“What a wonderful person she is and what a voice!
She clearly has a superb future in front of her and more than one person said to me today after the recital that this was one of those days when you remember exactly where and when you were when you first her sing.”
Robert Matthew-Walker, Musical Opinion, October 2016 (CD – The Boatswain’s Mate)
Nadine Benjamin is outstanding as Mrs Waters.
Christopher Webber, Opera, October 2016 (CD – The Boatswain’s Mate)
Much depends on the casting of Mrs Waters, and Nadine Benjamin’s creamy lyric soprano hits her musical marks in the scena and everywhere else.
Eduardo Benarroch, Musical Opinion, January 2016 (Everybody Can! Opera – Otello)
… already a magnificent lyrical voice, this is a soprano who needs an opera house to take her on right now.
Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times, 19 April 2015 (BOC – The Ice Break)
Nadine Benjamin… could hardly be bettered.
John Allison, Opera, June 2015 (BOC – The Ice Break)
Nadine Benjamin sang with wonderful warmth….
Alexander Campbell, The Classical Source, April 2015 (BOC – The Ice Break)
The cast was uniformly committed and excellent. Nadine Benjamin’s warm and penetrating soprano allied to a very sympathetic stage persona made her an excellent Nadia.
Charlotte Woodley, Fringe Opera, November 2014 (Lontano – The Crossing)
Soprano Nadine Benjamin was astounding as Imoinda…. Her voice brilliantly captured the complex emotions of the heroine – it soared when there was hope, and fell into darkest despair when she was feeling pain and loss.
