LA FINTA GIARDINIERA | DIE DEUTSCHE BÜHNE

"Ilkin Alpay is the playful Serptetta, beautifully intonated, [who plays the role of] a thoroughly modern, curious and busy chief secretary."

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK | BADISCHE NEUESTE NACHRICHTEN

 

“It is precisely because of this distance from the historical figure that Alpay appears very approachable in the film. She takes the viewer into the story and brings the historical person into the present in an equally impressive way.”

 

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK | DIE RHEINPFALZ

 

“The soloist, the young Turkish soprano Ilkin Alpay, who started a few years ago in the opera studio of the [Badisches] State Theater and has always attracted a great deal of attention even in small roles, has a significant share in this effect. She sings the demanding part effortlessly and intensely - and absolutely authentically. Her performance is more than just heightened declamation. In her singing, Ilkin Alpay makes her own inner movement tangible in the fate of the Anne Frank she is portraying precisely because it is so concentrated.”

DEBUSSY LIEDERABEND | BADISCHE NEUESTE NACHRICHTEN

"...All things considered, it can be said that it is a particular pleasure to follow the development of Ilkin Alpay. [A] great talent is developing here, which she confirmed again at this song recital in the Badisches State Theater."

CONCERT | STEREO.DE

 

“For the 18th time, Siemens Turkey organized a competition for young Turkish opera singers in Istanbul. 26-year-old İlkin Alpay won over the jury with her warm, youthful soprano, and prevailed over 33 competitors.”
