"The splendor of soprano Natalie Image's artistry -- her bright, piercing sonority, eloquent phrasing and seemingly effortless sophistication -- is well known by now. But that didn’t detract from the exquisite pleasures of her solos from Mozart’s “Idomeneo” and Donizetti’s “Daughter of the Regiment.” 

- San Francisco Chronicle (Joshua Kosman),

Adler Fellow "The Future Is Now" concert, December 7th, 2019

“Natalie Image’s soprano was notable for its pristine high notes.”

- The New York Times (Zachary Woolfe),

Metropolitan Opera National Council Finals, March 20th, 2017

“Soprano Natalie Image of Tsawwassen, Canada, sang the first aria of the competition and sparkled her way through “O luce di quest’anima” of Donizetti’s Linda di Chamonix.” Her crystalline tone swirled through the house, sprinkled with immaculate coloratura, a really impressive start to the concert.”

- OperaWire (James Monroe Stevko), Metropolitan Opera National Council Finals, March 20th, 2017

“Yet some of the concert’s most ravishing singing came in the familiar repertoire, beginning with soprano Natalie Image’s performance of “Regnava nel silenzio” from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, a thrilling display of tonal lushness and agility.”

- San Francisco Chronicle (Joshua Kosman), The Future is Now: Adler Fellow Concert, December 9, 2018

“Carmen’s two female friends were uncommonly well sung, with Natalie Image offering a silvery, pliable soprano with a gleaming presence as Frasquita.”

- Classical Music Daily (James Sohre), Carmen (SF

Opera), June 24, 2019

“a singer of great vitality and imagination"

- San Francisco Chronicle (Joshua Kosman), Acis and

Galatea (SF Chamber Orchestra), February, 2019

“Image has that special something - an innate stage presence and a bright, clear, present voice.”

- Broadway World (Taylor Long), Canadian Opera Company Ensemble Studio Competition, November 2, 2017

“Soprano Natalie Image...delivered a crisp, buoyant version of Oscar’s “Volta la terrea” — all sparkling coloratura and vocal cascades...

- San Francisco Chronicle (Joshua Kosman), Merola

Grande Finale, August 21, 2017

“All four soloists took impressive command of the stage but Osoyoos’s own soprano Natalie Image shone. Her voice hit the high notes straight to second base whenever she sang, from favourites such as I know that my Redeemer liveth to less familiar recitatives. She created a new exotic species of songbird, complete with vibrant red plumage.”

- Vernon Morning Star (Christine Pilgrim), Okanagan Symphony Orchestra’s Messiah, December 20th, 2016
