Gabriella Cassidy‘s Gilda makes a big impression, her lyric voice perfectly-pitched across the registers, and showing off a beautifully-crafted cantabile which is full of emotion”

Review | Olyrix | Rigoletto | Diva Opera | Festival de la Vézère 2023

Gabriella Cassidy‘s Gilda is fragile, innocent and, at the end, incredibly touching. She has an easy fluency in this role, depicting a daughter who is over-protected and wishes to flee the paternal nest, using her personality and ample soprano both together to create an all-encompassing dramatic engagement.”

Review | ClassicToulouse | Cosi fan tutte | Diva Opera | Festival de la Vézère 2022

Gabriella Cassidy returns, this year as Fiordiligi, a role that allows us to hear how her voice has developed, with superb projection, and a beautiful line that spreads right across a range of easily more than two octaves. She is the star of the evening, without any doubt.”
