sofia Troncoso as Susanna, who has a supple voice and acting ability."
