Julia is the winner of the 2017 National Opera Association Stage Director Fellowship.
La Femme Bohème with Metrowest Opera:
Mintzer’s direction was engaging overall and often original... a highly energetic, fascinating production. -- The theater times
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
