"What man wouldn’t fall under the spell of the beautiful Kemoklidze with her jewel-toned mezzo bel canto. Really, it is not a fair fight, but fight on they must for almost three hours."

"It’s never easy joining a cast in midstream, and still the Georgian mezzo-soprano acquitted her self quite well, thank you very much. She brings a moderately sized yet robust sounding voice with a rather prominent but not distracting vibrato and a warm tone. As she progressed through Act One, however, her voice settled in nicely, gaining more depth and richness. Her coloratura runs were impressive, laser like in their accuracy with each note distinct no matter how fast she sang. Her stagecraft was equally solid. She was easily likable, exuding charm as the innocent housekeeper and being appropriately stern as the mystery girl at the prince’s ball. All of her interactions with her on stage colleagues looked seamless."

"La mezzosoprano Ketevan Kemoklidze despuntó como una sensible y efectiva intérprete del papel de Angelina, y mostró ligereza, color y agilidad en su voz, con la que cautivó a un público que la premió efusivamente." 

L’Orfeo - Alberto Rosas

 

 

"This Cinderella registered a distinctive vocal presence and a large vibrato, but also a solid bottom end soaring to a lovely, exciting top that had little trouble being heard in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Kemoklidze sported a wider dramatic range, light on her feet and whimsical when playing with the rats, yet also able to express convincing anguish and pathos at the drop of a hat. She brought something different to the role when appearing as the mysterious veiled beauty at the ball - an imperiousness that suggested there was always a potential princess within Cinderella.  And through that heavy vibrato, she displayed good control over the florid coloratura flights that Rossini threw at her in her final, formidable aria that closes Act II"

Los Angeles Time - Richard S. Ginell

 

 

Mezzo Ketevan Kemoklidze, who offered an attractive and well-acted Cenerentola, handled both her lyric and coloratura passages well."

Opera Today - Estelle Gilson


 

"La mezzosoprano Ketevan Kemoklidze despuntó como una sensible y efectiva intérprete del papel de Angelina, y mostró ligereza, color y agilidad en su voz, con la que cautivó a un público que la premió efusivamente."

"Kemoklidze bot dunkel und dramatisch eine Arie von Francesco Cilea und zeigte sich kokett auftrumpfend in Rossinis "Barbier von Sevilla."
