The Art Song Festival 2020 launched in January at KMMC, Chennai, and was profiled in The Hindu and Serenade Magazine.

For Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana, Hampstead Garden Opera, May 2016

“In this performance of Cavalleria rusticana, there was no questioning who is at the centre: Nina Kanter as Santuzza dominated the stage both vocally and with acting presence. Her voice was full, rich, intense and she was compelling to watch and listen to… These performances are double cast, so I can’t speak for the other cast, but this one absolutely needs to be seen.”

For Tatiana in Eugene Onegin, Cambridge University Opera Society, February 2015

“Tatiana (Nina Kanter) did real justice to Pushkin’s potential to portray heart-wrenching human emotion. In a climax of her love-sickness, she paints Onegin’s name and a heart on a piece of the set, totally reinforcing the emotional intensity of the scene alone on stage… Kanter’s acting is matched by her vocal talent.The vocal power and control were exceptional from all the leads.”

(Varsity, Alex Sorgo, February 2015)

“Kanter also particularly impressed as the vulnerable Tatiana, and her sung love letter to Onegin was a particular highlight.”

For Giulietta in The Tales of Hoffmann, Southgate Opera, June 2014

“Nina Kanter could not have been more impressive in her role of Giulietta, the courtesan. It was a glorious sound from a beautiful woman.”
