Minor roles are well characterised, notably Lara Marie Müller’s pert Esmeralda. - Martin Kettle, The Guardian June 2019

Lara Marie Müller as the circus girl Esmeralda was as nimble in her upper register as she was on her pins

The Spectator Richard Bratby June 2019

There is a sweet Esmeralda from Lara Marie Müller and, to cap it all off, circus feats aplenty from clowns, jugglers and acrobats.

And, her make-over does the trick: at the close, Papageno and his longed-fore Papagena (a sparklingly vivacious Lara Marie Müller) gleefully anticipate the multiplying brood they will spawn as they stumble out of their clothes with comic enthusiasm and affection

Claire Seymour (opera today) 2018

His Papagena was the vivacious Lara Marie Müller, looking as if she’d wandered in from The Cunning Little Vixen and singing with grace and wit. No one can take away the charm from ‘Pa-Pa-Pa-Pa-Pa” especially when sung with such verve
