Lisette - La Rondine
Miami Music Festival (July, 2018)
"Magda's maid Lisette and the poet Prunier are mismatched lovers who constantly quarrel but cannot let go of each other... Samantha Lax was a coquettish Lisette with a winning soubrette voice and scene-stealing charm."
- Lawrence Budman (South Florida Classical Review)
Mrs. Gobineau - The Medium
Baltimore Concert Opera (November, 2021)
"Samantha Lax's beautiful voice is a lovely accompaniment to Mr. Lucas' (Mr. Gobineau) and her portrayal of Mrs. Gobineau is as well-acted as it is sung. She brings a depth to the rather smallish role that makes every note an achievement."
- Timoth David Copney (MD Theatre Guide)
"The séance regulars, soprano Samantha Lax, baritone Travis Lucas, and mezzo-soprano Taylor Hillary Boykins, sang and acted so well that I thought while I listened to them that I hope BCO brings them back to feature in more prominent roles."
Jade Boucher - Dead ManWalking
Miami Music Festival (July, 2017)
"As the four parents of the murdered teenagers, Robert Turnage, Samantha Lax, Kristin Fahning, and Tyler Koch expressed grief for their children and anger at Sister Helen... yet never descended into stock characters."
- David Fleshler (South Florida Classical Review)
Maria Bertram - Mansfield Park
Indianapolis Opera (March, 2016)
Barbarina - The Marriage of Figaro
Pittsburgh Festival Opera (July, 2015)
"Samantha Lax, in the smaller part of Barbarina, displayed a lovely voice and true comedic acting ability. Her enunciation of the English text was possibly the best of the evening."
- George B. Parous (Pittsburgh in the Round)
