" Chrystelle di Marco est une Santuzza au volume impressionnant et à la projection très condensée. Très engagée dramatiquement, elle donne à ses trois grands duos un relief saisissant (...) "
Philippe Scagni - Ôlyrix

La Judith de la soprano Chrystelle di Marco déploie une voix longue, étirable et modulable à la demande d’un texte qui exige le cri comme un murmure et le murmure comme un cri. Le vibrato devient hybride, un peu surréel, de bruit et de chant, en écho à l’environnement visuel. Un travail particulièrement audacieux du souffle lui permet, en plus de faire varier les couleurs, d’opposer rapidement, une projection extérieure, classique, à une projection intérieure, particulièrement saisissante. Le personnage parle depuis ses « tripes », depuis le goût de son chant, et veut, obsessionnellement, faire la lumière, la projeter partout."
Florence Lethurguez - Olyrix
