"[Andre Henriques not only sounded the part but was also a comic delight right down to his golden underwear, taking every opportunity to dig out the humour of the role.]
This was also true of the two sisters who could play up the ridiculousness of their characters and Lucy Mellor and Aimée Daniel certainly did that.

Fortunately they also gave impressive singing performance to match the almost slapstick comedic work."

- Mike Smith, Art Scene in Wales
(La Cenerentola, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama)

- David Hart, Birmingham Post
(L'enfant et les Sortileges)

- Mike Smith, Art Scene in Wales
(Gair ar Gnawd, Welsh National Opera)
