Rachel Kelly's Reviews for Glyndebourne on Tour's Cosi Fan Tutte

"As Dorabella, Irish mezzo Rachel Kelly glowed with a warmth expressive of the younger sister's impulsive, passionate nature. The full, rich tone of her Act 2 confession of indiscretion. 'E amore un ladroncello' (Love is a little thief), was winningly honest."
Opera Today, November 2017

“Rachel Kelly’s bright, wide-eyed Dorabella. Kelly's winningly sly Dorabella - vocally reminiscent of Ann Murray's - was the perfect foil.”
Hugh Canning, Opera Magazine, December 2017

“But then there’s Rachel Kelly, who plays her sister Dorabella with irresistible charm and openness, singing beautifully”
The Guardian, October 2017

"Rachel Kelly (Dorabella) the pick of the women"
Whats on Stage, October 2017

“Rachel Kelly sang a delicious Dorabella, radiating honeyed warmth”
Bachtrack, October 2017

"Kirsten MacKinnon and Rachel Kelly make a marvellous pair as Fiordiligi and Dorabella. Alike in many ways yet clearly different in voice and appearance as well as in their responses, they act most convincingly while singing their richly-ornamented arias and duets magnificently."
Eastern Daily Press, November 2017

"Kelly’s Dorabella is also puckishly full of naughty fun and has a very expressive face, perfect for this role.  "
