Taikahuilu / Die Zauberflöte Savonlinna 2014:
" The stars of the show are tenor Tuomas Katajala and soprano Tuuli Takala. … The debutante Tuuli Takala succeeds to dazzle in the role of the Queen of the Night. The voice of the graceful and beautiful Queen springs easily into the high coloraturas and delivers a thrilling ferocious tone. "

" Another fantastic debut at the Olavinlinna Castle was the Queen of the Night, portrayed by the winner of the Timo Mustakallio competition Tuuli Takala, who infatuated a nearly full audience.
Even the highest tones chimed free and silver-bright, and above all – pure. It feels as if Takala was born to be the Queen of the Night, so naturally she tackled these superhumanly difficult arias. And still there is the needed might and anger in her singing. Also the low register had sternness. "
