Eugene Onegin – Gallery – Kate Valentine (Tatyana)


What the reviewers say:

Kate Valentine’s Tanya, radiant with optimistic innocence in the ‘letter scene’

The Stage

I particularly liked Kate Valentine’s change from diffident ingénue (left alone at her own birthday party after Lensky and Onegin’s row and duel challenge) to assured princess.

Superb: Tatyana dominates (it surely won’t be long before we see this performance in one of the big houses)

Eugene Onegin – Gallery – Damian Thantrey (Onegin)


What the reviewers said :
Perhaps Damian Thantrey’s chisel-featured Onegin was not self-centred enough (after all, after the performance he opened the door for me as I left), but I liked the way he threw over most of the chairs in his final confrontation with Tatyana.

Damian Thantrey’s slicked-back, cold-fish Onegin impresses.

Eugene Onegin – Gallery – Soloists


What the reviewers say: The Stage, What’s on Stage and Classical Music Source:

Splendidly resonant Act III aria from bass Andrew Greenan.

Gremin’s knock-out aria ‘The Gift of Love is Rightly Treasured’, sung with heartfelt ardour by Andrew Greenan

Andrew Greenan is luxury casting as Gremin and Harriet Williams’ youthful Larina and Linda Hibberd’s sympathetic Filipyevna lend equally strong support.  Students Katie Slater (Olga), Panos Ntourntoufis (Triquet), Simon Dyer (Zaretsky), Simon Marsh (Steward) and David William-Matthews (Captain) show bags of promise.

Harriet Williams looked far too young to be Larina, mother of Tatyana and Olga, but she provided a nice double act with Linda Hibberd’s Filipyevna. Katie Slater, as a rich-toned Olga, led a number of Trinity Laban vocal students, which also included a finely-studied Triquet from Panos Ntourntoufis.

Eugene Onegin – the Chorus – Act III and miscellaneous


More comments from the Audience:

We came specially from Amsterdam (where we often go to the opera), to watch that electric first performance – it was well worth the trip. The professionals were excellent, both in their singing and their acting. The orchestra flung their hearts into the music and the chorus, surging in from the wings to fill that space which so well fitted the action, with wholly convincing ‘business’ and great singing, were terrific. Somebody, too, had been working very hard to fill the seats and as you’ll know, an attentive audience adds much to any performance. Amateur? You could have fooled us!

PS. I was tickled pink to see my old C&A jacket on stage, masquerading as a tux. Does this mean when I get it back I’ll be able to sing?
