“Outstanding among an excellent cast was Danish soprano Susanne Elmark, who undertook the central role of coquettish Marie, whose downfall from middle-class respectability into prostitution and despair the opera traces. Her ability to bind the notes of Zimmermann's twelve-tone writing into phrases that made musical and psychological sense, in addition to her control and accuracy, was astounding.”

MARTIN WHEELER, Opera News December 2013, review Die Soldaten, Opernhaus, Zürich

Lulu in Lulu, Teatro Real Madrid, September 2009: “Bellissima Elmark managed to create an anthological Lulu, both vocally and dramatically. She managed to lead us into and comprehend Lulu’s infernal downfall, to move us with her amoral innocence without diluting the cruellest aspects of her character. Unforgettable.“

Francisco Villalba, RITMO, nov.09, review Lulu, Teatro Real Madrid
