"Marsee debuted at the City Opera in 1970, as Sara in 'Roberto Devereux,' opposite Sills and Domingo. Later, that Tito Capobianco production was televised from Wolf Trap, now with Sills, John Alexander, and Fredricks. Marsee is sensational. Certainly one of the most beautiful of mezzo-sopranos, and a marvelous singing-actress, she is a glamorous foil for Miss Sills. Stunning! (1975)"
"This is a marvelous, under-appreciated recording. Sills and the electrifying Norman Treigle are at their zeniths, and this was Miss Marsee's only studio recording. Her adorable Nicklausse is all one could ask for in the part. One notices, particularly in the famous 'Barcarolle,' how the voices of Sills and Marsee blend perfectly. (1972)"
"Marsee's Giovanna (Jane) Seymour is a touching creation, a sensitive counterpoint to the grand Anne Boleyn of the great Renata Scotto. Also heard in this 'live' performance from Philadelphia, is the young Samuel Ramey as the arch-villain Henry VIII. (1975)"
"In 1977, Marsee made her European debut, at the Spoleto Festival, in 'Così fan tutte.' Later the same year, she appeared at the Aix-en-Provence Festival for this memorable performance, with Montserrat Caballé, José Carreras, and Vicente Sardinero in their primes, as well as the young Ferruccio Furlanetto. Marsee is here at her most passionate! (1977)"
"Excerpts of the above. It is to be hoped that Miss Marsee's telecasts of 'Il turco in Italia' (1978), 'La cenerentola' (1980), 'Rigoletto' (1988), and 'Le nozze di Figaro' (as Marcellina, 1991), from the City Opera, will soon be commercially published on DVD."
"The 'Barcarolle' from Marsee's recording of 'Les contes d'Hoffmann' is heard here, along with many operatic excerpts featuring various opera stars of the post-World War II era. An amazing compilation. This same duet can be found, as well, on 'The #1 Soprano Album' and 'Beverly Sills and friends.'"
