La Boheme

‘How we were appalled by your tantrums in the café but also absolutely captured and enchanted by your exuberant joie de vivre and sensuality. No wonder Marcello could not help himself when there was the opportunity to be reunited! You brought a beautiful, well-controlled voice to the part and you used it to portray both the fiery Latin passion and the gentle, tender sympathy which are both present in this character.’

‘The performers had clearly worked intensively in rehearsal to arrive at a relaxed, intuitive understanding of each other’s contribution in the piece so that listening, exchange, combination and opposition created a pulse, a rhythm, climaxes, recovery and ultimately a shapely resolution of the work. They are highly skilled young professional musicians.’

Ian (Alexander) Grant  Actor and Producer, London

‘The individual physicality and connection between all performers was another highlight of the performance. All of the ensemble seemed to create their own distinct persona in the telling of their story (vocally and physically). The dynamic interplay and communication between the composer/musician and the vocalists also contributed to generate a connection that was all the more visible because of the intimacy between performers and audience.’

‘Judy Davis’s Auntie and the two Nieces from Regan Gardner and Laura Curry risked comparison with characters from television’s Little Britain, but all three sang well.’

Peter Reed, Opera Magazine


Make An Aria

‘It was excellent, very professional and emotionally tough. Amazingly talented kids and beautiful  venue.’

Audience member, Make an Aria at St Fagans

‘I don’t think I’ve experienced a more powerful expression of place through music theatre or any other means really ever before, and St Fagans has been brought to life for me and particularly the Castle here in a quite extraordinary way. I think it shows really the transformations that creativity and artistic expression can have and can make of a place that otherwise perhaps would not be understood as we have had the privilege of understanding it this afternoon.’

 The Madness Game

‘…powerful performances from Jack Hamilton, Edmund Danon and Laura Curry…’

Rosie Pentreath, Blogger


 A Midsummer Night’s Dream

‘Oberon and Tytania are the king and queen of fairy land, regally portrayed by Matthew Paine and Laura Curry.’

Amber Segal, Bristol Theatre Review


 The Wolves Descend

‘Curry’s vocal is crystal clear and – more importantly – emotive…’

Veronica Aloess, A Younger Theatre

‘Soprano Laura Curry was particularly accomplished as Phoebe, her powerful voice drifting in and out of beautiful discord with Pearson’s hammer-horror composition – certainly one to watch when she finishes her Music Diploma. And no matter how much patrons pay to sit in red velvet seats, you can’t buy a voice like her’s.’

James Waddell, The Public Reviews

‘With fantastic performances by Laura Curry as Phoebe the Werewolf and Guy Withers as Croatian guesthouse owner Mr Goren, this is a solid piece of writing, well worth a look if you’re interested in modern opera’

Hannah Sweetnam, Three Weeks

‘The role of seemingly innocent tourist Phoebe is played by Laura Curry, whose huge and compelling voice totally fills the room.’

Nicola Meighan, Herald Scotland


 The Pirates of Penzance

‘Other commendable castings were Joe Richomme as the Pirate King, who skilfully commanded the stage, and Laura Curry, who brought her wit and mischief to the role of Mabel.’

Emily Simons, Intermission


 Carmen

‘Having said that, many of the individual performances were truly excellent. Some of the smaller roles too were very well played: Matthew Pearson’s ‘Fat Zimmy’ and Laura Curry’s Francesca spring to mind as particular examples.’

Chris Parton, Intermission

‘…highlights included a scene featuring Mercedes (Rosanna Purdie) and Francesca (Laura Curry) dancing with Carmen for the men, which was very intimate and encapsulated a feeling of anticipation…’

Jessica Reid, Off-Script


 After Dark

‘Laura Curry, who sang beautifully in French.’
