Reviews

Stanford – THE VEILED PROPHET (Wexford Festival)

“Soprano Sinead Campbell-Wallace was parted as Zelica, the focus of Mokanna’s attentions. She was truly excellent in the role and delivered an emotionally expressive performance. Campbell-Wallace possesses an attractive, agile voice, which blooms as it climbs in the upper register. The quality of her phrasing was formidable; clothing her words with well-placed accents, colorful and dynamic flashes enabled her to create a passionate and emotional portrait. So many examples could be cited to illustrate her talent, such as the Act one lament, in which she captured the anguish and fears of seeing Azim sent into battle.”
Alan Neilson, Operawire (November 2019)

Puccini TOSCA – Theater Regensburg

“The undisputed star of the evening, however, was quite rightly Sinéad Campbell-Wallace. Her Tosca vibrated with sensuality, intensity and violence that almost seemed to frighten her. The vocal scale ranged from softly placed pianissimi through a well-articulated middle voice to an electrifying top that resonated powerfully in the space – outstanding.”
NMZ Online, Juan Martin Koch (September 2019)

“The Irish soprano Sinéad Campbell-Wallace had already sung the title role most convincingly at the open-air performance in the summer and rose to great form once again. Vocally, it was all you could wish for: she has a touching intensity that carried through into her emotional acting.”
BR Klassik, Peter Jungblut (September 2019)

“Sinéad Campbell-Wallace was a vocally superior Tosca, totally convincing in all things musical, from the height of jealousy to murder, from the throws of love to suicide.”
Mittelbayerische, Claudia Böckel (September 2019)

“And with a Tosca like Sinéad Campbell Wallace, anything is possible. The more dramatic, the better  – that such a level of singer is engaged in Regensburg, speaks volumes for the house; she is indestructible, stunning, thrilling”
Süddeutsche Zeitung, Egbert Tholl (July 2019)

“…the grandiose singing of Sinéad Campbell Wallace in the title role…”
Mittelbayerische, Peter Geiger (July 2019)

“Sinéad Campbell Wallace was captivating as Tosca with initial ferocity above the stave and with delicate pianissimi in “Vissi d’arte”
NMZ Online, Juan Martin Koch (July 2019)
