Raphaela Mangan - Opera Singer - Dublin, Leinster Event Location: Cork Opera House, Ireland 23rd September 2017
"Mezzo soprano Raphaela Mangan gave a superb performance in the title role, showing the necessary strength and wilfulness of the gypsy girl, as well as rendering such popular arias as the Habanera with a haunting quality that drew spontaneous applause from the audience"

“Mangan’s phrasing and annunciation is impeccable. Her confident portrayal of these works illustrates her musical understanding of such repertoire” “Mangan handles such complicated music quite naturally. Her dynamic range is solid and effective, whilst her virtually pitch-perfect recollection of each song is commendable” “Mangan’s portrayal of Britten’s Give him this Orchid is particularly noteworthy. Flickers of her charisma and acting potential emerge as she dramatically, yet tastefully, grabs on to the half-masted piano lid. The sultry lower notes of the score are perfectly balanced against the powerful arching upper melodies” “each work is intelligently measured and performed with believable sincerity. Much to the delight of the appreciative audience"

“one of the loveliest contralto voices of all time” “most moving of all was the unaccompanied rendering of 'Blow the Wind Southerly'. I felt in sore need of a handkerchief after that”
