“DiMarzio does impressive, instantaneous transitions between vulgar and soulful, and she widens her vibrato to great effect as the character's insanity increases over the course of the show. Her last, plaintive "Hey, don't I know you, Mister" is hair-raising."



Don Aucoin,

The Boston Globe

“DiMarzio stands out with her brassy, to-hell-with-convention gusto…"


Stephen Sondheim

“…wonderful in the role. Thanks for screeching the "mischiefs." You sang it the way I had intended. I thought I had written it wrong…. you proved to me that I didn’t. Thank you.”



Playbill/ Patti LuPone

“I love watching this woman every night. Not only on stage but off stage. The silent dedication and gratitude. She is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and it shows. She and I work together in a couple of scenes and how it shows up the most is in her technique. I love an actor with technique. I’ll try something new and Diana is right there with me. She’s game, she’s alive every minute she’s on that stage. She also has this voice that’s freakish. It sounds like a dramatic soprano but she also belts with the same weight. And this girl will never miss a performance. She loves being on stage. How lucky I am to be on stage with her.”


Curtain Up / CDN Fairfax, Virginia

"Finally, among the major roles, soprano Diana DiMarzio’s weird and perfectly realized Beggar Woman - whose character proves surprisingly central to the plot, was both colorful and creepy.  As a vocalist, she was fearless, burying what is clearly a fine voice by wrapping it in a halting character on the outer edges of complete madness.  When a singer takes risks like this, the result is a truly memorable evening of opera."



Broadway World

The New York Times
