Britten Les Illuminations

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance, February 2017

“A characterful performance of demanding repertoire, always expressive and engaging. There was an excellent delivery of the text… Royauté and Marine were particularly effective with impressive coloratura and a vivid communication of the drama.” – Joan Rodgers (February 2017) 

 

Miss Wordsworth, Britten Albert Herring

Dir. Christopher Lane, Cond. Kelvin Lim 

Blackheath Halls, April 2017

“Verity gave an accomplished account of Miss Wordsworth… Her natural stage awareness, meticulous preparation and relative ease at assimilating and performing the eccentricities of Britten’s well drawn character and unique setting of the English text enabled her to create an extremely engaging performance which from the outset was detailed, specific and convincing… Verity’s singing was overall very consistent with impressive diction. Her innate musicality and studied approach to this tricky musical material also deserve special mention, as does her exemplary and professional attitude to rehearsal, coaching and performance in general. Well done indeed on a performance that delighted and entertained the audience and which showed her clear potential as an operatic talent.” – Robert Bottriel (May 2017)

Elizabeth Barnsley (female ensemble), McNeff Banished

Dir. Elaine Kidd, Cond. Jessica Cottis

Trinity Laban Opera, Blackheath Halls, July 2016

“The sense of a vibrant ensemble from the young singers was palpable, each of the women has a very real sense of individual personality and all came together in a striking sense of community. The ensemble moments, from the touching to the angry, were the most striking parts of the evening.” - Robert Hugill (July 2016)
