"Soprano Ashley Bell may well have been the person for whom the role was written for her brilliant suitability to the intense vocalism that Poulenc demands with a large voice, dark in her low notes and shimmering in the upper register, with a powerful and overwhelming middle voice and furthermore with world class acting that ignited her performance with expression."
- Eduardo Aisa, La Rioja
