Hartmann – SIMPLICIUS SIMPLICISSIMUS (Independent Opera)

“The role of Simplicius, as the boy is named by his hermit protector, is given to a soprano, and for this belated UK première Stephanie Corley made the role her own, as athletically boyish in her acting as she was focused in her singing.”
Matthew Rye. Bachtrack (Nov’16)

“The key to this tricky allegory is the figure of Simplicius himself, a role soprano Stephanie Corley inhabits with uncanny skill – a virtuoso piece of musical theatre.”
Alexandra Coghlan, The Independent (Nov’16)

Verdi: OTELLO (Birmingham Opera)

“Desdemona is beautifully acted and sung by Stephanie Corley”
Rian Evans, The Guardian

“Stephanie Corley was outstanding, in voice and characterisation, as Desdemona”
Fiona Maddocks, The Observer

“Stephanie Corley’s Desdemona is intensely, sweetly moving: an innocent in a guilty world. Aided by Stephen Barlow’s lyrical reading of Verdi’s score, her Willow Song and Ave Maria are spell-binding: a loving submission delivered with trembling intimacy across the vast space.”
