about Lady in the Dark

The absolute star of the evening is Maartje Rammeloo. With her perfect English she was more Liza Elliott than Liza Elliott herself. It seemed as though this was Rammeloo's signature role with which she has been achieving international acclaim for years. Singing like this, acting like this and getting into a character like this, is absolute world class!

about Lady in the Dark

Maartje Rammeloo plays the role of her lifetime: one believes her portrail of this complex character - her stiffness as well as her desire to break free -  and admires her for the way she shakes off the comfort zone of her operatic soprano, seemingly with ease and great joy. Especially in The Saga of Jenny and the vulnerable 'My Ship'.

Dec 2, 2017 Opera Magazine

(about Mahler 8)

In the first part the female quartet (...) had excelled in lyrical beauty, in the Faust-part they convinced even more in their individual parts. Maartje Rammeloo sang the Lied-like ‘Bei der Liebe’ with purity.

Aug 22, 2014 Cultureel Persbureau

(about Candide, Grachtenfestival, Amsterdam)

The casting is perfect. Maartje Rammeloo is a lascivious Cunegonde who, with her agile voice, gives a hilarious performance of the famous aria "Glitter and be gay", bouncing on the couch as if she sings herself to an orgasm.


Aug 21, 2014 De Volkskrant

(about Candide, Grachtenfestival, Amsterdam)

Maartje Rammeloo is a sparkling Cunegonde with her big blue eyes and her cooing vibrato and vocally excels with her performance of the coloratura aria Glitter and be Gay in which Bernstein mocks the Bel Canto style.

Aug 23, 2013 Opera Magazine 

(about The Tsar, his wife, her lover and his head, Grachtenfestival, Amsterdam)

My mind wandered to that other discarded Anna, Boleyn. Maybe because Maartje Rammeloo, who more than fabulously performed the role, promises to be an Anna Boleyn as well? Time will tell, but her beautifully timbre, her suppleness and her way with notes and transitions, leave you wanting more. read the whole article (in dutch)

Weihnachts oratorium, Philharmonie Haarlem)
Maartje Rammeloo is a soprano with great warmth who reaches angelic heights...

Mar 1, 2011 Musical Reports
(about the play Master Class, 3 and a Crowd)
Most striking for sure is Maartje Rammeloo, who is the only real operasinger of the night. She delivers her aria beautifully and, for a moment, is able to distract the audience from Douwes playing Callas.

Nov 11, 2010 Heerenveense Courant
(about Candide, De Nationale Reisopera) 
"Pure vocal highlights in Candide"
Especially Maartje Rammeloo, as Candide's lover Cunegonde, shines in powerful and flexible solos.

Nov 4, 2010 Tubantia
Candide, De Nationale Reisopera)
Young operatic talent delivers Candide with speed and humor.
The soprano Maartje Rammeloo demonstrates that an operasinger must be able to sing in any position, even upside down. On top of that she shows great technique and a large vocal range in the famous coloratura aria.

Prince Arthur and princess Atala, excellently performed bij Maartje Rammeloo, who carries the show on more than one occasion, fall in love at first sight.

 Apr 9, 2009 Dagblad van het Noorden

(about Matthäus Passion with the Sallands Bachchoir, Hoogeveen)

And then there was Maartje Rammeloo singing the soprano aria Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben. Beautifully accompanied but sung só superbly that one would almost spontaniously convert. Goosebumps and watery eyes: cliché, but sometimes there are just no other words. After this heartbreaking performance one doesn't mind waiting another year...


Sept 2006 Brabants Dagblad

(about participation in the International Vocalist Competition)
A complete surprise was twentythree-year-old soprano Maartje Rammeloo, student of the Brabants Conservatory. Her agile voice radiates from forte all the way back to pianissimo and the enthusiasm with which she sells herself as a singer is heartwarming.
