"Easily filling the church with an expressive, lovingly shaded soprano, Véronique Filloux portrayed the Damozel with an inviting mixture of sorrow and joy at the prospect that the two lovers might one day meet in heaven."

"...a magical experience."

"Véronique Filloux sang the soprano role of Despina delightfully, even in the passages requiring her to disguise her voice with a Papagena-like squeal. All three [women] proved to be excellent ensemble singers, and their voices in the concerted passages blended beautifully.

"Véronique Filloux’s delicious Despina... would find [herself] at home in any production of the Mozart opera – classic buffo characters presented with flare and fidelity."

"Though she is early in her career, a 2018 graduate of Maryland Opera Studio, I have seen Ms. Filloux perform twice previously in Opera Lafayette productions in DC... Her talent was obvious in those roles and is more fully displayed as Despina. The beauty of her voice and singing is perhaps best displayed in Despina’s entrance set where she sings an aria educating the young female lovers. In later scenes, she displays her comedic abilities as Despina dons a couple of disguises, changing her voice and movements within those roles. I was excited to learn that in PO’s February production of Handel’s Semele, she will play the lead."

"...this imposing Phèdre was marvelously counterpoised by Filloux's agile singing as both Aricie and a huntress..."

“The Broadway-style “Moon-Faced, Starry-Eyed” is a standout number with swing dancing between Mae Jones (played by Veronique Filloux) and Dick McGann (portrayed by Christian Hoff).”

"The three soloists were also excellent... Véronique Filloux made a highly favorable impression in the role of a maiden shyly facing the attractions of the act of love, and she then produced some stratospheric tones at her moment of consummation."

"Véronique Filloux brought a slender soprano and light sensual touch to 'I am come to lock all fast' and good cheer to 'Now the Night is chas’d away.'"

“Soprano Véronique Filloux had a warm, sumptuous sound as Tigrane.” ​

washington classical review

“Soprano Véronique Filloux as Tigrane and soprano Nola Richardson as Faarte were both delights, offering both charm and beautiful voices.” ​ 

operagene

"Fraarte and Tigrane... [possess] some lovely music which Nola Richardson and Véronique Filloux respectively dispatched stylishly." ​ ​

parterre

“In the two trouser roles of Tigrane and Fraarte, Véronique Filloux and Nola Richardson... deliver distinctive performances.” ​ ​ ​

superconductor

“Rounding out the cast, two delightful sopranos, Nola Richardson and Véronique Filloux, both Opera Lafayette Young Artists, took on the roles of Tiridate’s two generals, his brother Fraarte and the young Prince Tigrane. Each wore spiffy military outfits and sang their delightful arias with a youthful élan that happily complemented the dancing soldiers with their sunglasses.”​
