Reviews

  • Bellini's Norma

    In Elin Pritchard they found a soprano with a lovely creamy, rich middle and lower register yet also able to go into the higher extremes with ease….Pritchard had a lovely way with the music, hearing her turn a fine phrase combining shape and tone was a real joy. The opening of ‘Mira, O Norma’ was spine-tingling, yet when combining with Helena Dix the two produced singing of real joy. As with Giulia Grisi, the first Adalgisa, you feel that Pritchard will inevitably move on to the title role eventually, and I look forward to hearing it.

  • Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor

    The most sensational singing of the evening, and indeed of the whole festival, came from Elin Pritchard as Lucia. From her beautiful opening aria, this young Welsh soprano’s command of the part was evident, and her mad scene was an astonishing tour de force of both acting and singing
