Alexandra Mathew

Alexandra Mathew, in the title role, exhibited a natural innocence while observing the nonsense occurring around her. The aria “Una volta c’era un re” takes her thoughts away from the drudgery of her existence in fairy tale fashion. The chemistry with the hero Prince Ramiro (Hew Wegner) worked splendidly, with the vocal quality raising the standard from the Music Hall environment … to genuine opera.

The best acting of the performance came from … Alexandra Mathew – whose reaction to Polyphemus was fantastically intense, and a real credit to her.

The trio … Alexandra Mathew, Rose Stachniewska and Oliver Marshall … sing a dazzling array of sounds which, for sheer vocal inventiveness, must be heard to be believed.
