La bohème‚ Israeli Opera

In the role of Mimi‚ the not yet very well known Noa Danon was a pleasant surprise with her bright‚ delicate soprano...

The Jerusalem Post (October 2017)

Don Giovanni‚ Theater Hagen

The soprano Noa Danon has jumped in to the premier and sang a sensational Donna Elvira‚ her enraged interval jumps were so perfect as glowing coleraturas.

Der Westen (May 2012)

The Turn of the Screw. Theater Magdeburg

The by far largest part is sung by Noa Danon and she finds the appropriate expression for each episode: optimistic and full of zest at the beginning‚ later on disoriented‚ fearful and confused but also resolute and cold. As a singer she masters all ranges of her voice.

Magdeburger Volksstimme (October 2010)

Don Giovanni‚ Theater Magdeburg

Noa Danon credibly displays a hopeless and irrational Elvira. Her superior interpretation of brittle emotionality goes along with an impressively pure tone and accuracy in the top of her voice.

OpernNetz (September 2010)

Carmen‚ Theater Magdeburg

Noa Danon had the most evenly balanced voice of the night. Her presentation of Micaëla was very authentic and with her well-rounded soprano she produced strongly differentiated colours of tone.

Orpheus Magazine (April 2010)

Micaëla‚ sung by Noa Danon‚ is more than a simple-minded peasant girl as she anticipates the tragic ending in the dramatic colours of her voice.
