“The young American singer Heidi Melton as Dido is a real discovery, a soprano with pleasant high notes and endless reserves.”
-Martin Roeber, Volks Freund

“Heidi Melton’s beautiful, focused and effortless voice conquered the audience in this moment.”
-Pforzheimer Zeitung

“Karlsruhe is vocally lucky, that Dido has the last word, because Heidi Melton is phenomenal – a fluid voice without limitation.”
-Joachim Lange, Mitteldeutsche Zeitung

“The young American Heidi Melton sings the leading role of Dido with an overwhelming palette of expression between gentle introspection, explosive outbursts of anger, attractive singing and appropriate acting,”
-Eckard Britsch, Opernnetz

“And Heidi Melton sings this very well, with soul, culture and a big voice, that one will likely hear in other places."
-Stefan Dettlinger, Mannheimer Morgen

"American dramatic soprano Heidi Melton's Didon made a strong impression with her radiant top, which seemed matured in Mediterranean sunshine. 
-Horst Koegler, Opera News

“And one is already fascinated with the young and newly-engaged American soprano Heidi Melton, who not only sang the best French of the evening, but also with regard to secure style, taste and mastery of her role. Standards have been set.”
-Sigrid Feeser, Die Rheinfpalz

“The soprano Heidi Melton, who appeared as First Lady at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Helmwige and Third Norn in the Ring, and who sang Sieglinde and Aida at the San Francisco Opera is a discovery. Her lush, round, unbelievably healthy, brilliant and rich voice filled the hall and she seems to know no difficulties or limitations, not even at the end, where vocal stamina is required.”
-Thomas Tillmann, Online Musik Magazin
