…commanding a grand dynamic range…
 Madama Butterfly – “Dina Kuznetsova made her Atlanta Opera debut as Cio-Cio San. She embodied Butterfly’s humility and devotion, infusing each phrase with a roundness of tone and commanding a grand dynamic range. Her “Un bel dì” was exceedingly and convincingly intimate.” ” – Opera News 
…cut through the masses of sound…
 The Bells– … the standout — literally — was the soprano Dina Kuznetsova; her warm, clear voice was able to cut through the masses of sound and make an effect in a way the other two were not”.  – The Washington Post
…assured and sweet tones…
Turandot – “Much more naturally engaging, and obviously one of Puccini’s female favorites, is the faithful slave girl Liù. Dina Kuznetsova sang the part with assured and sweet tones that made one wonder why the stubborn Prince Calàf insisted on loving the cold Turandot.” – Opera News 
…ample volume, passion, and intelligence…
Madame Butterfly – “It’s Kuznetsova’s unsparing musical performance that really turns you to jelly. Butterfly is really three roles in one: the girl in over her head, the lover ferociously in denial, and the abandoned tragic heroine… Kuznetsova has ample volume, passion and intelligence to bring all three to life… If you’re in bits by the end, it’s the diva wot done it.” The Times
…a vocal immersion…
 Eugene Onegin – “…her (Kuznetsova’s) long letter scene is absolutely crucial to the opera, both dramatically and musically. She brings to the letter scene just about everything one could ask for — lyricism, frustration, tenderness, gorgeous quiet top notes, a vocal immersion into the romanticism of what she is doing.” – Edmonton Journal

From the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in Gianni Schicci with Sir Antonio Pappano, Staatsoper unter den Linden as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni with Daniel Barenboim, Wiener Staatsoper as Juliette in Roméo et Juliette with Claude Schnitzler, and Bayerische Staatsoper as the title role of Rodelinda with Ivor Bolton to the San Francisco Opera as Pamina in Die Zauberflöte with Donald Runnicles and the Metropolitan Opera as Francesca da Rimini with Marco Armiliato, Kuznetsova has earned the reputation as one of today’s most compelling sopranos.

More recently, Dina has further developed in the Slavic and Russian repertoire which has been central to her recent seasons. Role débuts have included Kátya Kabanová for Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile and at Staatsoper Hamburg, Rusalka for the Glyndebourne Festival under Sir Andrew Davis and at Teatro di San Carlo, Naples, and Lisa in Pique Dame with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra under Vladimir Ashkenazy. Last season Dina made a début as the title role in Jenůfa in Jorge Lavelli’s production for Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile, as well as returns to the roles of Tatyana for Florida Grand Opera and Rodelinda for the Bolshoi Theatre in Richard Jones’ production under Christopher Moulds.

A keen recitalist and chamber musician, Dina Kuznetsova appears regularly at both the New York Festival of Song and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and features as part of the Music@Menlo series of CDs performing songs by Dvořák and Shostakovich. Recently, Dina returned to the Tuesday Musical Association in Akron in recital with Jinjoo Cho.
