PIT musicalawards Esther Maas


“Esther Maas and Laetitia Gerard are the right contrasting duo in terms of character and appearance. With her New York accent, Maas' mezzo is surprisingly authentic.”

De Theaterkrant

“With her Jazzy sound, Esther Maas beautifully portrayed the intellectual flapout sister Ruth.”

Joep Stapel


"Amidst the fresh young soloists, the experienced Esther Maas offered the best of both worlds."

Martin Toet 

Place de L'Opera

"As Amy, Esther Maas has everything vocally to sing the complicated Sondheim notes perfectly."

Leon Vosters
