Reviews

…the electricity of the girls singing Mercedes and Frasquita.

The whole cast in Nancy reaches perfection, starting with the small roles performed with panache, namely Caroline MacPhie…

Forum Opera (Katya Kabanova, Opéra National de Lorraine, 2018)

Caroline MacPhie portrays in this version a Glasha who is a cleaner rather than a servant. Her diction is executed effectively and she carries her high notes well whilst she toils away…

Céline Wadoux
Olyrix (Katya Kabanova, Opéra National de Lorraine, 2018)

Caroline MacPhie, the only Brit, put over her material with far more dramatic verve than anyone else; her Cunning Little Vixen extract, sung in Czech, was especially gripping.

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

…the quality of the three ladies, Caroline MacPhie, Heather Newhouse and Dorothea Spilger, who bring grace and intelligence to the vocal line and the text.

MacPhie sings with haunting sensitivity and emotional engagement… This lovely disc marks the arrival of a fine young recitalist.

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

Her poised voice has strong high notes, complimenting her excellent diction.

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