'Karoline Podolak enchanted in ‘Je suis Titania’ from Ambroise Thomas’s Mignon. The aria was a fireworks display of coloratura, trills and bell-like high notes.'

Seen and Heard International, February 2023

'Her tone was gleaming, with excellent agility for the treacherous runs, showing fine musicality, attractive stage presence, not to mention that intangible something called star power.'

Ludwig Van, November 2022
