"The vocal performance of the night goes to Kiandra Howarth in the role of Fiordiligi. Seamless are her vocal leaps in ‘Come Scoglio’ and truly revealing of Fiordiligi’s internal conflict is her obbligato recitative ‘Ei parte’ and expressive rondo ‘Per pietà, ben mio’"

Culture Hub Magazine | November 2017

"The famous Per Pietà aria got a pretty good outing from Kiandra Howarth’s Fiordiligi"

The Irish News | November 2017

"Kiandra Howarth is a very beautiful Donna Anna with a somewhat metallic tone but sharp and powerful highs, perfectly translating the distress of her character with a constant nobility and succeeding a high-flying "No mi dir" to the untied and precise vocalise"

ResMusica | October 2017

"Australian soprano Kiandra Howarth's Anna is one of those we will not forget. With a fleshy voice but capable of pianissimi the most tenuous, it expresses all the phases of anger and spite in love with a wealth of colours of a rare delicacy" 

Opera Online | February 2017

"Kiandra Howarth shook the hall with her resonant soprano" 

Bachtrack | January 2017 

"Kiandra Howarth is possessed of a spellbinding soprano that in its projection of a beautiful, light sound reveals a vast range of nuances"
