Graham Vick and Birmingham Opera
Why I love Birmingham Opera...
Here is an excerpt of a review of my Christmas 09 performances of Handel Messiah in Auckland:
"Wendy Dawn Thompson was in top form. Dignified yet expressive, she also added sensitive decoratiopn and her voice was in perfect control throughout its wide range. Her singing of 'He was despised' was hearfelt yet restrained - one of many highlights in the performance. it was hard to believe that this was the same performer we had seen earlier in the year living it up as the extrovert star of Rossini's Italian Girl in Algers. It makes me keen, impatient even, to see what she does with Cherubino in this years Marriage of Figaro."
