SALOME

page | dallas symphony orchestra

"Deniz Uzun’s mezzo soprano was a welcome bit of brazen warmth as Queen Herodias’s page.“
 

texas classical review

"Mezzo-soprano Deniz Uzun gave us a spitfire but androgynous portrayal of the page, a pants role that is perhaps left open to be any youngster.“

HANS GABOR BELDEVERE COMPETiTiON

winner | jurmala, latvia

"There were five others who won special jury prizes which translate into valuable engagements to opera houses around Europe, Russia and South Africa. The German mezzo-soprano Deniz Uzun was the most engaging of them and should, I felt, have captured one of the top prizes. Energetic and coquettish, she flirted her way through Rossini’s “Cruda sorte” from L’italiana in Algeri. And while the tessitura of the part of Isabella is much more suited to a contralto, Uzun proved herself splendidly agile as she dexterously sung the low F as well as the F two octaves higher.“

DiE SACHE MAKROPULOS

krista | opernhaus zürich

„As Krista, Deniz Uzun brought a sappy, orange-toned mezzo and coped admirably with the high-lying tessitura.“

operatraveller

"The young soprano Krista (in the Zurich version she can hold a candle to her idol Emilia with an impressively clearness and power in her voice: Deniz Uzun)"

"Deniz Uzun could prove again that she is a big win for the ensemble."

SEMELE

ino | opernhaus zürich

"Ino was Deniz Uzun. I was impressed by the true alto quality of her voice, its depth and smoothness, and her great projection.“

bachtrack

"Deniz Uzun was dolled up for her role as Semele’s sister, Ino, and is a Zurich regular. She has a delightful voice and acts convincingly.“

LA VERiTÁ iN CiMENTO

zelim | opernhaus zürich

"The young mezzo Deniz Uzun (in a pants role as Zelim) had an astonishing warmth and poise to her sound, making me eager to follow her budding career.“

seen and heard international

"The singers all excellent, and Deniz received the biggest applause, it was more the award of Prima inter pares, even if well deserved."

litteratur

"...and the lonely left Zelim (wonderful and ravishing and pitiful at the same time: Deniz Uzun the whole evening in a black anarchy-streetwear by Karin Jod) lets his depression out  while singing the added aria from the Vivaldi opera "L´incronazione di Dario" full of sadness, though beautiful and excitingly melancholic."

RONJA RÄUBERTOCHER

ronja | opernhaus zürich

"Positively everyone sings without exception understandably every word. The cast is filled with clear and expressive opera voices... In the center certainly Ronja and Birk, though the relative strenght of the voices is set by the voicetypes; Mezzosoprano for the girl and soprano for the boy. With Deniz Uzun and Florie Valiquette this works perfectly. Ronja has the overwhelming strength for her protest and primal scream in the spring forest, but also the golden sound of empathy."

L'ENFANT ET LES SORTiLÈGES

l'enfant | opernhaus zürich

"The cast has known and unknown faces, who brought light to the evening and there was no role that had no musical and scenical presence... Deniz Uzun, born in Mannheim, already known from her performance as Ronja the Robber's Daughter, plays extremely believable the reblious child, with an expressive Mezzo Soprano she portrays touchingly the child's restrained emotions of the needs of the adolescence."

"Also minor roles should not be ignored. The turkish Mezzosoprano Deniz Uzun is a big surprise of the evening. Her voice is huge and adheres in the ear. From her one would like to hear more in the future!"

ALBERT HERRING

florence pike | bayerische staatsoper

"From the Young Artist Soloists Deniz Uzun peaks out as the housekeeper Florence. Not only did she fascinate with her voluminous, free sounding, velvet Mezzosoprano, but also did she make us laugh with her portrayal of the extremely morally strict, obedient to her mistress, but actually quite cunning and concentrated on her own interests and pleasure."

der neue merker

"Everyone else is from the Young Artist Program, and one can say that at least 3 of them will make a huge career, not saying that the other ones are worse. But Petr Nekoranec, Deniz Uzun and Marzia Marzo were outstanding. Uzun sings and plays the Stasi like gouvernness, has an already obvious presence. One always pays attention to her. Hearing her, her alto voice is almost a phenomenon, concise, clear and of a volume that you don't associate with such a slim body.”
