Culture by Night Review - The Magic Flute - September 2017

The stand-out performance in all respects for The Magic Flute lies with Pamina (Abigail Kelly), a scene stealer in every respect. Kelly may not get to show off her range to the same extent as Briginshaw, but her arias fill themselves with pathos and emotional depth – none more so than in 'Ah, I feel it, it is vanished'. Even in harmonic duets and trios, Kelly's tone is instantly recognisable, beautifully blending with the remaining vocal lines but subtly standing out through its timbre and vibrato. This performance draws the ear without fail every time.
