"In Cecilia, it is Elizabeth Mondragon, playing Charito—Cecilia’s mother—in two brief scenes who brings the acting chops. She is despair personified..." - DCTheaterScene.com
(Zarzuela Cubana - The In Series)
"The star of the night, though, was without a doubt mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Mondragon. Her performance of Aaron Copland’s 12 Poems of Emily Dickinson was a triumph, as she glided her way through the iconic poetry with strength, nuance, and a powerful wit that many others would forgo. Her performance made the piece as charming as it is beautiful, a feat that adds so much dimension to poems that have the capability of growing stagnant in their sacredness." - DC Theater Scene.com (The ABC's of American Art Song - The In Series)
"Leading the cast (Dido and Aeneas) was mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Mondragon...she found the subtlety of the character and played it with an acuteness that made one watch her every move. Her suicide...was intriguing and heartbreaking..." - BlogCritics.org
"Elizabeth Mondragon was a captivating Carmen...never vamped or overacted. Like a cat stalking a bird, this Carmen came in for the kill. Mondragon’s love scenes...were sung with tenderness and her confrontation with Don Jose preceding her death was gut wrenching. This was a performance to treasure." - Brooklyn Daily Eagle (Carmen - Regina Opera)
"Elizabeth Mondragon’s even, warm, and shimmering mezzo stood out... Her “Habanera” put the show to a solid start, and her “Una voce poca fa” was clear and riveting. Mondragon’s rendition of “If I Loved You” was startlingly beautiful...this Rodgers and Hammerstein classic is deceptively hard and Mondragon performed it effortlessly." - DCTheaterScene.com
