Laura Mitchell


Laura Mitchell

Héro: Béatrice et Bénédict / Welsh National Opera

“Laura Mitchell has moments of real splendour in Hero’s extraordinary Act 1 aria with its huge written-out cadenza…”

The Arts Desk


“The voices of Laura Mitchell and Anna Burford were beautifully blended and counterpointed here, the darkness of Anna Burford’s voice and the light clarity of Laura Mitchell’s working together to beautiful effect, a ravishing moment of stillness. Mitchell was also impressive in her spectacular aria earlier in Act I (‘Je vais le voir, je vais le voir’) where she handled the cadenza with considerable aplomb.”

The Times


Tosca / English Touring Opera

“In Act I she was irresistibly playful, flirting and teasing her recent conquest, and as all the familiar unfolding politics, torture and threat of sexual violence impinged on her character, Ms Mitchell’s voice showed great reserves of power, emotional expressiveness and the necessary searing intensity. Her exclamations of horror and outrage at the opera’s denouement were thrillingly delivered.”
