KLANGVOKAL MUSIKFESTIVAL DORTMUND
"The impulsive Spanish Mezzo-soprano Maite Beaumont inspired as Agripina with great vocal ability, even more expressiveness, a sparkling firework of facial expressions".
Ruhr Nachrichten, 12 June 2019.
Concert at Schwetzinger. May 2019
"José de Torres has truly earned such a reputation with his music, especially when, in addition to the ensemble (two violins, cello, double bass, lute, oboe, harpsichord) playing so catchily, such an expressive mezzo-soprano as Maite Beaumont makes her mark on the arias and recitatives of the cantadas. The voice is excellent, the modulatory means impress and the content and narrative element is vividly emphasized. An unusual voice, always clear and intense, elegant and without artificial embellishments even in the (...) coloraturas. Full of variety of expression. (...) For the listener, the variety of expressions and the compositions of the vocal phrases are more important. Accompanied by El Ayre Español, Maite Beaumont emphasizes these vocal phrases in her interpretation .“
Mannheimer Morgen, 16 May 2019
"The spirited performance by the singer and the instrumental turned the concert into a thrilling evening. (...) The Spanish mezzo-soprano transformed the small‚Cantadas al Santisimo‘ and the ‚Cantada al Nacimiento‘ into great opera together with the dedicated playing ensemble. With their sparkling performance, they transformed the cantata for Jesus' birth, a pastoral idyll with other baroque composers, into a musical work full of drama. (...) Embedded in the sound of the lyrically played oboe and the expressive performance of the two violins, supported by the springy rhythm of the continuo group led by Eduardo Lopez Banzo on harpsichord, the enormous versatility of Maite Beaumont's voice came to the fore.“
Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, Nike Luber, 16 May 2019
Giovanni Batistta Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. Baluarte
"Two extraordinary voices could be heard, which fit very well to the moving work of Pergolesi: Sabina Puértolas, with a colorful and for the listener pleasantly round voice. And Maite Beaumont, with her very special timbre - a real mezzo-soprano - and with a vocal warmth that few singers have. Both are at the height of their careers.“

Rossini's L'italiana in Algeri. Gran Teatre del Liceu
'Maite Beaumont is highly appreciated it in this opera house for her roles in operas by Händel and Mozart. With her interpretation of Marques Melibea in the last season, she recommended herself for Rossini. Her role debut as Isabella in the Teatro del Liceu confirmed this feeling: she delivered her three areas with a mellifluous and musical voice giving the impression of an artist who knows what she is doing and without forcing her voice one single time.'
Opera Word. Robert Benito, 26 December 2018
Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro. Staatsoper Hamburg
'I like most the voice of Maite Beaumont (Mezzo-Soprano)' who sung Cherubino. With her stage presence (...) she conquered all the hearts immediately. (...) And I wasn't alone in my opinion: the audience rewards the fabulous performance of the Spanish singer with the longest final applause".

Händel's Rinaldo. Teatro de la Maestranza
'The cast was exceptional starting with Maite Beaumont who used her soft, caressing and warm voice for delicate phrasing. She meticolously took care of the most tender musical affects as well as of the eruptions of fury of her character mastering the coloratures with bravura.'
Andrés Moreno Mengíbar, Diario de Sevilla. 11 March 2018
'Maite Beaumont is a mezzo-soprano from Navarra with a sonorous voice like velvet, vigorous also in the lower registers and more lyric than dramatic (...). '
Carlos Tarín, ABC. 11 March 2018
'Outstanding in her interpretation was Maite Beaumont (Rinaldo), her singing was exceptional in her aria ‚Cara sposa’ in the first act.'
José Antonio Cantón, El Mundo. 12 March 2018

