The Juilliard School 2019-20 Review: Rinaldo
Senior Maggie Renée Valdman, in the generously cut-down version of Goffredo, possesses a luscious and deep mezzo sound suited well for the music. Her interpretation was earnest and wise, commanding the stature of an army general. (Arya Roshanianm, Feb 21, 2020)

Love Sex Magic
As Goffredo, head of the Crusade and father of the heroine, Maggie Reneé Valdman’s suavely forthright and impressive mezzo made her character far less of a distraction than he can sometimes be: the character of his brother Eustazio was entirely omitted from the sensibly abridged performing edition Juilliard used. More than once I thought Valdman might have made quite a worthy Rinaldo. (Christopher Corwin, Feb 19, 2020)

Battle of the Sexes, Battle of the Faiths
Mezzo-soprano Maggie Renée Valdman made a strong Goffredo, evincing a richly textured sound and masculine posture. Phrasing and breath control, as well as dynamics, made for a fine performance. (Meche Kroop, Feb 18, 2020)

Talents of the World 2019 Review: International Voice Competition Grand Finals
Mezzo-soprano Maggie Renee Valdman came next, singing Olga’s aria from “Eugene Onegin.” Her bubbly opening soon tapered to a slower, lovely sentiment which retained its brightness even as Valdman dipped into her lower register. Her second number, “Must the Winter Come So Soon” from Barber’s “Vanessa,” made for a reflective contrast. Valdman’s questioning tones made her phrases sadly ache through this slower aria.(Logan Martell, Dec 10, 2019)
