Reviews

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, Rupert Enticknap and Damian Thantrey, all excellent.

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’s lyrical performance was delightfully seductive.

One must also mention the performance of the beautiful Caroline MacPhie in the (far too brief) role of a young girl…

Special mention must go to MacPhie’s performance as Pamina. Her solos were breathtaking and she manages to convey the many emotions required for this part.

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

…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.

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