“I doubt if I live an extra-long life that I will hear Ebben ne andrò lontana from La Wally sung better than Eliza Boom did last night. Since I first hear her singing in a New Zealand Opera in the Park concert her outstanding voice has become secure throughout the range with a sparking top and a pianissimo spin to die for. Not only the technique, but Boom feels every phrase with moving tenderness and beauty.”

“The cast of young singers responded to Talevi’s dynamism and Bryan Evan’s musical direction enthusiastically. The New Zealander Eliza Boom (Thérèse) is a pure-toned soprano, accomplished in both singing and acting.”
