Lungu is a Mimì boasting powerful italianità and a soprano with a constantly cultivated singing line.
Kronen Zeitung

The audience favourites Saimir Pirgu and Irina Lungu performed for the first time in Franco Zeffirelli’s production as Rodolfo and Mimì. She with enormous vocal pathos, he vocally flexible and with powerful italianità.
Wiener Zeitung

In the picturesque scenery of the great master [Zeffirelli], Irina Lungu and Saimir Pirgu loved and suffered. Lungu was impeccable in the first act (…), in the snow flurry [of the third act] she widened her dynamic field up to glinting drama.
Der Standard

After having had to cancel at short notice at the season’s opening show of „La Traviata“ in September, she now sang flexibly and smoothly. (…) Strikingly and touchingly, (…) she put all her strength into the despair of her character later in the opera.
