Critical Acclaim

  • As Lucretia, Anne Marie Stanley owns the stage (she covered Thurza in Glyndebourne’s recent The Wreckers, incidentally); her voice is powerful yet can usher in the most remarkable vulnerability and indeed, emotional pain as the work hurtles towards its tragic conclusion. -Seen and Heard International

  • Anne Marie Stanley had the sort of deep mezzo voice that sends shivers down the spine in moments of tragedy. -Plays to See

  • As Lucretia, mezzo-soprano Anne Marie Stanley sang with luscious tone and vivid dramatic presence -Opera Today

  • Stanley fully inhabits the role by taking the audience on a dramatic journey from her initial privileged complacency to a deranged self-loathing -London Unattached

  • Singing Lucretia, Anne Marie Stanley’s rich mezzo-soprano voice seems to come all the way up from her heart. -Culture Whisper

  • The story of the Austrian Woman (sung phenomenally by Anne Marie Stanley) was gripping. -Trouw
