Press Reviews

The Irish Times **** 'Murrihy thrills with her voice while fully inhabiting her symbolic assignment with her presence'

The Examiner **** 'The hits just keep on coming in this excellent first season for the Irish National Opera company.'

Golden Plec **** 'Paula Murrihy as Judith is a marvel to behold'

The Journal of Music 'one of the operatic highlights of recent years'

The Arts Review **** 'visually stunning and its singing and music are nothing less than sublime.'

Bachtrack **** 'Musically, the show was pure joy. It’s seldom that you go to a performance where the singing flows in a such perfect way that you take it for granted'. 'Bloom was a tormented Bluebeard, with a wonderfully dark bass.'

Opera Magazine 'This was a searing, dramatic staging which raised the company’s status in no uncertain manner'...'it was a marvellous coup de théâtre, leaving us to stagger out into the night in a state of shock'
