• Carmel Thomason "It is a strong dramatic performance the likes of which is rarely seen in musicals." Manchester Theatre Awards
  • Mark Shenton "Her performance as Lucy here is one of the best sung in London at the moment. It's the role that was originated by Wildhorn's muse Linda Eder, and Alberto is every bit her vocal equal." The Stage
  • Dominic Maxwell "...what Alberto gives us here is a grand, engrossing study of ambition. The closing song, Lament, is as good as I've ever heard it sung." The Times
  • Julian John "Also outstanding was Madalena Alberto as Fantine, her version of 'I Dreamed a Dream' was emotion-laden and brought tears to the eyes." South Wales Argus
  • Sophie Adnitt "Highlights include Madalena Alberto, exceptional as the acidic, insecure wife of bullish Nick Denery (Mark Healy)." British Theatre
  • Michael Arditti "...Madalena Alberto, who gives a performance of vocal splendour and dramatic subtlety, capturing every facet of a character which changes from Gigi into Lady Macbeth and Camille." Sunday Express
  • Alun Hood "Madalena Alberto is genuinely touching as a soft-hearted stripper Cal falls in love with" WhatsOnStage
  • Michael Billington "The virtue of Madalena Alberto’s excellent Eva is that she refuses to sentimentalise the heroine." The Guardian
  • Paul Vale "...Nina, played with a brittle honesty by Madalena Alberto." The Stage
  • Mark Shenton "It’s the oldest cliche in showbiz to stay a star is born, but one has arrived in Madalena Alberto in the title role of the West End’s new Evita." The Stage
  • Le Figaro "Quant à Fantine, incarnée par Madalena Alberto, elle fait oblier Susan Boyle dans sa version du fameux I Dreamed a Dream."
  • Quentin Letts "... Miss Alberto is superb as Eva, feeding off the crowds, her voice sure." The Daily Mail
  • Lisa Paul "...a powerhouse performance from Madalena Alberto as Lucy, the hooker with a heart." Timeout
  • Peter Walsh "Madalena Alberto too was fantastic as Fantine whose rendition of I Dreamed a Dream truly made the hairs stand on end." Norwich Evening News
  • Mark Valencia "Andrew Lloyd Webber's score holds no terrors for this Portuguese-born diva, and she brings every word, every note, to three-dimensional life." Whatsonstage
  • Palminder Kaur "Madalena Alberto’s Fantine was perfect in her gracious misfortune and eventual desperation." Guide 2 Bristol
