“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

Nadine Benjamin is outstanding as Mrs Waters.

Robert Matthew-Walker, Musical Opinion, 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.

Christopher Webber, Opera, October 2016 (CD – The Boatswain’s Mate)

… already a magnificent lyrical voice, this is a soprano who needs an opera house to take her on right now.

Eduardo Benarroch, Musical Opinion, January 2016 (Everybody Can! Opera – Otello)

Nadine Benjamin… could hardly be bettered.

Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times, 19 April 2015 (BOC – The Ice Break)

Nadine Benjamin sang with wonderful warmth….
