'An unexpected feast of top-drawer opera'   Will Frampton, Bournemouth Echo,

on Magic Flute, April 2019 

'...one of the most enjoyable nights at the opera I have ever experienced. Some of these singers were not just already fit for performance with an established company, they were among the better singers I have seen in their role.'

'...Two promising young singers on the threshold of glittering careers gave an outstanding recital... Both singers, already equipped with considerable experience in opera,  conveyed admirable poise, intelligent musicianship and flawless techniques.'
