Italian Girl in Algiers
“Ann Marie Wilcox inhabited the part persuasively, revealing Isabella’s take-charge streak as easily as her beguiling side. The mezzo-soprano’s singing was secure and vibrant. She revealed a particular flair for inserting colorful nuances, some of the decidedly – and amusingly – non-operatic in style or technique.”
--Baltimore Sun (2004)

"Ann Marie Wilcox upends Madellana's role. No vulgar contralto, her gypsy lady is a sinuous, winsome charmer, veritably lyric in her flirt with her handsom visitor, her brother Sparafucile's next victim."
--Daily Freeman (2005)

“Wilcox, in her vigorous pursuit of the male animal, matches Christopher for hilarity. And her two big “biographical” numbers, with their complicated patter, come through loud and clear.”
--The Alliance Review (2002)

Man of la Mancha
As Quixote’s Lady, Ann Marie Wilcox is a ferocious Aldonza. The role is made for a semi-operatic voice, and Wilcox delivers. Wilcox’s voice is a crossover that turns her alley cat into an angel when she sings, separating her from the rest. When she belts in “It’s All the Same,” you can tell that this she’s a special singer.
--Mark Turvin - Goldfish Publishers (2006)

Italian Girl in Algiers
“Wilcox has the slender good looks and polished comic acting skills more commonly associated with musical comedy performers than opera singers. Her vivacity and assured stage presence help carry the production. Her voice, technique and range successfully meet the challenges of Rossini’s florid style…”
--Opera Glass (1996)

“The single most compelling musical moment, though, was offered by Ann Marie Wilcox as Nettie Fowler, who took full advantage of the inspirational opportunities provided by ”You’ll Never Walk Alone”.
--Columbus Dispatch (2001)

Gypsy Baron
“Extremely funny…a spitfire”
--Cleveland Plain Dealer (2000)

Le Petit Duc
“As the malicious directress of the convent school at Luneville, Ann Marie Wilcox wins the Munch-the-Scenery Award for her coq-au-vin accent and alluring outrageousness.” --Cleveland Plain Dealer (2000)

Naughty Marietta
“Ann Marie Wilcox sings a lushly tragic Adah.”
--American Record Guide (2002)

Man of la Mancha
Wilcox becomes increasingly feeling as her character is touched by Quixote and she sings beautifully.
--Chris Curcio on KBAQ 89.5 FM (2006)
