Reviews

…as Susanna, Caroline MacPhie reveals a clear soprano and excellent enunciation in a performance that proves to be just as sharp as the character.

Caroline radiated joy and ecstasy…

Seen and Heard International (Cheltenham Festival with the Elias Quartet & Tom Poster, 2011)

The Queen’s daughter, the cause of the friction between the Queen and Sarastro, was portrayed beautifully by Caroline MacPhie. She brought to the role a lovely mixture of obedience to her mother, and the emerging desires of a bright young woman.

…the highly accomplished Caroline MacPhie…

Caroline MacPhie sang Berenice’s difficult music surely and truly….in the aria she spun her notes into touching, lovely lines.

The lovely, sweet toned Papagena, Caroline MacPhie…

But my personal favourite was the Lancashire-born Caroline MacPhie. Her light-lyric instrument was clean-toned and perfectly tuned, and she delivered an enterprisingly original programme… with flair, style and musical imagination.

Caroline MacPhie portrays a mischievous Barbara with clear high notes…

What impresses about the evening is not just how well the performers accomplish their difficult tasks but how integrated the whole show is.

Her bright, light lyrical soprano voice… also has dramatic bite. The performance is imaginative and eloquent…
