OperaJune2015Ian Fox, writing in Opera magazine June 2015, describes RIAM Opera’s Suor Angelica as a “marvellously fresh presentation” with an “atmospheric” set by Aedin Cosgrove and “well-observed” costumes by Catherine Fay.

“It was an inspired idea for the young Irish director Tom Creed to link (the Magdalene laundries) to the story of Puccini’s Suor Angelica.”

“Rebecca Rodgers was outstanding as a really believable Angelica.”

“Also making a strong impression among the large and admirable cast were Carolyn Holt as a severe Zia Principessa … Sinéad Ní Mhurchú as a powerful Zelatrice and Sara di Bella as a chirpy, independent Genovieffa.”
