"Portrayed with an elegantly poised demeanour and touch of vulnerability, soprano Kathryn Radcliffe sang Leïla with radiance and clarity, her Act 2 aria Comme autrefois especially mellifluous and seductive as Leïla ponders the times when she would secretly meet Nadir."
"... Soprano Kathryn Radcliffe shines as the priestess Leila ...."
The Sydney Morning Herald
Why don’t we see more pregnant performers? This soprano hopes we will.
On the Couch with Kathryn Radcliffe
"... best of all is Radcliffe as the flighty, doomed nymph. Her crisp, warm soprano runs effortlessly over the top of the music, and the delicacy of her phrasing gives the role a heartbreaking melancholic core from which the emotion wells. She’s certainly a singer to watch."
Australian Arts Review
"Radcliffe’s soprano has a splendid, shimmering quality, while her gestures, pale painted face and voluminous red dress suggest a Disney princess porcelain doll. "
"... soprano Kathryn Radcliffe is radiant as ever, her pure and crystalline tone floating and lingering wondrously, albeit melancholically, as she suffers rejection ..."
"Her voice rings with a crystalline clarity, and leaps beautifully into coloratura ornamentation."
"... vocally magnificent. "
