“Anna Tonna’s fine Laura proved most elegant in deportment, line and authentic proto-veristic style.”
David Shengold
Opera Magazine (London)
"As Adalgisa was the mezzo soprano from the United States Anna Tonna, a voice of notable volume, good projection and important agility, with good acting and most importantly, with the ability to to fill the Metropolitano Theatre, whose acoustic is impossible, and has been known to put a damper on voices such as that of Eva Marton.”
Emilio Sanmiguel
El Nuevo Siglo (Colombia)
"Anna Tonna effectively stole the show as Ernestina, offering a prototype of the classic quick-witted Rossini heroine with a heart of gold as well as showing off her warm, secure mezzo-soprano to maximum advantage."
Peter G. Davis

“The protagonists of this concert have a long trajectory of commitment to music composed by women. They add to these values themes of environmental justice and sustainability. Although both work and live in New York City, they are frequently in Madrid with new and interesting ideas to frame the project Women in Music/Mujeres en Música...their inspiration and knowledge reached great artistic heights, thanks to the hard work of both the interpreters and composers, to the delight to all that were present”.
“The state room ‘Don Luis’ of the National Palace of Ajuda in the city of Lisbon converged this past March 14 in a meeting point of artists and personalities who attended to enjoy a recital of songs by Dominican composers entitled “From shore to shore”, presented by the Embassy of the Dominican Republic to Portugal. The artists, pianists María de Fátima Geraldes and mezzo soprano Anna Tonna delighted the public with musical repertoire that included composers such as José de Jesús Ravelo, Julio Alberto Hernández, Luis Rivera, Rafael “Bullumba” Landestoy, Aura Marina del Rosario, Margarita Luna, Manuel Simó, Enrique de Marchena and Darwin Aquino”.

"Every pitch was precise and every phrase flowed luxuriously. But what was most enjoyable about her performance of this particular passage was the clarity of her text and how it fit perfectly into the musical language. As evidenced in other performances, this is undeniably one of Tonna's strengths and it allows for an immersive experience of her singing that not all singers possess. This was only furthered by her stage presence."
