Last night was a huge success for Lucy Crowe’s return to Covent Garden in her role debut as Adina in Donizetti’s ‘L’elisir d’amore’ alongside colleagues Vittorio Grigolo and Bryn Terfel in Laurent Pelly’s acclaimed production. An amazing kick off to Lucy’s 2014/15 season, having given birth to her second baby just under three months ago. The critics have praised Lucy Crowe as “bringing a peachy fullness of tone – and irresistible flirtatiousness – to her exquisitely-sung Adina” Michael Church, The Independent.
“She brings a lovely purity of tone and an alluring stage presence…”
Barry Millington, The Evening Standard, 19 November 2014
“He meets his match in Lucy Crowe, who chalks up another impressive success as a beguiling but steely Adina. Her light lyric soprano – pliant, silvery, easy at the top – is a perfect fit for music which she expresses with insouciant ease and charm….a ravishing “Prendi per me”, but it’s clearly high time this outstanding British talent was dispatched to Donizetti’s Lammermoor.”
Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph, 19 November 2014
