English Touring Opera’s Jason gets 4 stars
The reviews are in for English Touring Opera’s bright new production of Cavalli’s masterpiece, Jason, in which Catrine performs the role of Isiphile. The show has received 4 stars from both the Guardian and Independent, praising the performers and players alike.
“…the drama never flags for an instant..”
“…Hannah Pedley’s Medea had heft nicely counterbalanced by Catrine Kirkman’s delicate soprano as Isiphile..”
– Michael Church, Independent
“Van der Linde (Jason), with his silky countertenor, sounds glamorous as well as looks it, and by the end we fully understand why Hannah Pedley’s self-assured Medea and Catrine Kirkman’s desperate Isiphile are trapped in his orbit.”
– Tim Ashley, Guardian
