"Daniela Tabernig fue una Rusalka memorable que cantó con una voz que supo manejar con gusto y expresión. Buena línea, excelente fraseo, bello timbre… todo se combinó para que su voz fuera la soñada para esta desdichada náyade. Su versión de la célebre «Canción de la luna» permanecerá por mucho tiempo en nuestra memoria y en nuestro corazón."
