Reviews

  • At its heart is a breathtaking Violetta. The young Welsh soprano Elin Pritchard turned heads when she stood in for Carolyn Sampson as Scottish Opera’s Anne Trulove in the Rake’s Progress last season; evidently the company recognised something of a star, and given free reign as leading lady she is a vocal standout. Supple, husky, beautifully natural in the high notes and seductively full in the low, she has mastered the technical demands of this role… She’s a compelling actor, too, if not always entirely convincing…she bravely played the Sempre Libera as a scene bordering on madness and didn’t overdo the piety in the third act. Without doubt a name to watch

  • 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
