Galatea Acis and Galatea

"Lucy Hall’s soprano is vibrant, full of rippling colours, relaxes and blossoms as it rises. She was terrific as the flirtatious Galatea, whose cocked eyebrows suggested was she was quite tempted by Polyphemus’ ardent attentions." Operatoday

 

Morgana Alcina

 

“Best of all was Lucy Hall as Morgana, portraying a head-tossing minx flawlessly, and singing throughout with winning musicianship and virtuosity.” Roger Parker, Opera Magazine

Zerlina Don Giovanni

"Lucy Hall perfectly captured the subtleties of Zerlina’s naivety and knowing, whilst she is seduced by the Casanova-like Don, she still manages to get husband-to-be, Masetto, back under her spell. " BachTrack

"Lucy Hall’s Zerlina was perky and vivacious. The scarlet red of her wedding-day frock and Masetto’s natty waistcoat were a welcome splash of colour amid the sub-pavement dreariness. If this Zerlina proved out of her depth with Giovanni, she fought him off feistily; and, Masetto was putty in her hands. ‘Batti, batti’ was openly flirtatious but Hall made what might seem an un-PC advertisement for sexual violence, earthily erotic and charming." Opera today.com

"Lucy Hall is a charming Zerlina, highly animated, full of smiles and laughter and naughtily flirtatious. She is at her best in the reconciliation scene with Bradley Travis (Masetto) when it convincingly clear that he cannot resist her charms." British Theatre Guide"

"The sweetest and perhaps most Mozartean singing of all comes from Lucy Hall and Bradley Travis as Masetto and Zerlina. Youthful, carnal and unreliable, they make a fascinating pair. You'll be glad they're getting married but you won't give much for their chances." Whatsonstage

"Lucy Hall is a firecracker Zerlina, bristling with feisty energy and impossible not to watch no matter who else is on stage." Opera Britannica

'Lucy Hall was a slightly pert Zerlina, full of charm in a winning performance. Light voiced, she brought grace to the music yet was full of character.' Planet Hugill, 4*

Barbarina Le Nozze di Figaro

"Lucy Hall was a delightful Barbarina and will step up to Susanna later in the tour" The Times

Susanna Le Nozze di Figaro

"Lucy Hall was undoubtedly the star of the show" BachTrack

"Lucy Hall's Susanna was a delight, her light, soubrettish Soprano fully in keeping with traditional Figaro expectations. Her approach had a special degree of insight and nuance that made you realise the fragility of her position." Peter Reed, Opera Magazine

Tatyana Eugene Onegin

"Lucy Hall's diamond-bright yet fluid Soprano fits this dreamy yet determined Tatyana." The Guardian

"Soprano Lucy Hall sings prettily as the shy teenager, injects drama into her feverish Letter scene and emerges in the last act as a self-assured woman, a published author who rejects Onegin’s declaration of love." The Stage

"Soprano Lucy Hall portrays the changing nature of Tanya’s character with charisma and powerfully emotive voice – her “letter” scene is absolutely the highlight of the production." Reviews Hub

"Principals are double-cast, and the trio I saw were red hot. Soprano Lucy Hall found all the juice in Tatyana’s letter scene" Whatsonstage

Marzelline Fidelio

"Following the overture, we heard the best singing of the evening in Lucy Hall and Benjamin Hulett’s duet “Jetzt, Schätzchen, jetzt sind mir allein” for Marzelline and Jaquino. Both possess young, fresh and lyrical voices, with excellent diction and a real sense of engagement with the words and music. In her aria “O wär ich schone mit dir vereint” Hall excelled in applying a tasteful vibrato to a crystal clear tone." BachTrack, Andrew H. King

"Some of the most generous singing comes Sam Furness’ Jaquino and Lucy Hall’s Marzelline in the first act." The Stage

and Lucy Hall – a pure-voiced Marzelline – in their charming opening duet. Most memorable amongst the ensemble numbers was the Act 1 Quartet, “Mir ist so wunderbar” where a moderated vibrato and near-perfect balance produced beautiful results – its sense of stillness a highlight of the entire evening." BachTrack

"Lucy Hall's Marzelline is endearing fresh" The Spectator

"Lucy Hall brought moments of genuine emotion to Marzelline." Manchester Evening News
