"Mezzo-soprano Kellie Van Horn...turned in some fine singing in the central role of Carmen. Van Horn wielded a classic Carmen voice, dark and sinuous, capable of impressive upper-level bloom, sharpened by an edge of danger and harboring a sense of contained fury."

"The Commonwealth Opera built a mostly successful performance this weekend at the University of Massachusetts on mezzo-soprano Kellie Van Horn's ability to smolder." ... Van Horn combined strong singing with a bewitching stage presence to keep 'Carmen' rising surely"
Larry Parnass, Daily Hampshire Gazette
