Soprano Layla Claire’s Donna Anna = “stand-out vocal presence” at Glyndebourne
With only two more performances left of Don Giovanni at the Glyndebourne Festival, IMG Artists just posted some review highlights on their website, click here to read the post.
Here’s the consensus regarding Soprano Layla Claire’s Donna Anna:
“The tall, blonde Claire has a ravishing soprano voice of trumpet-like clarity with creamy tragic colourings, and she comports herself with a stillness that gives a real moral intensity to Anna’s ambiguity about her boyfriend Ottavio.”
-THE ARTS DESK, full review here.
“the stand-out vocal presence was Layla Claire, also Canadian, whose Donna Anna revealed a rich dramatic soprano,…oozing with class and possibility.”
-GUARDIAN, full review here.
“Layla Claire’s elegant Donna Anna boasts diamante coloratura and is alertly communicative in the recitatives.”
-DAILY TELEGRAPH, full review here.
“Layla Claire’s Donna Anna dominates through the size of her voice and the electric current that runs through it.”
