Young soprano Katja Webb, making her debut in the role, was at her best in Violetta’s more fragile moments, singing with well-judged, subtle inflections and a lovely warm tone. (The Australian)

Webb’s fruity soprano is lithe and adventurous, tackling this little-heard repertoire with thoughtful poise and relish; Wickham is precise and sympathetic. This is an important series noteworthy for its excavations of Modernism in mid-20th-century Australia (Limelight)
