Hanna Hipp Press Reviews
"This mezzo is one of those performers who not only lights up the stage when she appears, but also pervades infectious enthusiasm. "
Opera Brittania - by Miranda Jackson Oct 25th 2011
"Hanna Hipp, displaying her well-nourished mezzo, entered into the realm of death as the woman addressing her departed lover in the long sustained lines of ‘Le Spectre de la rose’; in ‘Sur les Lagunes’, she switched to the male role, mourning the loss of a belle amie, finally plunging down into the mattress as though into quicksand to join her. "
Opera Magazine - by Margaret Davis Dec 1st 2011
"Hanna Hipp was outstanding in ‘Le Spectre de la rose’, with a sensuous range of half-lit colours and singing those exquisite turns with perfectly judged sensuous languor."

"A singer to look for in the future, Hanna Hipp, a Jette Parker Young Artist, made more of the role of Dido’s loyal sister, Anna, than probably Berlioz actually gives her and sang with subtle feeling in their sentimental Act III duet. "

"the singing, over all, is strong, especially that of the mezzo-soprano Hanna Hipp as Anna, Dido’s attentive sister..."

"There are outstanding cameos from the warm-toned Hanna Hipp as Anna.."
Telegraph - by John Allison Jun 29th 2012
"Hanna Hipp sparkled and fizzed the moment she took the stage. There seems to be a plethora of really fine mezzo-sopranos at the moment, but Ms Hipp has something special to bring to the table. Vocally she stole the show in the first half of the evening. Her voice is pure and yet well-rounded; she has sufficient tonal focus and control of her vibrato to lead me to suppose she excels at singing Handel, and she can also act a convincing ‘pants’ role. She even transcended the oddest moment in this production which was when the young lovers opened the desk drawers to reveal what looked like overlong astro-turf – presumably a reference to their duet about a garden, but still puzzling nonetheless"
