"Clark imbued Fiordiligi with real emotions rather than the caricature of a prima donna. Most importantly she can rise to the role’s vocal challenges. She brought energy, fervor and dramatic passion to Fiordiligi’s “Come scoglio” and “Per pietà, ben mio.” Her strong low tones, fine projection and ease in coloratura passages propelled the ensembles as well as solo showpieces. Clark is a very promising soprano."
- South Florida Classical Review
"Clark somersaulted through her tough runs with bell clarity and purity — she is an impressive young soprano." - Naples Daily News
"Hailey Clark, making her CCO debut, immediately drew in the crowd with her striking stage presence and her astonishing vocal control. Clark's performance is a masterclass in how to fully inhabit and develop a character — all while dazzling with an ineffably beautiful voice.
Both arias drew sustained applause." - Boulder Daily Camera
“Clark knocked it out of the park with a flawless commanding “Come scoglio” followed by a truly inspiring “Per pietà.”
The tough coloratura seemed to encourage, not intimidate her." - Concerto Net
