*...Anna Hanning Häggström had probably gone straight to Hjördis Schymberg´s heart. Competent, powerful coloratura soprano with a lovely stable timbre, high notes that lift the roof, superb technique and a captivating artistry she spoiled the audience with 2 Coloratura arias, such as Lucia di Lammermoor and Olympia in Hoffmann´s Adventure, delivering sparkling vocals in which she playfully and easily swung in the highest peaks. Bravura numbers easily win the audiences hearts, but then they must also be done with bravura and that´s what Anna Hanning did with such ease that you felt that there was even more to give!

*...Anna Hanning Häggström as Floria Tosca is brilliant not only vocally but also in in the way she steps into the role. Opera is not only about singing but also about acting. Her Vissi darte, Vissi damore ( everything is beauty, everything is love) is one of the highlights of the evening. So
beautiful and poignant that even the statuettes seemed to tremble a little.
