The Ballad Baby Doe - Central City Opera House Association
    “Sharpest etched among smaller parts were Augusta's Friends (Rebecca Jo Loeb, Jessica Tanish, Corinna Wallace, Desiree                             
    Wattelet).”          ---Opera News – October 2006


L’incoronazione di Poppea - Central City Opera House Association
    “Among impressive young voices heard were soprano Wattelet (Virtu), contraltos Teresa Herold (Damigella) and Wallace (Nutrice), tenor
    Michael-Paul Rubitzer (Famigliaro) and bass Bryan Boyce (Littore).”         ---Opera News – October 2006        


Elektra - Austin Lyric Opera
    “Of the maids who appear at the beginning of the opera, soprano Desirée Wattelet and mezzo Cindy Sadler were the most         outstanding,
    Wattelet because of her soaring, lustrous sound and Sadler because of her honeyed  low notes.”         
                                                                                                                ---Maria Nockin, Opera Japonica - January 2005

    “All the smaller roles were handsomely sung, with special notice going to the lustrous Fifth Maidservant of soprano Desiree Wattelet. That role
    is often a showcase for future stars, and Wattelet seems headed in that direction.”        ---Mike Greenberg, Express News – January 2005


The Telephone - The Sarah and Ernest Butler Opera Center
    “UT Opera Theatre offers the double bill with Menotti’s perfectly adequate arrangements for two pit pianos.  Sunday, the comic curtain-
    raiser about telephone calls coming between two   lovers was distinguished by Desiree Wattelet’s fluttery soprano and extravagantly pretty
    looks, matched with Stephen Ruduski’s embellished frustration.”        
                                                                                                                                   ---Michael Barnes, Austin American Statesman - February 2003
