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.

MacPhie radiated joy and ecstasy…

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.

Richard Morrison

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.

Caroline MacPhie portrays a mischievous Barbara with clear high notes…

The lovely, sweet toned Papagena, Caroline MacPhie…

…Caroline MacPhie, Rupert Enticknap and Damian Thantrey, all excellent.

Three committed and accomplished soloists – Caroline MacPhie, Damien Thantrey and Rupert Enticknap – move like priests or mentors among us, reciting and reflecting.

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