MARIA STUARDA | MUSICA VIVA HONG KONG | 2022
"[Dominguez] plays the titular character of Maria Stuarda, and her interpretation was a revelation: she is no noble victim crushed underfoot by an unjust and jealous rival. Dominguez styles her Maria as more of a proud, shrewd and manipulative player. Employing a whole arsenal of vocal colours and shadings, Dominguez‘s Maria plays upon the heartstrings of all the different characters she is paired with onstage. With Anna, her attendant (sweetly sung by soprano Kenix Tsang), she is playful and almost girlish, tossing out melismas with ease. With Talbot, she is every inch a noble Catholic, calling for justice from the heavens with a velvet timbre. Before a grieving crowd, she is all authority and forgiveness, floating pianissimi, a martyr unto death. Above all, with her suitor Leicester, Dominguez combines lightness of tone with a smoothly liquid line, demonstrating grace and fragility. With him, she is no queen, but an innocent princess requiring rescue."
VIOLETTA | ACADEMY OF VOCAL ARTS | 2018
"Her silvery, flexible soprano with its easy upper register is a natural fit for the first act especially. Indeed, she made a fine impression in “Sempre libera,” where keeping up with Macatsoris’s bracingly fast tempos was itself an achievement, but Dominguez also negotiated the details with precision and finesse."

JULIETTE | ACADEMY OF VOCAL ARTS | 2019
"Juliette’s tortured soliloquy before taking the potion, expressing her fears and doubts, then resolutely drinking it “à toi” – to Roméo – are Shakespeare and Gounod at their most profound; Dominguez was mesmerizing."

LUCIA | KNOXVILLE OPERA | 2019
"Yes, I’ll go out on a limb and claim that Ms. Dominguez is a singer that we’ll be boasting in years to come that we heard her in her early days. In the meantime, we can say that we heard a Lucia sung the way we always dream it—with gorgeous, crystalline highs and a powerful mid-range, yet painted with delicate coloratura vocal details that are spine-tingling, and all supported by a strong, credible interpretation. ... Dominguez’s Lucia was a masterful image of emotional drama and virtuosic vocal ability. Her vocal clarity, depth, and flexibility were simply sensational, especially mind-boggling in a singer at the beginning of a career."
