As Azucena in Il Trovatore
  Selected Reviews  
Conchita de Antuñano stands out from her first note as the Troubadour's gypsy mother. Her sound is consitently impressive.
Jeanette Borzo
Contra-Costa Times (CA)
The Mexican mezzo-soprano, Conchita de Antuñano singing the role of Azucena makes you believe these things could happen: her Azucena is haunted by her mother's death and fatigued by years of carrying the burden of her secrets. In the gripping aria in which she describes the fire, Antuñano built tremendous drama into the story and added dimension to her voice, opening from a low murmor to a high rich vibrato, spitting out a phrase with clenched fists crying "Il figlio mio avea bruciato!" with a penetrating shriek..
Sarah Cahill Buffalo Express
in concert with Jerome Hines:
Other memorable moments were provided by the Mexican mezzo-soprano Conchita de Antuñano, a particular crowd favorite.
Peter Spencer
Newark Star-Ledger
in Recital at Carnegie Recital Hall:
  Conchita de Antuñano has a sturdy instrument and a powerful range. Her manners on stage were elegant.
