Julia receives great reviews in the title role of CARMEN at Landestheater Schleswig-Holstein:
The American Julia Mintzer, a guest, is ideal casting: fresh, lascivious, coquettish, and strong. Her soprano register shines like fire, while her mezzo register definitely shows that she is not to be trifled with. — Kieler Nachrichten
Julia Mintzer plays her role with cynicism, innocence, and cruelty, barefoot at the beginning, and with great dedication, She is very seductive with her body language and her acting. Her voice is especially expressive in her high register. —Schleswiger Nachrichten
Julia directed the first production of Beethoven's FIDELIO to be staged with historical instruments in the United States, listed as one of Opera News' picks for "Noteworthy and Now."
She returns to the Landestheater Schleswig-Holstein in 2017 as Elisabetta in MARIA STUARDA.
