“Nadine Benjamin’s Summertime is one of the loveliest I’ve heard….”

Richard Morrison, The Times, October 2018

“Nadine Benjamin as Clara gives a beautifully tender, sultry rendition of Summertime.”

Ivan Hewitt, The Daily Telegraph, October 2018

“Clara sings Summertime to her baby – it’s the first singing we hear, and Benjamin delivers it gorgeously.”

Erica Jeal, The Guardian, October 2018

Nadine Benjamin nails it.”

Tim Bano, The Stage, October 2018

“The singing was terrific.  Nadine Benjamin as Clara opened with a gorgeous, swoopy Summertime.”

Ruth Hansford, Planet Hugill, October 2018

“A special mention to both of Isabeau’s maids, Ermyntrude (the fabulous British soprano Nadine Benjamin, who on the strength of the beauty of her voice this evening has a fine career ahead) and Ermyngarde, Joanna Marie Skillett. The passages where Mascagni entwined the two maids’ voices accompanied by harp at the opening of the third act were transformed to sonic magic by this pair.

Colin Clarke, Seen & Heard International, July 2018

All the female singers are excellent Mozartian … Nadine Benjamin’s sumptuously sung Act III aria … is also deluxe casting.”

Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times, March 2018

Her [Nadine Benjamin’s] rich, glowing voice.”

Tim Ashley, The Guardian, March 2018

The lovely, passionate voice of confidante and Countess, Nadine Benjamin.”

Claudia Pritchard, CULTUREWhisper, March 2018

“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 heard her sing.”

Paul Wing, Winchester Cathedral, 22 August 2017
