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
She returns to the Landestheater Schleswig-Holstein in 2017-18 as Giulietta in LES CONTES D'HOFFMAN, and Santuzza in CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA.
