"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
"Leading the cast (Dido and Aeneas) was mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Mondragon whose velvety voice gave life to an otherwise dull character. ...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, her mellow mezzo caressing the ear...Ms. Mondragon never vamped or overacted. Her Seguidilla at Lillas Pastia’s tavern was sung and danced with fervor and subtleness. 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. Ms. Mondragon has a surprising upper extension to her voice that gave us sudden bursts of glory. This was a performance to treasure." - Brooklyn Daily Eagle
"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
