EL PUÑAO DE ROSAS. Teatro de la Zarzuela. 2011


“Soprano Carmen Romeu took on the vocal leading role. Once again, the beauty and sureness in her voice, together with her ease when hitting high notes, have allowed her to play an excellent Rosario and a provocative couplet singer”.  
Diario Ya (Luis de Haro).
“In a previous article on the ‘Trust’ I already mentioned Carmen Romeu as a revelation in different senses. Her performance as Rosario brought about the same miracle. Ms. Romeu is a wide-ranging soprano with a sure voice, and if her appearance as a couplet singer in “Trust” was convincing, here she let all her vocal facet in dramatic tones unfold. In some versions, Rosario has been entrusted to a mezzo-soprano or a dramatic soprano. That dramatic aspect is something Carmen does have.”  
MadridTeatro (José R. Diaz Sande).
