It is a pleasure to see again HERMINE HUGUENEL as Marcellina after her memorable Queen Popotte in Offenbach's "Voyage dans la lune" in 2014. Her wonderful temperament makes her a remarkable figure. The scene of rivalry with Suzanne in the first act, while she still does not know that Figaro is her son, is particularly cheerful. It is a moment when one can freely have a good laugh again.

Excellent HERMINE HUGUENEL as Giovanna/Maddalena, equally satisfactory the day before as Mme Larina.

Catherine Scholler, Opéra Magazine, 31 July 2011


HERMINE HUGUENEL stands out interpreting brilliantly two roles: as the duenna being fondled by the duke meanwhile he is seducing Gilda and Maddalena, the sensuality and vitality of whom she brilliantly releases.

Catherine Jordy,, 9 August 2011


HERMINE HUGUENEL glows as Larina. Her excellent pronunciation of russian is to be noted...

Catherine Jordy,, 12 August 2011

HERMINE HUGUENEL is an exquisite Mme Larina.

Catherine Scholler,, 8 August 2011


The mezzo-soprano is HERMINE HUGUENEL. She too… has tinder and kindling in her voice sufficient that it smokes and flames;

Rob Barnett,


We are dealing with an imposing combination of intermingled tones, with resonances merged in the inimitable voice of HERMINE HUGUENEL at the height of her talent, expressing with passion the intelligibility and the interiority of the text.

Gérard Sapet, Le Renouveau, 28 août 2009


HERMINE HUGUENEL and Dorothée Leclair […] sing to perfection. This concert’s architecture is a delight to intelligence as well as to sensibility.

Claudine Chaigneau,, 3 August 2009


HERMINE HUGUENEL as Flora […] makes us regret her too brief appearance.

Simon Corley,


Let us salute […] HERMINE HUGUENEL’s ease in the coloraturas (Rosina).

Yutha Tep, La lettre du musicien, October 2008


HERMINE HUGUENEL embodies a not-so-naive Rosina, and she knows how to manipulate others; she commands the role’s tessitura and avoids its traps with verve.

Simon Corley,


HERMINE HUGUENEL portrays an engaging heroine and reveals a lovely gift for Rossinnian vocalise.

Marc Chamblain,, 8 August 2008


Let us spotlight HERMINE HUGUENEL’s stunning Rosina.

Marc Laborde, UTmiSOL, October 2008


HERMINE HUGUENEL is a tasty Rosina, crafty and mischievous, with beautiful mezzo coloratura tone and spotless vocalises.

Jean-Marcel Humbert,


HERMINE HUGUENEL’s Rosina is a little pest who isn’t easily deceived, not even by a count… she’s having so much fun – and so do we! – and she sends out her arias like love letters.

Jacques Doucelin,, 31 July 2008


HERMINE HUGUENEL’s authority is utterly convincing in the role of the Princess.

Bernard Dejean, October 2008


The supporting roles are certainly worthy of mention, starting with a revelation: HERMINE HUGUENEL with her spirited interpretation of young Siébel as a young lover; thoroughly vocal and incredibly dynamic.

Antoine Pagnier, ODB Opéra, 15 November 2007


We have enjoyed the clear and stable singing of HERMINE HUGUENEL (Siébel).

Laurent Bergnach,, 19 November 2007
