…the highly accomplished Caroline MacPhie…

…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…

The talented Caroline MacPhie…

Caroline radiated joy and ecstasy…

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

…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 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…

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

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.
