Kate Howder - Mezzo soprano c.Robert WorkmanGlowing press for mezzo Kate Howden’s performance of Turnage Twice through the heart in Shadwell Opera’s double bill with Erwartung: “Howden was exceptional, the understated gentleness of her performance provocative in the moral friction it offered. Hers is an even, impeccably produced voice, and the beauty and control she brought to her fractured musings offered a very different portrait of trauma to Pierard’s” Opera, December 2016

“… mezzo Sarah ChampionSarah Champion - Mezzo Soprano - © Studio 52 - Low res , herself a student of Miricioiu, was by far the discovery of the evening. Her assumption of the part of Dorotea, Lina’s cousin, was little short of magnificent. She clearly has a wide repertoire, as she has taken part in a staged setting for American Opera Theater  of Messiaen’s song cycle Harawi. Here she was fully in Verdian mode, making every phrase count. The overriding impression was that one wished Verdi had written more for Dorotea.” See and Heard International
