Sarah Gabriel - Soprano

‘British soprano [Sarah Gabriel], the berserk Lucy, sang splendidly.’

Opera Magazine
Lucy Lockit, The Beggar’s Opera (Britten/Gay), Castleton Festival, Virginia, USA,
dir. Will Kerley, cond. Lorin Maazel

‘[With] some exceptionally difficult music to sing, [Sarah Gabriel] rose to the demands with outrageous ease. The audience was astonished at her volley of coloratura pyrotechnics which underscored her furious aria di parlante “Va tra le selve”. With staccato high Ds and Es flying all over the place, it was a scintillating and blistering rendition…The voice itself is pure and vibrant…A remarkable talent indeed that should, if talent counts for anything today, see her through to the top.’

Anthony Lias, Opera-Britannia.com
Artaserse (Johann Adolf Hasse) Ensemble Serse, London, cond. Christopher Suckling
