FROM THE PRESS

The Carmélites staging … remains a model of poetic imagery, narrative point and expressive pathos. … an iconic masterpiece. … If only opera were always like this. Financial Times
Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard is an ideal Blanche. She sings with beguiling tenderness in moments of composure, but her voice throbs with penetrating intensity when Blanche is overcome with anxiety … The lovely lyric soprano Erin Morley is wonderful in the role [of Sister Constance]. New York Times