MONTEVERDI L'incoronazione di Poppea (Concert form). Gran Teatre del Liceu
'When I had to choose one singer over the others without doubt it would be Maite Beaumont in the role of Ottavia, the outcasted wife of Nerone. All evening her singing was brillant and expressive and she topped her performance with a fantastic interpretation of Addio Roma'.
beckmesser.com, José M. Irurzun, 4 December 2017
'With her flawless and warm timbre, Maite Beaumont triumphed in the role of Ottavia. The voice of the mezzo-soprano from Pamplona actually is in an enchanting phase of maturity which she already proved in Rossini’s „Il Viaggio a Reims“ at the opening of the season of the Liceu last October'.
La Vanguardia, Jordi Maddaleno, 5 December 2017
Maite Beaumont repeated her sensational Ottavia from eight years before. The mezzo-soprano portrayed her character with so much majesty and moving tragedy expressing everything with vocal and dramatic naturalness. An unmatched Ottavia!“
nuvol.com, Antoni Colomer, 3 December 2017
'Maite Beaumont as Ottavia showed assurance and expressive power in her interpretation'.
El Periódico de Catalunya, César López Rosell, 2 December 2017

ROSSINI Il Viaggio a Reims, Gran Teatre del Liceu
'Maite Beaumont sings Melibea with silk timbre and beautiful phrasing and characterizes the Marquesa as a lovely and complex character.'
www.forumopera.com, Yannick Boussaert, 17 September 2017
'Maite Beaumont sings the role of Melibea with such dedication, marvellous timbre and aplomb in the coloratura arias that one wishes to hear her in many other leading roles of Rossini’s operas'
www.olyrix.com, Emmanuel Andrieu, 16 September 2017
'The enchanting Corinna sung by Irinia Lungu, the powerful coloratura arias sung by Maite Beaumont (Marquesa Melibea) and the sparkling high notes from Sabina Puértolas (Countess of Follerville) as well as Ruth Iniesta (Madame Cortese) testify the enormous aplomb of the women’s voices in this opera.“
El País. Javier Pérez Senz, 14 September 2017
'Fortunately, the demanding singing Rossini composed for coloratura voices meets an appropriate interpretation in this production (...). Sabina Puértolas (Countess of Follerville) gave proof of her comical talent and stood out with ‚Partir, o ciel’, the same must be said of Maite Beaumont as flirtatious Marquesa Malibea.'
El periódico de Catalunya, César López Rosell, 15 September 2017'
'An attractive and ample mosaic of voices in which the elegant Corinna sung by the Moldavian soprano Irinia Lungu stood out as well as the debut of the Spanish Singer Ruth Iniestra as Madame Cortese. The same charisma and quality of singing had both Sabina Puértolas as Follerville and Maite Beaumont as Melibea.'
La Vanguardia, Jordi Maddaleno, 15 september 2017
'Maite Beaumont interpreted the role of Marquesa Melibea with aplomb and great phrasing up to perfection in her duet with Count Libeskof, sung by Lawrence Brownlee.'

MOZART La Nozze di Figaro, Municipal de Santiago (Chile)
'Maite Beaumont’s Cherubino was one of the highlights of the production. The young man burning with passion has found a wonderful interpreter in the mezzo-soprano. Maite Beaumont sang the youthful role with flexibility in her voice and gamine attitude'.
tuiteroscultura.com, 15 June 2017
'Maite Beaumont drew much attention as young and passionate Cherubino. This trouser role is very sophisticated and demands of the mezzo-soprano not only to act as a young man but in the course of the story, to play a man disguised as a woman. Maite Beaumont mastered her part with great success. She mesmerised the audience not only with her convincing acting but also with her pristine singing'.
desdelabutaca.cl, 19 June 2017
'Maite Beaumont is a magnificent, energetic Cherubino...'.

HANDEL Alcina, De Nationale Opera, Amsterdam
'As Ruggiero, Maite Beamont argues convincingly, with her intimate and warm chest voice, that women may lay legitimate claim to Handel’s castrato role'. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, February 2015
'There is (...) a brighter light: Maite Beaumont’s Ruggiero. (...) Beaumont can be relied upon when it comes to trouser roles, both vocally and dramatically. Sta nell’ircana is satisfyingly heroic and solidly sung. (...) Her Ruggiero is very much an Octavian: young and confused but also gutsy when his patience has run out. She’s in excellent voice, which is a treat, as her voice fits Ruggiero'.
