"Na'ama Goldman is absolutely superb, with impeccable singing and elegant phrasing she knows how to intelligently color the words according to the dramatic situation.
And the feather in her cap:

"Goldman is an unusually tasteful singer and a scrupulous musician…
Throughout the evening she was relaxed, charming and utterly present."
Goldman gained outstanding audience and critical acclaim when she replaced at the last minute the title role in Carmen at the Massada Opera Festival 2012 under the baton of M° Daniel Oren.
