The 28th of May 2019 Maria recieved
the Drottningholm Court Theatre's Friends' scholarship
from the Ingrid and Oscar Falkman foundation.
"Swedish contralto Maria Sanner, in a permanently mud-spattered greatcoat, excelled as Cesare. She adopted a credible masculinity and adapted her tones with alacrity"
"Maria Sanner made a strong, centred Caesar, singing with a lovely evenness of tone over the whole range /.../
a beautifully sung account of the role."
"Maria Sanner has the looks and bearing for Cesare, and she is especially strong when it comes to suggesting his more tender and thoughtful side."

Press voices, Ligetiland:
" "Aventure" for three voices becomes a whole small opera, where Alexandra Büchel is joined by Staffan Liljas and Maria Sanner. Laid-back in sun chairs they play an entire film of reactions, vibrant and very cleverly."
Bo Löfvendahl, SvD
"/.../the very complicit actors-singers present their bodies, singing in all positions and all tessituras with incredible mastery."
